we had such a nice, LONG weekend - even though it was swelteringly hot the whole time. we occupied ourselves playing the wii with "papa" frey, eating my mother-in-law's amazing homemade strawberry ice cream, spending time with my dear friend rebecca, (we've been good friends since the day we met, as 14 year olds! can't believe that was 11 years ago..) and watching some beautiful, fiery sunsets.
feels like summer is finally here to stay a while!

...playing in the sun...
...and in the house, when the sun is too hot...
...and with flashlights!
we've been picking strawberries...
...and a new phone case. :)
we've been eating lots of plantains (soaking them in garlic-salted water first..)
...and we've been exploring "dick's sporting goods" while daddy shops for fishing supplies...
...and we've been watching the occasional "mr. bean" episode after olive goes to sleep.
(i have a strange infatuation with rowan atkinson.) ;)

my wonderful in-laws watched olive for matt and i saturday, while we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon/evening to ourselves. we had the best time...in one day we crammed in:
-antique shop browsing (where i scored three vintage detachable collars for $12!)
-ice cream and dinner out
-a live production of the musical, "1776" (turned out to be not that great, but it's always fun seeing a live performance.)
-LOTS of talking. and laughing. which we needed very much.
there needs to be more date days this summer!

we recently spent a wonderful week at the beach, with family and friends. i did a horrible job of remembering to take pictures of all the fun things we saw and did, but i did take little video clips on my iPhone over the week, and i meshed them together over the last couple of days into a "video postcard" so you can see what we saw!
p.s: if any family members really don't want me to share this here, because you are in the video, let me know and i'll take it down, asap!
i've been missing blogging, and after taking quite a long hiatus i'm back to give it another go! so many dear family and friends live very far away from us, and i hope to use this space to send them (and you) "little postcards" from our little adventures.
thanks for following along!
