Aidan inspects the stone wall at the sunken road in Fredericksburg, VA

Peaceful isn't often an appropriate word to describe Aidan, but relative to the historic violence of Marye's Heights in Fredericksburg, it seems entirely fitting.

This is how Aidan invariably locates Netflix on the internet. Note the missing "l" - he considers it unnecessary!

Aidan the gnomon at Portland Head Light

I was having fun with a wide-angle lens in these Portland pics, leading to some goofy distortion...

At the fish market in Portland, ME. Aidan was quite wary of the lobsters, but had a good time watching Mommy handle them.

The Skinny Pancake in Burlington, VT. As I was putting this page together, Aidan reminded me that he really wanted Fiona's sweet crepe (to which he is pointing) rather than his crepe-batter coated chicken tenders. I ended up eating most of Aidan's delightful food. I really am quite glad that Aidan is helping to fill in the details!

The Skinny Pancake in Burlington, VT

This is pretty goofy: after our drive across much of Vermont, we parked in Burlington along Lake Champlain and took in the sights briefly. Then we stopped into The Skinny Pancake right along the shore. While the wife ordered, I played with the flash until I could get a good exposure against the bright sun behind the kids. I got everything to come out, but ended up with one happy and one grumpy kid in each picture! Here's a link to the companion photo. The food, by the way, was quite nice...
