Seventeen Year Cicadas

While we were at the lake over Memorial Day weekend, it just so happened that the seventeen year cicadas had hatched and were out singing in force. I have never heard anything like it. They were so loud it was all you could hear until dusk when they retired for the evening. Pretty cool to be there for something that only happens every seventeen years. The next time they hatch the girls will be about to turn 17 themselves :)

I AM SO GLAD YOU'RE BACK!! I've been dying to see how things are going! The weather in New York has been heavenly, but pretty soon we'll be in the 90's!! Tell Stephen "hello".
