Hello everyone! We just got back from a wonderfully long vacation on Block Island and I'm planning to post photos soon. But before I do that, I want to let you all know that I'll be moving my blog from public view to private view. For the last three months, I've been getting an enormous amount of hits from less-than-savory websites that I think are taking my photos and adding them to nefarious sites. We don't want our daughter's photos to show up when a creep types "hot beach teen" into their search engine. I'm sure you all understand. Well, not all of you will understand but sad for you perverts.
Unless I'm reading the private setting incorrectly, it seems that I will need to add the email addresses of acceptable readers on my Private Only setting. I'll add the emails of those people who I know read the blog, but for the rest of you who want to continue reading but whom I don't know personally, just send me an email (address to the right) and let me know that you'd like to be included. It would be helpful if you could drop me a line on your email to let me know you are a real person and not another internet creep.

Last weekend, Elizabeth and Owen came to visit us on Block Island!
Owen is almost four now, if you can believe that.
He is absolutely adorable - very talkative and social.
Getting Elizabeth and Owen to the island was complicated - Sean ended up having some health problems and couldn't join us and then Elizabeth had what could politely be termed a "hard" ferry ride. Let's just say that the ferry was rockier than usual and Elizabeth hadn't taken a dramamine.
Luckily things calmed down after they arrived. We had a picnic on the beach, brought Owen to Mansion Beach where he happily jumped the waves and played in the ocean. He made us proud in that he was a true beach bum baby.
Owen brought a backpack full of action figures and we all got to play superheros with him.
We also took him to the zoo and the fudge shop, out for Killer Donuts and we walked to the Painted Rock.
Owen calls me Marfa and he can't seem to figure out who Georgia is or what her name is, so he calls her Marfa, too. We do look alike!
He can say Pippa Middleton perfectly!
We hope that they will visit us again next summer (with Sean :)
