Finishing photos from July 2012

Grandfather Bob and I took Joseph to see Circus Smirkus this year and it was AMAZING!  Circus Smirkus is a traveling circus comprised of young performers and they completely blew all of us away.  Joseph adored it just as much as Bob and I.  I used to watch them when I was young and it was such a treat to get to see them again.

Another performer of whom I have very fond memories is Tom Verner.  I just love sharing these memories with Joseoh.  We got to see him perform at this years Festival-on-the-green (a week of four free performances a  day in Middlebury).

We spend a lot of time in the summer messing around with the neighbors grandkids (they come to their grandparents two days a week) especially in their awesome pool!

And camping 2012!  Started off with a bang.  Seriously.  A HUGE storm.  We played cards while it poured and then weathered thunder and lightening during the night.  I even got scared and made Joseph sit in the car with me for a bit, while he threw a fit cause no one else was as wimpy.  I do seem to get wimpier as I get older.

After that it was all sunshine!  Much better.

A huge highlight was our neightboors.  Why?  Cause there were two families, each with five kids!  Heaven for Joseph.  Amazing to me (dads visited once, but mostly 2 moms and 10 kiddos).
