Summer Fever

  Enjoying Summer... Good food, friends, floating in our canoe and camping! (plus river trash clean-up)

For Father's Day, we took kiddo camping for the first time, in New Hampshire's Franconia National Park, and she LOVED it!

We finished Father's Day weekend off with a picnic by Charles River with friends.

  Last week, we took a trip out to Harvard, Massachusetts, to Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge where we paddled and removed trash from the river.  We were inspired by this guy: Trash Paddler.  It was rad to share such a beautiful time in a silent, serene place, and to show Harmony a bit of planet-aid in action.  Our family discussions in the canoe are such a special bonding time, and to spend it also greening up the river, was great for teaching her more about our values and our ability to make a difference for the environment.  She was thrilled to see a muskrat, which swam right up to our canoe, checked us out, then swam away.  We also saw flying cranes, fish, and a really pretty species of blue dragonflies we had never encountered before.


We've had some yummy meals from our garden lately, and I had my friend over to pick and eat with us. She made a great salad for us, then showed kiddo some hula-hoop moves!
