camping out

This weekend we went camping with the boys for the first time, us and some good friends of ours. I was beyond thrilled that they all loved it so much, they were totally at home in the woods & played, played, played all weekend. Even sleeping in the tent was a big adventure to them. J. even cried, literally sobbed, when we got home. All he wanted was to be back in the woods with his friends.

Busy creating a series of buildings. We had to move the blocks up onto the porch table after Chase the dog kept knocking them down with his tail.

Even in the middle of summer baking continues. Here are the boys 'helping' me make cheesy breadsticks. After a while it was just easier to break the dough in half, keep my half to make the breadsticks & let them go to town with their half of the dough.
Good times.

Bringing the outside in

We keep our birdfeeders in the back garden filled with black sunflower seeds. Not only are they (supposedly) the ultimate bird snack, a lot of those seeds have fallen to the ground & look at the results.
