finn's first dip in fresh water

On Saturday, Finn experienced his first fresh-water dip in the Eno River. How did he like it? The face says it all.

Um, guys? This water is NOT bath water. And despite my many rolls of chub, I don't have sufficient insulation. Please get me a wet suit, not a birthday suit, next time you try this.

Your slightly unhappy son,


sweet honey in the rock

On Sunday, we went to a free concert in the Duke Gardens. Finn was much more appreciative of the wonderful harmonies of Sweet Honey in the Rock, a female a cappella group par excellence. They sung him to sleep - the highest compliment that a musical group can receive.

It was lovely to see the gardens abloom with people.

What did you do this weekend?
