We have about an acre of land that we’ve let go to the weeds and to the blackberry bushes. My husband cut a path through it which lead to some exploring. Thankfully we didn’t notice the bees swarming until the kids were ready go back to the house.

long summer days


One thing the Northwest summers make up for that they lack in winter is the LONG summer days. The sun stays out well past bedtime. To say I’m excited about¬†these nights with my family is an understatement. We got a taste of these nights last night. The kids were playing with this huge box inside…the phrase “take it outside” has now entered back into our vocabulary. It seems as though time gets lost on nights like this and I’m ok with that. ¬†Add in some good friends, more family, campfires, ‘smores and the warmth and I may never actually be in my house. What about you? What are you looking forward to this summer?
