After a morning of mixing adobe, the last thing we usually want to do after lunch is mix more adobe. But when our three favorite helpers – Addy, Elliot, and Rose – come running up the hill to help, we know that the afternoon will actually turn out to be filled with games and laughter. Over the past few weeks, these guys have helped make mixing adobe so much more bearable and we’ve loved getting to know them. Here’s a little bit about them so you can get to know them too!

Addy, Elliott, and Rose come to the biostation every summer with their parents (Jason and Kim), but this past year, they decided to stay up here for the whole year!
