The return of fishing season

The girl needs some waders!


Wouldn’t be a successful day without a bullfrog capture too!

Stink eye Munch Man is always good for a laugh…

While the old folks drank homebrew to their hearts content, the monkeys looked like this most of the day…

An Earth Day hike

April 23, 2010


Water… Stone mazes…


Wicked cool forts…Backyard composting lesson…Testing out the turning barrel method…

Beats the one we have like this…  pretty though!

 A disagreement over rock identification… (Gabe says crystal, I say coal?)  Friends. 

Must be Earth Day!  OR,  just about any other day in our lives…  😉

Lastly, a collage of pics taken just for me.

Kicking it kosher

April 17, 2010

Some coarse salt and liquid watercolors (and REAL watercolor paper)…

makes a mighty fine piece of art…

Even more fine when you’re almost NINE!

Simone was all about the process.

Especially the accidental one!

For those who enjoy it condensed… bringing it to you collage-style.  🙂

Massebesic Audubon

April 16, 2010

Hiked the trail at the Audubon today and did the WHOLE loopy thingy.  Simone did it in flip-flops.  (Bad Mommy.)

Our goal was to find the water.  We did.

Amazingly, no bribery was needed to get this.  Just a fib that there was a barfing salamander on my head.  😉

This was Harper’s first lake trip.  She was impressed. For real.

Lucky for us, a birch tree kept a freaky eye on the kids while we kicked back by the lake’s edge…

It was a beautiful day for a walk.  Gabe, of course, found critters left and right…

The wiggliest salamander you ever saw!

Caden tried his darndest to do the same (to no avail). He lifted rocks left and right for potato bugs to call his own.

Ginormous stumps proved to be a picturesque stop.

Most of the time the monkeys were glued to their Doherty siblings.  The big boys…

The middle girls…

And the wee lads…

The day ended with a much needed picnic back at the Audubon center and a sorting of treasures ceremony amongst the ladies.
