12 of 12 July 2009

Oh it was a glorious day for this month's 12's. Don't know what 12 of 12 is? Then visit Chad Darnell's blog and get the 411. While you're there check out some of the 12's from people all over the world.

To celebrate the fact that it was NOT raining today, I had to get Ethan outside for some vitamin D. I decided that we would talk a hike around Shuman's Point which is located on Lake Wallenpaupack.

First, Ethan asked for a bath. I had to oblige

All of Ethan's favorite bath toys

Black Eyed Susan in my wildflower garden

Hiking at Shuman's Point on Lake Wallenpaupack

Stone walls that go right into the lake, because Wallenpaupack is man made and there used to be a town down there.

Here's a view on the old wall and you can see, it goes right into the lake.

We took a break on one of the outlet beaches and ate some blueberries

Praise be to the good weather gods!

My date for lunch, he's so cute I guess I'll excuse the fact he eats with his hands.

After the hike I was invited to take a tour of one of the Arts Alliance member's garden. These pictures don't even do these gardens justice. They were breathtakingly beautiful.

Everything was terraced.

The coolest mailbox I've ever seen!

Thanks again for stopping by and checking out my 12's
