The dog days of summer have come and gone, but they sure were fun!!! Here's some highlights from our summer...
While Bethany was at camp, we went to the Audubon Zoo one night...lots of fun! It was the members only night and they fed the alligators for us...which was the best part of the trip, of course!!!
The trip to the zoo wouldn't be the same without doing our two favorites:
RIDING THE CAROUSEL~
POSING BY THE WILD CREATURES~
Of course when Bethany returned home from GIRLS CAMP, she told us that she'd had a crazy good time! :)
A couple of weeks later, we joined up with some other families in the ward to do some blueberry picking!
We got there super early so we could beat the heat of the day! Unfortunately, it was already hot and humid when we got started.
At first we had a lot of fun picking!
As the time went by and the buckets filled up it got "DRIPPING HOT!!!" as Thomas called it!!! Even sitting in the shade, it was miserable...
It's now November...and Summer is LONG GONE. I saw my breath Friday morning while I took the garbage can out to the road and we had frost on the grass Saturday morning...not sure I'm ready for the cold...sometimes I think I'd like to go back to those "DRIPPING HOT" days.
***SORRY FOR THE LACK OF POSTS THE LAST LITTLE WHILE!!!***
Life in our house has been a little busier on Sundays. Tonight, I took advantage of the end of DAY LIGHT SAVINGS!! The kids were so ready for bed before 8!!! I didn't tell them how late it was. Only Aimee figured it out when she looked at her clock and it was only 7:50!! Everyone was sound asleep by 8:45~ a near MIRACLE in our house!! :)
Maybe I can get caught up now! :)
