Cross in the Woods

Jenny and Chris' ceremony up in Indian River was absoutely beautiful. I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

And I only took... what seems like a thousand pictures... and they were all terrible shots... well, lets just say this one WOULD have been the best one... if it wasn't for this damn bubble!

Being the science geek that I am... I think this is so cool. These are the little guys that make that loud ringing noise on those dog days of summer... they're so loud!!! I've thought these little guys were so cool ever since I was a little girl. And their life cycle is so CRAZY!

Billions of periodical cicadas are supposed to show up this month in parts of the Midwest after spending 17 years underground!!! As nymphs they burrow underground and suck sap from tree roots. 17 years!!! How old were you 17 years ago???
Don't worry... they're nice.

big diggers

... i realize no one else will find this that terribly exciting except for us... but some big diggers put a big hole in the ground where our future home will sit. Kris is thrilled. We had to take a picture.
