Missing home during the summer

By Friday, August 02, 2013 ,

It doesn't look like I'll be able to make a trip back to my parents' house this summer. They still live in the house I grew up in, and a little part of me will always think of it as home...

Most of these photos were just taken with my ipod last summer, before I got the camera I'm using now. But even with the poor image quality, they bring back a lot of memories. The cat's name is Benny.

My parents live along the mid Atlantic East Coast if the US, in a fairly rural area. We have neighbors, although one is a dairy and corn farm. 

My father dug this pond when I was a kid, now it's full of flowers, lily pads, goldfish and frogs.

We've had pet chickens for years. I can't remember how old I was when we got our first set of chicks, but we had to keep them in the house under a heat lamp until they were big enough to go outside.

  1. Looks magical! I've not been home in 4 yrs. Blah! Way too long. But it is expensive to go back to the states! Next yr I'm planning on staying the summer though.

  2. You have some very nice memories of home. Hope you're able to make it back soon.
