He’s just a little guy and the girls in the coop really don’t take him very seriously.  They call him a Frizzle as he has crazy feathers all over the place, can’t fly and is only about a foot tall at his best.  We call him “Bob” and he’s our friend.

Summer is here.. well kind of.  I don’t think we’ve had two consecutive days over 80 degrees as of yet but I’m still hopeful.  Here’s Leo enjoying his ice cream at Kettle Cove Creamery which of course was followed by a visit to Kettle Cove for a dip in the sea.  Yup, he went in with is shirt, shorts and Keen’s on and then had a roll in the sand to top it all off.  We’ve smartened up and now have a change of clothes in the car… just in case.  The bit I can’t figure out is why at home water on the clothes is such a problem.  Even a little drop of water on his shirt is followed by “wet sleeves!!!”.  Enjoy the good weather!!

This year for our family vacation we decided that Acadia National Park would be the place to go.  It could have not been a more perfect holiday!  No cell phone reception, no internet, no crowds, just views galore and fresh air.  Lovely!  The kids were perfect too and let us enjoy 3 epic bike rides around the beautiful park.  Honestly though, it did feel a bit like we were on some kind of “fat camp” as I pulled a trailer full of kids (and camera) up some huge hills.  Thank you Mother Nature for the decent weather!  Here’s some of the pics from the trip.
