First Tastes of Summer…

Summer is in the Air, and we are loving it!

This past weekend we had our first campfire…


Which of course leads to our first smores…


Our first ice cream cones…

Our first evening firefly catch…


And we even broke in the brand new rope swing in our backyard…


Of course, Mom and Dad needed to show them how it was done…

And in case you are wondering where Ben is in all of this, I am holding him most of the time.  Every time I put him down he eats something off the ground, and then promptly chokes on it and throws it up.  I mean come on boy…really?!!  Every little thing must go in his mouth!  Yuk.

Hope you are enjoying the first tastes of Summer as much as we are (just not as literally as Ben is – ha!)!

 Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    LOL at Ben. My little Olivia likes to drop on all fours and try lick bugs, I have to watch her like a hawk. She’s like nineteen months old and can open doors and containers and all sorts of obnoxious things, but I still have to watch and make sure she isn’t crawling around licking bugs. Awesome.
