Is everyone in New England all set with this heat and humidity? We certainly are. I’m so sick of it. I come home and we hang out in the rooms with the ac units because if I walk into any of the others I turn into a walking soggy puddle.
Finally today we got some relief from the heat and humidity. No, the weather did not break, instead we visited my Aunt Donna and had a great time in her pool. We were there on a day where she was watching her grandson Logan. Eva and Logan play well together so this was extra fun. Eva enjoyed the heck out of the pool. She swims with a little bubble on her back and she does a great job. She drinks a bit of the pool water but she motors across the pool pretty well.
Later that afternoon we went to the Bow Wow Meow Luau. This was a charity event to raise money for the organization Friends of North Attleboro Animal Shelter. I’m in charge of that organization’s website which is fnaas.org. My sister Tara is part of the organization too. She does a lot of work for it and so we got our tickets from her. The night was a cookout and there was a raffle and a DJ. We spent much of the night talking with our next door neighbor, which is 150% more than we’ve had a chance to even though we live right next to each other. She is looking for someone to take some photos of her two sets of twins. Yeah two sets of twins, pretty amazing. So I’ll take the kid photos and add to my portfolio.
Eva went strong the entire day and night. The drinks had paper umbrellas in them and she was in heaven. Eva is still very much into Mary Poppins and she love umbellas because of this. She also loves Carousels (which we’ve established many times before.) Well paper umbrellas are now no longer safe because Eva is on the loose and looking for them.
Eva was also the big winner tonight, taking home two handmade bracelets. They were pretty nice.
Okay so the photo-a-day is of a great praying mantis that was hanging out on the Black Eyes Susans. I took that photo with my Sanyo EC1 in super macro mode. I went back out hours later and took another shot with my Nikon D80 and the Sigma 18-250mm lens. I like the other one too because it looks like the PRaying Mantis is looking at me saying, “Can’t you leave me alone?”
