A Week in Pictures

I have been using my new camera every chance I get.  I have so much to learn about how it works and hope to take a photography class at some point.
Hello sweet boy.  I can't bear to cut your beach boy locks. 
The weather has been fantastic lately.  We have been going on family bike rides in the evening and it stays light until 11 pm.  How great is that? 
It is hard to believe that this lake was frozen over a few months ago and people were pushing prams across the ice.
To celebrate summer solstice, the Danes burn witches--well, fake ones.  (Once upon a time they used to burn real ones.  Or at least thought they were burning real ones.)

We went to our first witch burning last year with my dad and D--it was really fun.

Once the sticks are piled high, the scarecrow witches are roped up and a guy with a paint sprayer filled with kerosene sprays it all down.  Then a match is lit and the whole neighborhood stands around the bonfire and sings a Danish song.
Ethan seemed to enjoy watching the bonfire with Daddy.  He kept pointing at it, saying, "more, more!"
On the sewing front: Ethan's quilt is growing by the inch.  At this rate he might receive it by Christmas!
Can you spot the peacock amongst the clamshells?
Be sure to check back next week for a GIVEAWAY!!!!
