The New England Revolution

Thanks to our town's Youth Soccer Association, we scored some pretty great tickets to the New England Revolution game Saturday night.  We went as SUPER Fans, and got there as soon as the gates opened.

 We were most excited to see Diego Fagundez play.
He's from a neighboring town, and is one of the youngest MLS players in the league.  He graduated from High School the same weekend as our Sweet Mesquite.
 There was also a wedding... 
 A rowdy and enthusiastic crowd
and some good soccer.

 There's so much good about summer. I can't possibly blog about it all, but thanks to cell phone cameras and Instagram, here's a quick pictorial from our second week of freedom:
 (I love that I found this little peeper up at the table waiting poolside--he looked like he was expecting a mixed drink and some company.)
 We went shopping for running shoes, and bumped into a couple of nuns doing the same.
 We paid a visit to some newborn bunnies.
 There was competitive hide-and-seek.
 A visit to Enrique at UMass always lifts my spirits.  I love that my kids love each other.
Reading is an integral part of summer.  I've been immersing myself in some really great writing, including (but not limited to) Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead
Some fantastic Ensign articles.
Light summer meals.
I love them.
(My family is trying to embrace the scarcity of meat on the menu)
 Swimming.  ALL-in.
 Mini-golf. And extended cousin visits.
 Walks. And random acts of fitness.
 and being able to say
"Gone Fishing."
Happy Summer!
