A Midsummers Recap

July 25th is probably technically right smack in the middle of summer, yet somehow it feels like we are in the home stretch. It's been a fairly busy couple of months. I don't have any brilliant ideas for a post, so I think I'll borrow the bulleted list idea--from a blog I really like.

--Heading to our 2nd Phillies game of the season this afternoon. The seats for our last game were directly up from 1st base. WAY up. As in the next to the top row. At least I got a nice shot of the Philly skyline that we were right next to:

--Just got back from a long weekend in Portland, Maine. Highlight of the trip was spending time with my best friends, but a close second was the Wilco show on Friday night. I took a ton of pictures all weekend, with a few shots that I really really like. I was hoping for better shots from the concert, but between my lack of experience with my camera, the crowd, the dark, and the Magic Hat, I didn't get many good shots.

Better shots from the next couple of days after the concert:

Display at the place we bought much lobster, one of my favorite pics. (I think it would make a great puzzle.)

Lake Harmony

--We're leaving on Monday for Martha's Vineyard for a week. The first thing anyone who has been there says when I say I'm going is "It's beautiful" followed immediately with something like "Bring a sweater!" So I have no high expectations for hot, sunny beach weather. But hopefully I will be able to continue to improve my photography skills and bring back some decent shots.

I take it from context clues that Magic Hat is a drink? :)

Have fun at the 'Yard.

So jealous. I've always wanted to go to the 'Yard. I had no idea Martha Stewart owned it though.

Bone: Magic Hat is beer. I thought I was the only one that never heard of it before. All the cool kids at the concert were familiar with it.

Jeff: If you ever get the chance, go. It's really pretty and a unique trip, I'm glad we went. Ms. Stewart would fit right in.

And just so you both know, we refer to it as "the island" **sips coffee with pinky extended**
