Summer time fun!

We have been having so much fun this summer!  We have been spending time with family, going on road trips and hanging out as a family.  We are loving it!

We got back from our vacation about a week ago and I hit the ground running.  Butterfly had swimming lessons and Hubby and I scheduled a date weekend.  We threw some a quick trip to visit some extended family in there and had ourselves a GREAT weekend.

That brings us to this week.  We are in the second (and final) week of swimming lessons for Butterfly and Bee and Bubby are heading to Mimi's on Wednesday.  Butterfly and I will be taking Dragonfly to visit Nana (my grandma!) then as well.  We planned an afternoon full of Skip-Bo.  Then on Thursday we are heading to visit my Cousin in Law (that is a term right?  LOL!) for the afternoon.

We are hoping that the sweet corn my father in law planted will hold out until we are done with the busyness that is ahead of us this week.  When the sweet corn is ready we will pack everyone up and head over there so we can pick it and get it in the freezer so we can prepare ourselves for winter.

Our garden has done pretty well.  We have increased the garden from 4 raised beds to 6 raised beds.  We think the deer got the best of our "salad" garden, which was planted with peas, green beans, two kinds of lettuce, and carrots.  However, our potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, asparagus and kohlrabi have all done really well.  We didn't get to harvest the asparagus this year but we can see it will be bringing us lots of yumminess next year.

Hope you all are having a fantastic summer.  I will be doing a post of just some of our summer pictures in the coming days.
