we're experiencing a very rainy summer so far. our beach days have been limited, outdoor play happens in between downpours and thunderstorm, and i just weeded the garden after a full two weeks of watching it all grow from the rain.
the good thing about all this rain is i don't feel particularly guilty for having to work inside at my computer all day long. but on those days i devote solely to the little one and our summer together, we are just itching to get outside.
one day we had a friend over and we went down to the pond (a 3 minute walk from us! swimming, fishing, and kayaking!) to fish and catch frogs.
on the way back we bumped into our neighbors. they asked how many fish we caught, and the little ones said excitedly "a thousand striped bass!"
well, not exactly...but a bullfrog was good enough :)
