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

Another

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).

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

Totally cool!

In Onondaga Cave

The one rock you are allowed to touch in the cave

These drip down and form…

These

Cave Ceiling

This was the coolest “room” of the cave

Onondaga cave is just as impressive as Meramec Caverns and as a bonus it is within a state park so there are other things to do there.

Such as go for a swim in the Meramec River!

There were tons of these along the river’s edge

Back in the garden, things are pretty neglected right now (it is so hot! and soooo much school work!) but there are still a few nice sights and things.

Blackberries

Dill and in the background is a flower called “candytuft”

Garlic (one bulb harvested anyways); this one with the root bit torn off when I dug it up)

Zinnias of all different colors are popping up

This hardy hibiscus is right in the center of the garden

Dragon’s Eggs (cucumbers)

I must be on to something, right?! ahaha

Scorched love in a mist seed pods

Chicken snack!

The butterflies mob the mimosa trees all day

Most of the sunflowers are quite short

Happy summer!

Spring Break 2017

Butkus hopping around the garden on St. Patrick’s Day

Nana and Pop visited this past week and the kids had a wonderful time with them for their spring break; it was a low key week of cold St. Louis weather capped off with a beautifully mild St. Patty’s day!

Nana taking pictures of…

the beautiful Bradford pear blooms…

Like snow!

And then we did get snow!

These are those same white-flowered type of trees (Bradford pear) but after the cold weather

Nana bowling

For the record, I beat everyone in bowling. Haha

Tiny wildflowers

Enjoying the view

Aunt Spy also came up for a visit!
