Random Summer Fun

4th of July here means a bike parade.

I made those cool paper medalions.

Enough for all the cousins.

'Cuz we are inclusive like that.

Our screen door
which squeaks
and gently bangs closed.

Just like the ones you remember
from your childhood.

Our porch doubles as a nail salon

for a certain tweenager.

Illumination week, which is over
but I can't bear to remove the festive lights.

Ice Cream Social

One of the best events of the summer...
the ice cream social.

I volunteered to scoop ice cream.

And work the window.

I love the giant flags 
that celebrate our nation's birth.
They are probably all taken down this morning.

Gentle reminders:

Another great day in Northern Michigan.
