Summer Miscellany

Staying cool at forest school

Red, white, blue

Better late than never with the red, white and blue!

Watching fireworks on the 4th

Four!

hahaha

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!

Eye Spy Summer!

Eye spy

The eyeball is by far the most popular sculpture at Laumeier

Eye see you!

The Spy was not too enthused to take a trip to Laumeier Sculpture Park, and he had never even been before!

And I quote:

“I’d rather see animals than sculptures made by hippies.”

Bahahahahah

But of course he enjoyed the visit, even choosing his favorite sculpture:

This one was my favorite of the day

This one is a preview of a deer exhibit coming in August (and see what I did there with the perspective?)

The gallery is very cool

Hair sculpture! (too much of a stretch?)

Spy Garden Sculpture! (I rebuilt the teepee)

Dill and garlic in the foreground; and lots of it

The tomatoes are looking very healthy (foreground)

Scapes already!

And it wouldn’t be memorial day weekend without water, right?!

Wooo summer!

Baby earned her swim band by swimming 25 METERS all by herself!!! Now she can go on the waterslides!!! yeah!

He is loving his new team and has had A LOT of games!!

This is where we hiked a few weeks ago, now it is so flooded!

Walking (and running) along the levee

Life moves fast and if you don’t take time to enjoy the flora and fauna you might Egret it!
