The Fourth and the Fifth

      Some have been stormy, wet, and freezing, but this 4th of July was sunny, dry, and warm. It feels like summer now...very little precipitation the last week or two and we've reached a day-time high of 90.
     The Comstocks hosted all 39 of us (I think that's a record) for an outdoor dinner and plenty of fireworks.

 Christian, Luke, and new friend, Lindsay.

 Nora and Rachel.

Matthew and Ridge - yes, he's wearing a kilt.

     Eric turned 22 the next day. (Happy Birthday, Eric!) We celebrated at Dwaine and Mary's (Tara's grandparents) who are only a 35-minute walk away. Tara made a chocolate and raspberry cream cheese cake, with fresh raspberries - Eric's favorite.

     Mary does a bit of gardening, with beautiful results:

     Flowers are my favorite part of summer.
