It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

You *know* it's a party when these things get dusted off and hauled up to Maine (the accordions, not the relatives). I had some uploading glitches with Google's Piccasa (ahem He and Ho), so sorry for the backdating... but family reunion was in June and I have a lot of catching up to do! Despite the dismal weather, it was a glorious week on the lake, and a little rain or 51 degree temps weren't going to dampen our spirits - - or swimming. We made the best of things by rocking out, drinking a lot, acting silly, and eating our faces off. Lucia also provided some entertainment with a puppet show - a full (well, pretty close) production of the Wizard of Oz... luckily she had some non-union crew there to lend a hand. All in all, a pretty great week - oh, and did I mention we also got to watch THE BRUINS WITH THE STANLEY CUP!?!? Woo to the hoo.
Although family reunion is a tough act to follow, we finished up the month with more good times including birthdays with old (now older) friends and strawberry eating, er, picking. Whew, can't wait to see what July has in store!

What a Quacktastic month!

So much blog material, so little time! Our month started off with a little R and R for the newly minted partner and her very lucky spouse. The firm put all of the partners up in a seaside resort down on the cape, where Mama Mer spent the majority of her free time in meetings whilst I pursued other rigorous activities. Of course, we have Mimi to thank for allowing us the weekend getaway - she bravely took on both girls for 2.5 days and I believe she captured some of it on film. Apparently they spent all of Saturday at the Wizard of Oz exhibit at the Children's Museum... pictures to follow soon! As if seeing the Wizard of Oz exhibit wasn't enough, the girls recently had the chance to drive a WWII amphibious landing vehicle! Just another day in the life of the luckiest girls on the planet. Speaking of lucky... did you know that in June we also celebrated family reunion AND got to witness the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup??? It's all true, and I will discuss in the next post. In the meantime, watch this.
