It’s summertime! Which means it has been awhile since I blogged.
A long while. Let’s not get any more specific than that. I feel guilty enough already!
While I would still like to- and probably will- let you in on some fun from the festivals, I thought you might like to know what we have been doing the last couple (few? Many?) weeks.
Aside from working on the corn maze I mean (Separate post on that little detail coming soon).
We finished a long summer u-pick season on July 26th and sent the last blueberries home with some happy customers.
We spent some time hanging out at grandma and papa’s pool. SPLASH!
We have been loving on the newest little farmgirl- as often as possible!
She is adorable, and cute, and sweet and always and lovable… you get the idea!
We celebrated Brian’s graduation from high school. He got a diploma from our school in Maine (yes, the state). We have never actually been there, if you are wondering.
And we had the fair.
Our little local fair probably isn’t much to write home about, but it has been a summer tradition since I was 9 and started 4-H. That was awhile ago.
This summer was Brian’s last year in 4-H and his last time to show at the fair.
He showed both a pig and a beef steer this year so he had quite a bit of preparation into his projects, as well a lot of hours helping prep the fairgrounds.
But I think it was worth it! Suffice to say that he had a great last year… Pretty much hauling home every award he was eligible to win!
A great week at the fair made it a little difficult to get away on vacation, but we finally made it on our annual trip to the San Juan Islands.
Where we did exactly NOTHING the entire week.
Except eat. And read. And swim.
And lay on the beach. And Kayak.
And take the kids to make pottery (yes, me too, I’m still a kid… at heart!).
Ok, so we did a few things. But not much. When it is your only vacation for the entire summer, you make the most of it!
On the way home we made some family memories on someone else’s farm!
Funny, I know, but we don’t have time to make many memories at our own farm. And we don’t grow strawberries (yet!) so we had to stop and pick some. Yummy!
And now we’re home, and it’s still summertime in all it’s warm wonderfulness… and we are loving it!
What are you loving about your summer?
