I think this photo of Colin is a perfect representation of a perfect, patently "summer" moment. James has worked really hard on the garden this year (I, alas, cannot claim any responsibility for said garden). You know how the kids bring home plants for Mother's Day gifts from their various activities - Colin came home from either preschool or Sunday School with a mystery plant. We weren't sure what it was, but it germinated and when it started growing climbers we figured it was a veggie, so into the garden it went. And, indeed, it was a pea and last week it produced it's first peapod. Colin was absolutely thrilled! He was so proud of his little pea plant, and played with the fruits of his (and James') labor before eating the whole thing. The pea mustache thing was all his idea, silly boy.
