My Son Takes Pictures Too

Distance to Milano

I wasn't even aware he took this picture until I uploaded it to the laptop. They had a bunch of different signs with cities around the U.S./world and the distance to each from Oak's Bluff in Martha's Vineyard. He has obviously inherited his mama's italophile gene because he chose Milan.

P.S. The other day my son looked at me and said, "Sei la piu bella del mondo." I was shocked. I mean, I know he speaks a little Italian (mela = apple, rosso = red, machina = car, etc.) but to come up with that?! Turns out he was reading a burned CD cover.

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted

Written by Stinni on Wednesday, August 27, 2008

I'm sitting out on our deck, trying to enjoy the cool weather, courtesy of Canadian wind blowing south; trying to soak it all up before we head back to our hot/dusty home. With the exception of a few humid weeks, this summer has been fantastic weather-wise. For the past few weeks, it's been more like fall than summer, which will make leaving even tougher.

My children are with grandma and papa (don't call him grandpa), a luxury they/I don't get in Kuwait. I chose to use my free time wisely: look through rental applications for the winter, do laundry, fold clothes, and write a blog post.

This morning I saw a private jet fly over my house and instinctively said, "Teddy's flying back from the convention." Whenever you see a private jet flying into the Cape on Friday, you say, "Teddy's coming home." On Sunday it's, "Teddy's going back to DC." It's just what we do here. I can't imagine a time when we won't be able to say that.

I lied, I'm actually going to use my free time to write two blog posts. Maybe three. Mostly pictures.

Salem 2008

Written by Stinni on Monday, August 04, 2008

We made our annual pilgrimage to Salem over the weekend and as usual, we took some interesting pictures. Here's my favorite:

Snake in Mouth

I forgot to ask his name, but his red-tailed boa is named "Stone". As you can see, they're very close. After he was done showing us how he could put the snake in his mouth, the snake wrapped himself around the guy's neck. The guy was super friendly and offered to let my children pet the snake but my children were kind of freaked out by the whole thing.

Here are the other two favorite pictures taken this year. The first is of a snail on a cemetery wall. We saw a couple of snails there. The last picture is of an old home in Salem, where we fell in love with the misaligned windows.
