We have not managed to go far abroad this summer but have been busy with a month long visit from Grandma, wedding (pictures to come), beach and mountain trips, and activities around town. The pool and local fountains have been popular given the heat and humidity here in the south US.


We are lucky to have various fountains and these in the middle of downtown Knoxville are especially fun during the farmer’s markets. Sitting at one of the outside restaurants while the kids run back and forth to the fountains is “almost” Mediterranean feeling!
