Miles the Photographer

Move over, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Miles est à l'appareil.

Look for new work, Richard Avedon. Miles has the camera, and he's not giving it back.

Ein Mittesommers Nachtstraum

Miles got his first taste of Shakespeare with the Wooden O Theater's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island.

We were joined by the delightful Elfendahl family, visiting from the East Coast. Their patriarch, Mark, memorably portrayed Oberon in the MIHS Harlequins' production of the same play. Mark, along with Miles' dad, went to high school with Ol' Will Shakespeare, sometime in the late 1500s.

The kids were spellbound throughout by the action on stage.

Talapus & Olallie Lakes

Miles' next hiking excursion featured his biggest supporting cast yet. In addition to his regular sidekick (Daddy), he was joined by Aunt Jane, soon-to-be-Uncle Craig, and cousins Jonathan and Kati.

Alki, by and by

Miles was all ready to go for a day of fun and sun at his Grandma Margee's place on Alki Beach.

The views of Puget Sound were spectacular.

Just as importantly, there was cake.

Aunt Ruth from New Mexico was there.

So was Margee's new dog, Gracie (whose carrier Miles took a fancy to).

Miles tested the anti-cruising ordinance on Alki Blvd.

Then he explored the beach.

Welcome, Kati

Miles gave a warm welcome to his cousin Kati, visiting this month from Budapest.

He's now hard at work on his Hungarian lessons.

Miles emphatically expressed his desire for a tricycle.

Parents complied.

Joy ensued.

Museum of Flight

Like Parisians who'd never been to the Louvre, like New Yorkers who'd never been to the Met, the Falvy clan had never paid a visit to Seattle's Museum of Flight.

OK, so it may not be a cultural treasure of the same order of magnitude, but this Boeing-subsidized shrine to aviation was certainly worth a pilgrimage.

With an ample supply of his grandfather's aeronautically-inclined DNA, Miles looked comfortable behind the controls.

Where aging Concords come to park....

But some bodies are never at rest.
