Though the solstice has passed and the days are long, we know from experience that summer weather never begins in our neck of the woods until July 5. So while much of the country was sweltering this week, we donned our Northwest "summer" attire (which looks remarkably like autumn, winter, and spring attire... hmm...) for another round of puddle stomping and slightly soggy backyard explorations.

Sorry, D, we don't need to water today!
C's reaction to the stormy day: "Well, at least the plants like all this rain, right?"
