obviously, i haven't been around much [or at all] this month, and i will continue to be absent the rest of august. that's because my family is in town from pennsylvania, and as soon as they head back, we are headed to new york to see the rest of my family. i may pop in from time to time [i know, at least, to talk about my river, since he just had his first birthday] but i expect to be much too busy to be writing much of anything. hopefully september will bring a flurry of pictures and words about our fun times this month! until then, here's a picture from a photoshoot we had on the first of the month. more to come!
