Grumble. A week ago, our desktop computer crashed and acted as if all of my files never existed. Apple helped us find my files, and we thought all was okay until a few days ago when I tried to manipulate some photos. 100 photos gone. Boo! And, sadly the photos were corrupted just before they were saved onto our external hard drive, so they aren't even recoverable there. As I type, Tom is working with Apple to recover them and whatever else we lost while I sit here at the laptop, fingers in my ears, whistling a happy tune.

So, please forgive my absence. In the midst of our computer troubles was our crazy beautiful, super fun camping trip to the shore. I have photos and stories to share from that adventure as well as a few other little bits.

For now, I am living in pretend land where I didn't lose any photos. Not one. Not even the one where the girls are wildly pedaling in our town's bike parade.
