Yours, Mine and Ours: Summer at Home

I took the summer off from blogging. Now summer is un-officially-officially over. I replaced blogging with summer. It was rich with adventure and people, both of which, I love. We did not leave the state: unless you count the east side of Tahoe as Nevada, which I don't because it is too beautiful to be Nevada.
In the woods near my house are three trees: Douglas fir, oak and cedar. They are growing so close that they nearly are braided together. They are thriving and old. As I run by them on my jogs, I'm reminded of my summer at home. Your people, my people and our people all growing up and together.

Pre.S.  These photos are not in chronological order because this Google blog GUI stinks and I'm too lazy to edit the HTML. Yes, my husband is a software engineer and no, I'm not as nerdy as him, but some of it has rubbed off on me.

Here are the three trees with our sweet friends and family.

Fast friends visit from Virginia for a snowy visit to Tahoe in June.
The kids learn to swim on the swim team!
Old friends introduce us to new friends!
The kids learn to sail!
A great kid lives with us!
The boy turns 12 at our family reunion.  His voice is changing!
We spend time with my new nephew.  I'm in love!
We spend time with my busy niece.  I'm in love!
We show our Czech and Ohioan friend the great redwood forests.
Or, just the Ohioan see the trees, everyone else can't see.
We learn about keeping bees and not getting stung.
We hike with my dad!
We cap it off with a visit to the NorCal coast.
