in july we...

-harvested carrots from our garden

-celebrated the 4th with the annual neighborhood parade, lemonade and making blueberry turnovers for the pool party across the street, stayed up late watching the fireworks down the block and being dissed by Rex while he hung out with the big boys (ouch!)

-lived in an artist's studio in cambridge, mass for two weeks (i fell asleep looking at that nudie portrait each night, ahh sweet dreams). Thank you SO MUCH, Louisa and Jamie! Kiva and Rayna, we miss you!

-enjoyed our family at martha's vineyard

-had a family talent show

-and had our pictures taken with Big Papi

It was a busy month, emotional. Greg's mother was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. We were fortunate to be with family during this difficult time. Family flew to Boston from Nashville and Malaysia to be together, to help, to cry, to hug, to laugh. We are a great family. I feel lucky to be a Becker.
