Avoiding the heat
Dominique already took a bite from this 4 legged wonder grown in the garden. We are still enjoying garden produce and so thankful for that little plot of land and it saving us on groceries, trips to Regina and for tasting so much better than what they want me to pay for in the store. We've also been able to share some with neighbors, but we haven't had tons of excess since we planted a ton and ton of variety in just little rows. Another advantage to not having too much of anything at anytime is that there seems to be always something ready. At first it was beans and radishes, now we are getting zuchini and cucumbers, lettuce still and tomatoes.
Another theme to our summer has been tent/fort building. It seems like every few days the kids find new materials to create utter mayhem in that they then want to sleep in. This time they each had a "tent" in Dominique's room.
This last couple of weeks have been really fun as people in the Fort with kids have started to post their plans and invite others to join in. We got to go to the pool and playground in Indian head with our cousin Arwen. There was a spray park, but we didn't go to that part.
And the other day, we play mini golf, then went to the beach and got to go on a boat and tubing! Ivan also got to drive the boat. So thankful for friends and excursions like these!
