Summer at Its Best

Dang dang darn - I had this big goal to post more in June and actually surpass my monthly average of four posts and instead of surpassing I only posted three times!  Boo!  But I guess all I can do is recommit (again) to find more writing time.  I guess it's a good sign of summer if you can't find time to write about all you are doing - a comment I feel I must have made before.  I also take it as a good sign that the fliers adorning my fridge, each announcing a movie theater's summer schedule of morning movies for a dollar, are all sitting untouched and unused.  We have been too busy to go to any of the movies I thought would help me fill up the empty summer days!  Turns out none of them have been empty.  It takes me a couple of weeks each year but I eventually seem to adjust to the schedule of crazy every day.  We're doing it!

One adventure I have been meaning to record is our trip to our friend's cabin.  It isn't always easy finding a family you love dearly enough to actually travel with - I'm sure there are many families with whom we would travel well but actually getting out and doing it is another thing.  So our good friends invited us to spend the first weekend of summer at their cabin up Hobble Creek Canyon and it was a great way to kick off the summer.  Walks, card games, watercolors (boy it's been a while since I have picked up a brush!), books, poetry, starry nights, s'mores, all the good cabiny stuff.

An Elk Leg.  Gross. 

Bundle got very good at scaling this rope ladder - it took my breath away to watch her climb it because it's very high up.  I could only watch her do it once.

On a Sunday morning hike we found a lovely outdoor spa

Best picture ever.
