Last day of school for this one was in June, and lots of amazing camp experiences since! June had a week of nature camp, followed by a week of zoo camp, then another week at nature camp and then a short holiday week at sports camp. We’ve had some challenging transitions, but all in all I think he’s enjoying the new experiences!

All those camps means a lot of time in the car (since of course none of them are close to our house!). That means a LOT of books have been read already this summer. Current favorites are the How to Train Your Dragon series (he’s on book 11!) and Spirit Animals series (book 2!).

Speaking of How to Train Your Dragon we went to see the sequel in June! BEST. SEQUEL. EVER. Definitely a favorite!!

She slept A LOT. And destroyed things in our backyard. Only one pepper plant (including like 6 baby chile peppers) has been lost so far in her destruction. Still a little afraid to think of where those hot peppers went? The best part is if you google how to keep dogs out of gardens everyone recommends chile peppers. Someone forgot to tell Daisy that dogs don't like peppers!

We enjoyed some radishes and our first Roma tomato in June, but it’s pretty obvious that July will bring a big harvest!

We went to the Bacon Festival in Keystone this month. It was pretty crazy, but pretty awesome. Favorites were the big game sliders, bacon cinnamon roll, and bacon mac & cheese. Logan ate only one bacon item, the party pooper. But he did love hanging out on the buffalo statue!

We also had some super tasty meals while out and about at some new and old favorites: Chicago Style Beef and Dogs, Sushi Den, Maria Empanada, and Three Margaritas.
