Summer photo recap

Obviously this was our first summer with five kids.  High five!  We made it through.  Clearly there was no blogging, but here are some of my favorite moments.

Saturday with the dolphins

Last Saturday, we finally celebrated Zadie's birthday with her gift of a dolphin encounter.  We are trying (all be it with very little success) to stop acquiring so much stuff.  Our playroom looks like a going out of business sale at Toys R Us and, as you can imagine, they still prefer to play with dirt and bubble wrap.

So this year, Zadie's gift was a chance to meet the dolphins at our Gulfarium up close and personal, and it did not disappoint.  If you know Zadie, you know that there is not a human on earth that she would prefer to animals.  Someday I imagine her heading into the wilderness like Dian Fossey in Gorillas in the Mist.

She's already asked for her next birthday gift.  When she turns 8 next summer, she'll be old enough to get in the water with the dolphins.  It's a good thing they're in a pool; if they were out in the gulf, I'd be a little worried that she'd ride off into the sunset and join their pod.
