a short synopsis of what we have been doing this summer...

This is of course exempting SWIMMING, which we seem to to every day... Memorial Day we did a spontaneous camping trip to Hegler's Creek. The kids LOVED every single second of it. Blue and I loved it too, although we were tempted to leave those 2 children in the woods and just leave because they were SO HYPER the whole time.

I've never heard the kids laugh so deeply as they did on Blue's forest made tree swing. I don't think that tree will ever recover. But it will be eaten by bark beetles soon anyway, right? Just kidding. It actually looks like AZ is getting some serious rain again....
Father's day was great. We made blue this cookie cake. All I could do to support his "diet" was sub oil for applesauce. He loved it though...loved it. I think that is a great effect of cooking for a dieter - they have heightened taste bud enjoyment for any old thing you make them! We also surprised Blue with a backyard swing so he can sit and enjoy the fruit of his labors out there. I thought it would be a nice change from a tool that just gives him more work to do (don't get me wrong - I still have a list for him).

Looks like you guys have been doing a lot of fun things! We used to do the same thing with the trees when we went camping as a kid, except we called it the buckin branco, it is a memory I'll never forget, and one I'm sure will stick with your kids too! I hope the rest of your summer is a fun one!
