At Rise: Al Fresco

Thursday, August 16th 2018

At Rise: The Oberhauser Four have awoken at their campsite on Lovell’s Island overlooking Boston City and Harbor.

DaddyLove is laying a fire down the bank from the site.

Mama: Making a fire already DLove?

DLove: Thought we’d toast up some bagels.

Mama: Oh nice!

DLove : Yes. Maybe with a little salmon and cream cheese.

Mama: Wow! Really?!

DLove: Yep.

Gavin Boy: [Pops head out of the hammock.] WHAT!?! We don’t have any CAPERS?!?

At Rise: How Low Can You Go

Still Friday, August 10th 2018

 

At Rise: The Oberhauser Four have made it to the beach for their much anticipated weekend in Hull.

Gavin: In Greek Mythology it’s the imprisonment pit of the Titans, and just a giant pit that nobody can get out of, below Hades.

Mom: Woah. Deeper than Hades??

Gavin: Yes.

Mom: OK honey.

Gavin: [Resumes digging.]

Dear Gavin:

What a joy it is living around your curiosity, intellect and humor.

I loved sharing this nugget with you this morning (even though I know you would never find Greek Mythology boring):

Love,

Mom
