Soren had his first movie theater experience today. It was a small theater, with a small screen, but still way bigger than our television. So, not surprisingly, Soren was entranced.

Entranced by the advertisements.

Entranced by the previews.

And entranced by the movie—Minions—itself. I don't know how much of it he really understood, but a giant screen, a big bag of buttered popcorn and some sour gummy watermelon slices... what's not to like?

Tree Frog Treks

Our first year with two trekkers! We had a blast—we'll be back next year!

We had some fun with stickers today.


Soren gave me his sticker...

...and then he got distracted.

(remind anyone of Kids in the Hall?)

Oh, the places you'll go...

Soren loves a good reading of Oh, the Places You'll Go! Indeed, he didn't even notice I had come to pick him up until the reading was done.

It was, perhaps, an appropriate book for today, since it was Soren's second-to-last day at Little Bear.... (School is out for the summer, but he's spending this week at camp at Little Bear.)

heading home

Post-fireworks hangover.

Morning play before we say goodbye.

'til next time!

Fast-forward several hours to our layover at O'Hare. The food is distinctly less exciting than the feasts we had in Maine.

Post-9 p.m. in San Francisco is post-midnight in Maine...

fireworks and sparklers

At dusk...

...the fireworks start...

...but they were very far away, and the sparklers were very close. The kids liked the sparklers.

Fourth of July Parade




Hot dogs!

(Very red in Maine, no?)
