Slow down you move too fast...

I really think that I do not know how to slow down. Rather, I seem to have a problem shifting from "lazy" mode to "turbo" mode gracefully and smoothly. Lately I seem to operate at two speeds and I really need to find a happy middle place.

It's summertime. We're supposed to slow down. It's summertime and the livin' is supposed to be easy!

Our days in Newport were jam-packed with activity, which, with young and overly energetic children is a wonderful thing. But not for me!

A favorite of mine and the boys was the Newport Flower show. If ever you are in or near Newport, RI the last week in June you simply must stop by. Sponsored by the mansions, the Flower Show is nothing less than spectacular. Even my boys delighted! I armed them with cameras and they shot away with me. We looked at styles and colors and marveled at the beauty before us. Admissions is $29 for adults and children under 12 are free. Children over 12 are just $6. It's an inexpensive and magnificent event!

My mind and body and feet are exhausted from days of non-stop activity... I'll let photographs I took do the talking...
