Stella and I have been spending lots of time outside lately. For some reason she has not developed an appreciation for nice, quiet, air-conditioned, indoor activities. She and Matt like to tend to the garden and I like to let her pick green tomatoes and various flowers from around the yard. When it gets too hot and sticky (ie every day during St. Louis summers) we turn on the water and she is content to splash around all day long. As long as I can find a nice shady spot from which to observe the fun, we are golden. Looking forward to ripe tomatoes and cucumber infused water to keep cool the rest of the summer.

Ps. Don’t let Stella’s scowls and funny faces fool you. She is having fun. Really.
