August Highlights 2017

A trip to North Carolina, back to school, a birthday, football, an eclipse: why not jam it all into one post?!

Into the smokey mountains

And note: no ipads/phones/screens of any kind on the 10 hour drive; it is still possible for kids to be bored on road trips. haha Staring out the window is underrated, right?!

Duck in Montreat, NC

Farewell to camp! The Spy enjoyed a whole month there this summer.

I painted this with my camp bestie in 1999! (its the floor of a girls’ cabin)

We enjoyed a misty hike

One little pop of color!

Likin this lichen

Almost there!

We tried to do this hike a few years ago but didn’t make it to the falls (the whole thing was straight uphill) it took us nearly 3 hours to get up to the falls.

Which were somewhat underwhelming but I’m never going to complain about a hike/nature!

Fuzzy mushroom

We also took a little walk around Asheville (we all much preferred the woods).

Street bubble

Once home…

Time to start school! (6th grade!!)

And kindergarten!

Then,

Happy Birthday!

She got a bunny leash hahahahahahah

VERY ENTERTAINING

Show Rabbit

And here comes the next victim

And on to…

Football!

He dragged this kid along 15 more yards into the endzone!!

Very hot!

And today we saw the solar eclipse which was very cool.

Totally cool!

    Great photos! A packed month, for sure. Happy Birthday to ‘Zilla! Wow, kindergarten already and 6th for Spy. Yikes!
    LOVE the bunny harness, so cute! No more runaways. ;)
    Cool that she got a Venus fly trap, too. A perfect gift for this one. ;)
    You were lucky to be in the path of totality – were the kids impressed by the eclipse?
