i canoe, do you?

justin got a new toy.

another superb craigslist find. i wasn't as sure as justin that a canoe was high on our list of 'things to buy', but i must admit we're enjoying it. we've had it just over a week and we've been out 4 times. i know some of this may be the excitement of our new toy, but we've really been enjoying it and i think we'll continue to. after our canoe outing today we stopped at the bulk food store in alexander, where they have amazing subs.

in other exciting news, justin got a haircut. he's all aerodynamic for the 90 miler canoe race next weekend. [um, yes 90 miles. he and mike are doing a 90 mile canoe race in 3 days. good times.]

smoking hott.
i will leave you with my 1st ever sunflower...

a nice sunny greeting when i walk out the back door.

summer=family vacation.

pierce family vacation=
games & laughter
coffee & donuts [& chicken if you ask linc]
walkie-talkies & laughter
hiking & day trips
biking & boating
star gazing & laughter
fires & smores

inlet bakery. maple glazed donuts. words.cannot.describe.

linc kept us entertained.

he also kept us walking. 'i wanna go see the letskis!' [jet skis]

i had my 1st ever banana split.

we enjoyed our sweet, sweet cai guy.

a few good family hikes.

too much fresh air, perhaps?

night kayaking. um, watch out for the bats.

celebrated mand's b-day with a homemade ice cream cake.

lots of star gazing, watching the falling stars.

owl's head fire tower.

...maybe it just runs in the family.

lots of time spent with my favorite person, who took all above photos.

greek to me.

justin and i have a new favorite restaurant. mythos cafe in brockport. it is so worth the drive. they have this amazing garlic & herb butter. and this amazing feta dip. and roasted red pepper hummus. and their pasta is amazing. justin and i had a wonderful evening the other night. we had dinner at mythos then went for a walk on the canal. it was wonderful and a perfect warm summer night.


i can't resist playgrounds.
god is so good. there are so many wonderful things in life created for us to enjoy. like warm summer evenings. and amazing sunsets. and the smell of grass. and the sound of katydids.
