Nephew under water.
Two buddies having fun.
Canoe ride for three.
Spit at me baby, one more time.
My only issue with the camera is seeing the image on the display screen while under water, I can't. Most of the time I aim and push the button so the captured image is not always what I was expecting. (Another review of various weather proof cameras.)
Each summer we are spoiled. Several people in the family display their ability to cook, bar-b-q, and bake the best dinners and deserts. This year, my mother Wyona, once again demonstrated her ability to create treats that indulge the eater in the decadent and delicious.
At the forefront, her delightful Amaretto Chocolate Cheesecake. In the back a plain Cheesecake that was eventually smothered in dripping caramel and fluffy whipped cream.
Perhaps Wyona made it....perhaps Glen did....either way, this fresh Strawberry Creamcheese pie should be made again...and again...and again...
A few more flowers from Glen and Janet's garden. It was so enjoyable having such a beautiful and wide selection of flowers with which to practice.
I was talking these pictures with my upper torso and camera hidden in the shrubs and my legs sticking out in the air at odd angles. My cousin came by, only saw my random legs and declared, 'I am not even going to ask what you are doing in there!'
Bud and bloom.
The shining sun.
A few more treasures from the pottery wheel. What a wonderful place to create, relax and catch up with relatives.
Rebecca's mugs with interesting details.
A spiky larger pot I made last year to which I added mottled, dripping glazes.
One more from this year. I lost so many pots to the kiln goddess this year, I need to celebrate the few that made it through.
May the coming summers and holidays bring you and yours much fun, delight and interesting projects.
