July Fourth Long Weekend

We found ourselves back at Spot Pond on a lovely lazy Sunday.

We squeaked into the Good Harbor beach parking lot after waiting an hour in traffic to get there. Yuck!

Eoin and Eamon loved the waves. It was hard to get Conor to stop playing catch on the beach!

This is classic Eoin


Spy Pond Fishing Expedition

A few people had mentioned fishing at Spy Pond in recent weeks, and told us there was a playground, so we determined to check it out.
It was more urban than we are used to, and we were not convinced we would catch anything, but we were successful!

Our first catch

Eoin caught his first ever fish!

Eamon even tried his hand but he was being a punk about accepting help

Looking over to Papa and Conor

Face Paint

Eoin has always loved all kinds of costumes. We were at a birthday party that had an awesome face painter and Eoin waited very patiently for his turn and for his very detailed application.

Another layer

I was obsessed with his golden eyelashes

Sun Pictures

When Papa stayed home to help me out after my knee surgery, I had to find some projects outside so he could attempt to do some work during the day. A lovely sunny day was perfect for making sun pictures! I got the idea from my Martha Stewart Living magazine last year. We tried it once last summer and it was a lot of fun.

I’m shocked they’re not touching it

Notice the Lego is now smashed

“Don’t touch Eamon!”

The pictures came out VERY well. I loved the effect that happened to the Lego because it was bulkier. There was a great shadow effect. I sent that to Dad for Father’s Day so I don’t have a picture of it.

The axe was moved by a boy’s foot so that one came out weird

We continued the sun theme by planting sunflowers
