This speedy fellow was in my path on my way to camp. In fact, it seemed as though he (she?) and his entire extended family was out for a morning stroll - I think it must have been the night time rains that drew them out. Whatever the case, I luckily had my camera and snapped this shot!

Tiny Bubbles!

Bubble makers are the most fun. Well, maybe they're a close third behind cotton candy machines and photo booths, but even still - bibles bring out the child in everyone...even children. Just another day at the camp play ground with the bubble maker.

Went with the camp to a local pottery painting place. The kids had all made creations the week before and they got to paint their items and have them fired in the kiln. It was fun to go around taking pictures of them and their concentrated faces.

Broken Lady Bug

Everyday is nature day at Step into Summer Camp! I can't remember who found this lady bug (who is missing most of one wing) but the kids were fascinated by her. They were fascinated by almost anything that moved - I guess that's what happens when you're 4. Do broken lady bugs still bring you luck?

Strike out! Nothing like spending a summer afternoon at a Red Sox game.

Bride to Be!

Nothing like a bachelorette party at Foxwoods to...well, I'm not really sure what I can divulge, let's just say a good time was had by both brides. Bethany liked this picture of her (taken at the Hard Rock Cafe at the beginning of the evening) and so did I. Besides, there's nothing incriminating in it, and that's a good thing, right?

Boston at Night

I took this picture as I left the Fenway area. I wish I'd had my nice camera with me, but I love how a car drove by and I was able to capture the trail of lights.

Freedom Trail

Took this as the Boston Pride parade finished up. It was sort of a rainy gloomy day, but that didn't put a damper on the festivities. I'm not in love with this shot, but I like how Kings Chapel is in the background - a location that has likely seen many historical events and changes during its 250 year history!

Scooper Bowl!

Scooper Bowl!, originally uploaded by laxlaws.

This was the 25th anniversay of the Scooper Bowl - an all you can eat ice cream event to benefit the Jimmy Fund. I recruited my brother and two others to join me and we managed to plow our way through quite a bit of ice cream (as evidenced by the cups we went through) before feeling as though we were going to die. As my brother Christopher put it "one could turn diabetic in an afternoon at this event!"


Bee, originally uploaded by laxlaws.

Yet another picture captured in the public gardens. I hadn't realized how often they change out the flower beds there! I caught a few of this bee on these beautiful flowers, but I liked this one best as it shows the bee and flower pretty nicely.

Bulldog Boy

Saw this little boy on campus during reunion weekend. If bulldogs were human, I imagine they woudl look like this little boy. He saw me taking his picture and flashed me this grin (?). He reminds me of my brother when he was little - a little bruiser!

Amherst Baseball

I went to Amherst College with Becca for her 5th Reunion. I took this picture as we went down to the baseball field to watch the old geysers play a game against one another. If you're ever around the Amherst campus, I suggest you take a walk around - it's beautiful!

Had to get way down on the ground to capture this shot of the catepillar (centepede, millepede?). It had some great colorful markings on it's back, which can barely be seen from this angle. Hopefully no one stepped on this little guy after I was done with him!

Garage Door

Garage Door, originally uploaded by laxlaws.

I love this door. I'm not sure why, but I do. It's right next to one of my favorite restaurants in PTown, Bubbalas.

Boy Hawk

Boy Hawk, originally uploaded by laxlaws.

I had seen this little boy a few times around Provincetown - and when I finally ran into him (and his barely visable purple mowhak) I asked to take his picture. I think he was tired, and had maybe been crying, but he smiled moments afterward as the girl with him offered him a hug, kiss and a tickle!
