What I did on my summer vacation

I haven't posted in a month and a half, so here are some photos of me doing stuff over that time.

Goofy SmileMe in the kitchen, with a goofy smile. This is July 12th or so, and entirely random. My sister was busy making blueberry pancakes at the time.
Visiting Sarah's parents' house in New York, where our nephew Benjamin (22 months old here) enjoyed running around outside naked. I am sitting in one of our two new camp chairs from the L.L. Bean store, and Benjamin loved putting his cup in the little cupholder.
We grew lettuce in our garden, and generally forgot to harvest it until it had grown really large (which made it pretty bitter). This is a single red lettuce plant. Luckily, I enjoy bitter lettuce. Our garden has also yielded numerous radishes, many bunches of swiss chard, a bunch of green beans, a handful of cucumbers, and lots of dill and rosemary and some basil and mint too.
Sarah and I went to Ogunquit, ME for a day trip for our anniversary. Here I am standing next to a flowering vine by the little Portuguese-run market store on the main street. The trip was fun, even with the huge thunderstorm that passed through in the middle of the afternoon.
Here's the two of us laughing as I attempt to take our photo from arm's length with a DSLR. Seems like it worked pretty well!
For a week or so in August, we went and joined my family camping at Ausable Point on Lake Champlain in NY. For a couple hours one day we dressed up as pirates (with my sister and some of my cousins and an aunt too) and marauded around and then drank mojitos (or fauxjitos for the kids) like real pirates do. Arr!

pirate photos
ryan, where did the rest of those pirate photos get to? Your fam would like to see them sometime! I'd also like to try to get Johnny Depp in there with us.
