Soaking up the summer

We only have about two weeks left of summer vacation, but we are determined to make the most of it.  One day, we decided to take a little nature walk.  The kids were equipped with little "treasure bags" that they could fill up along the way.   Photobucket

Bella even came prepared with her magnifying glass.

Curtis greatly appreciated the "helicopters".  He filled his bag with a lot of them.

Then we came back for popsicles under our makeshift backyard tent.

Bella made a "fire" out of some rocks and buckets.  And then they "roasted s'mores".  Graydon stayed in the tent.  I don't think he was feeling too well this day.

We never fear around here because our house is home to TWO superheroes!

They take their job very seriously.

Yes, we are very safe.

Here's some cell phone pics from our past week:

Bella won the jackpot at a birthday party:  220 tickets!  The excited look on her face as those tickets started pouring out of the machine was priceless!

Family outing to the Camden Riversharks (our local minor league team) game.

Bella got her school papers on Saturday and found out her who first grade teacher will be.  Can't believe it's back-to-school time!  But we still have two weeks of summer fun to squeeze in, and I'm grateful for that!
