James likes to chase Norah around--her she is trying to escape! Better open your eyes, Norah!

And here's Chiara---a self-portrait--on that rainy trip to Plymouth.
Plymouth was actually really neat, and I wish it hadn't been raining. We did get to see the oldest European cemetery in New England, and that was fascinating. James and Jim found gravestones from people who had fought in the Revolutionary War!
At the reunion, we had a horseshoe tournament in the George Herrmann Memorial Horseshoe pits. Uncle George was a horseshoe fanatic, and everyone kept saying things like, "George wouldn't have let that one slide." Uncle George will be fondly remembered!
p.s. Here is Nicholas trying to win the tournament!
Here is Norah in the car on our way to Cape Cod. She was a real super-star. Due to some severe under-estimates on the part of Google Maps, we were in the car for about 26 hours, and she only whined for about 40 minutes!!!!! Not bad if you ask me!
We are trying to name this Giraffe....any ideas?
I thought Anita and I would be among a crowd of 30-50 people who drive all the way out to SW Minnesota to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant, but I was mistaken!!!! You can see all the cars in the background, there. We estimated about 1000 to 1500 attendees!!!! I guess there are a lot more Laura Ingalls Wilder fans than I thought!
In late July (yes, I know, I need to blog more often), we went to visit Brett and Anita and Sophia in MN. Anita and I went to the laura Ingalls Wilder pageant. James and Brett went to see the Dark Knight, and Sophia and Norah played together (with a babysitter of course!).
It was a great trip, and we all had a great time. We even got to see Anita's parents' farm, and there were some sheep and cows there....Norah liked that a lot!
