Sunny days—fifty of them, give or take, all in a row! This weather has been amazing and unprecedented. Unlike that of our less fortunate neighbors in other regions, it's also been very, very pleasant. It's been dewy enough, overnight, to keep the grass green (mostly) and it's been nice enough every day for hiking, camping, swimming, and sunbathing. With daughters who are 5, 7, and 12, we're at that stage as a family where we can actually go on and enjoy such adventures with a minimum of tears (and no dirty diapers).
This summer has been fantastic. I can't say enough good things about it.
