Summer 2009

Newport Flower Show 2009

Daniel and James went this year and Daniel participated in the flower arrangement design contest. The judges awarded Daniel the "Daisy Award". It was a little rainy so all the fancy umbrellas came out which couldn’t have made James more happy.

When I was little we use to sell Kool-aid but Daniel decided to pot some plants and see if he could peddle them. Living on a cul-de-sac made for a very slow and disappointing afternoon. But the fun was in the creation and anticipation which was a big part of the project and took most of the day.

James' Picnic

James was determined to eat outside even though it was raining. He concocted an offset umbrella which was designed to keep the table dry during lunch... amazing the ideas he comes up with and the patience and creativity with which to put it all together. How could we say no to eating out in the rain.... it was a good lunch and we stayed relatively dry.
