Stoney Boy

Missing something?
The other one is very loose, too.
"All I want for Christmas...!"
We had a non-functioning electronic that Stone was delighted to dis-assemble. He spent 2 hours working on this, very seriously, I might add.
Some stuff from the inside, all laid out so the master technician could keep track of his progress.

What do you do in *your* backyard?

Saylor has a love affair with fire. After this, he rigged up a water boiling contraption. Studying to be the next Bear Gryls or Survivorman, I do believe.

Catching up


We were invited to Isaac's 10th birthday party. He was a weekend camper at the campground we stayed at, and we struck up quite a relationship with him. He's a very kind little boy, so patient with Sage and loves anything I happen to be cooking...adding his sweet little..."mmm, that smells good" even when it was nothing but a huge pan of vegetables sauteeing in olive oil to be served over scrambled eggs. We'll miss him, but will keep in touch, no doubt.

My birthday was spent in Aitken, MN (john was working there, so we followed along). John returned to the room with a pizza and a cake and a funny card for me. Sage enjoyed the cake! (so did I...it was marble truffle something or other. Veddy goooood!)
Sage's bridge contruction and a safe crossing for his wooden mouse.
More friends from the campground.
At the Como Zoo, in St. Paul with our new friends from Rochester.The cutest little baby you ever did see!
Turtle boy...
Swimming in September...in MINNESOTA! It was a gorgeous 80 degrees, so we headed to the beach!
The river had many interesting little things to catch.
