Cousins Week continued...

As we were driving down into the canyon, one of the kids spotted this huge Elk.  We pulled over and watched and discovered a couple more right by it.  I thought it was the coolest things until we drove a little further and discovered it was an Elk farm.  :(  Not quite the same as seeing an Elk this large in the wild...oh well.

Summer Bucket List...Cousins Week!!!

We look forward to cousins week every summer!  It is such a fun way to get to know my nieces/nephews better!  My sister brought her 3 oldest for the week.  I thought we'd do a little craft with her youngest two since they didn't get to stay.


We  doubled the size of our garden this year.  We wanted to give an area to Jeff's brothers family to garden, but my sister-in-law was due with her 5th baby at the end of July and it didn't work out that way.  Still, Jeff filled up the extra space happily.  He really enjoys gardening and even helped me can a bunch of pickles, beets and salsa this year.

Summer Bucket List...Nature Scavenger Hunt

These 3 warriors needed more training. They were good fighters, skilled in the kicking and punching areas, but wanted to tap into their Ninja Powers more.
They found sensei Jeff. Sensei Jeff is thrilled to have his picture taken.
After just 5 short minutes with sensei Jeff, the 3 warriors were taught how to successfully break a dorito chip with just their eyes.
