Old Greek Dress

As is the tradition, we spent the Fourth of July weekend up at Sue's grandmother's cottage on the ocean in Maine. It's much the same every year, only this time Violet was able walk around and play in the cold, cold water. She was initially shocked at just how cold the ocean was, but quickly warmed up to it (ha!), and certainly outlasted our tolerance to it. Funny how a cold ocean doesn't seem to bother kids as much as it does adults. Even when it was foggy and 55 degrees (and that was probably warmer than the water temperature), there were children brave and foolhardy enough to splash around without wetsuits. I got extra chills just looking at them.

Sue's grandmother had a surprise for us. She pulled out a dress that she bought in Greece when Sue was a baby, and dug out a photograph of Sue wearing it in front of the cottage. So of course we had to re-create the photo with Violet (shown here). We're keeping the dress in case the cottage is still in the family when we have a granddaughter. Check back in thirty years.

(For now, here are more photos of our trip to Maine this year.)

A friend of mine just saw your name as a credit for the Lego Men photo in an article and sent it to me - we freaked out!
We are rabid fans of Peanuts and recognized the name Joe Shlabotnik immediately. I was determined to figure out if it was, indeed, your real name. Alas, it is not, but it's sure good to see that awesome name put to good use and encounter another Peanuts fan!

Here is the article:

P.S. Violet is a living doll!
