She walks over to the lake by our house to feed them
One of the great new places in our new neighborhood
Anya will return ducks!

Professor Cupcake mentally prepares for the hurricane
The forecast looks bleak
We have prepared and Anya has started to go crazy with all the hurricane days off from school
The kids get in one last bike ride before the maelstrom begins. The storm ended up missing us completely.
Anya playing in Sasha's room
Our second attempt at trail biking
When we went at the beginning of summer we were bit by several horseflies. This time was fly-free!
Anya on her first field trip of the year
The airshow at Oceana Naval Airbase
Holly and Anya super excited for the airshow
Just kidding. They actually don't like the airshow at all
But it was still early in the day
And there were balloons
But then the noise
the noise, noise, noise, noise
Then the heat
the sweltering airshow runway heat
Exhausted. Hurray for the end of the airshow!
At the park for a picnic with Sasha's new school
Frisbee with Anya
Holly makes a catch!
The haunted dollhouse in our back yard gets a proper light
Alan goes to Atlantic City
I have never been there before
Driving in and arriving at the neat old hotel that Holly booked for me
The view from my room, after I had them move me to something higher and nicer
The view from inside the room
My bed and I
Walking toward the boardwalk
Back towards my hotel
The Atlantic City Boardwalk
The kids will like this place
Hard Rock Hotel. Should I go see Christina Aguilera tonight?
Or just eat all these deserts?
Over at Caesars Palace
I'll eat dinner here
The most amazing Lobster Mac N Cheese I've ever had
Winning some slots
The view from the rooftop bar at my hotel
Good night Atlantic City!
Good morning Atlantic City!
Time to leave, also the hotel is on fire (alarms were blaring when I left, and fire trucks were arriving on the scene.) I didn't see this place last night, maybe they have a breakfast buffet?
Arriving at the ferry
This was really fun
Ferry Video 1
and even though it took a long time
They had giant pretzels
And it ended up reducing my drive by an hour or so
Ferry Video 2
On the way home I had wanted to stop at this clam shack that I really like on the Eastern shore
But then I somehow missed it when I was driving
When I got home I stopped at the store and bought some frozen stuffed clams to make up for it.
Pulling into shore on the ferry

Heading off to home
Dawn at the Neptune Festival
Sasha's school was one of the schools displaying at the student art show
They took home several awards!

Portrait of the artist
While Sasha spent the day with her friends, Anya and I played at the festival
Skating around town
Out to the boardwalk
Viewing more of the art
Hey! That's my friend's name
This years sand sculpting was OK
I'm kinda tired of everybody doing these designs
I like the fancy castles the best. Like this one.
These are great, but not castley enough
We'll check back in a few years and see if the trends have changed
But this Greek sandwich and Anya's cheese fried could not have been better!
