Languid Summer Days

In between our various expeditions and cooking experiments we had the laziest most relaxed summer days around. We sat in the yard watching the kids chase the cows and play with the hose. We listened to Frank run full speed, shrieking, trying to catch the cat and then trying to squeeze under the sofa when he found her hiding spot. We goofed around on the laptop and played scrabble on our ipods. The kids played dress up and Frankie got a haircut. It wasn't listless, it was relaxing! So often on vacation we try to squeeze in as much as possible, filling every ounce of time with one activity or the other, and usually return home exhausted. That did not happen to us in ABQ as we spent about half of our time just kicking back. We were lucky that Ryan and Jess were in town the same time as us so we got to hang out with them a bit also.
On a side note, I was perusing the internet looking at miscellaneous gardening stuff when I came across this article - - Really cool pictures and ideas, check it out! Hope all is well! XOXO -Amber

We had a great time without being exhausted. The pictures say it all. I loved every minute.
