Summer fun all 'round

Whew!  What a summer so far!  Being so busy preparing for Camp Dwight and all, I got off the blog track for a while.  But, I had my camera with me and my many adorable subjects were everywhere. :-)

You never know what you'll find 'round here.  Apparently, CATFISH were the find one day.  Dwight was letting the water naturally flood out of the lower pond into the "draw" (as Paula has named it).  It's that gorgeous stretch of lush green grass that all the RV's and campers fill for camp.  Anyway, the boys were exploring and realized that there were catfish in the waterways!  We found 11 total and put them back in the pond.  Hopefully they'll grow big and we can catch them later on to eat.

Vienna helped me drive the boys around on their catfish adventure. :-)
Best Buddies

Quint - our resident waterer.  He faithfully makes sure the grass is watered, the garden is watered, and the lower park grass is watered. Interestingly enough, he's the one who wants us to build fires in winter, too.

Chance -- always dressing up and playing some grand game of his fantastic imagination!

Hanging out by the pond -- eating FRUIT!

Vienna - the little darling I get to keep playing dress up with :-)

An early morning run with my hard-core sister-in-law and best bud, Naomi.

Getting EGGS! Ty and Quint are the egg hunters.

The 2 little guys - best buds.  Always laughing ...

Cousins and best buds - always laughing, too!

Yum!  Fresh-picked blueberries - thanks to Rachel K and Rachel Z for their picking and thoughtfulness.

Quint riding the zipline during camp - a highlight and worth the wait!

Orin, Chance, and Ty with cousin Barrington before the Camp Dwight fun run.  A total blast!

It's a family fun run ... so the whole family's gotta run, right? :-)  YEAH!!!  Thank you, Chad, for helping us attempt to stay in shape with our 1 run a year. :-)

Special visit from my college friend, fellow choir member, accountability partner, and gopher girl ... Wende Pentz.  I love you, girl!  So fun to meet her whole family and introduce them to our fresh goat milk - which they now LOVE! (can't you tell?)  Go Pentz family! :-)

Kefir popsicles!  The best on a hot sunny afternoon.
