So it is nearly October. Wow - I definitely took a longer sabbatical from blogging than I intended. There are no excuses. No reasons, other than I was in a blogging rut and the thought of trying to post all the posts I wanted to do scared me. Simple really.
So here is a recap of our Summer (part of it, anyway.)
To start off our summer, Jake went to China (you can find his posts about this here.) While he was gone the girls and I spent time in Idaho visiting both my parents and Jake's.
We went to Mesa Falls with my parents one Sunday.
Don't mind my dad - this is how he smiles.
Then the girls and I went to Jake's parents cabin for awhile. It was cold and springtime there still. But we had fun. You can read more of our time there on this post.
The girls also did swimming lessons. Punkin #1 did 3 sessions and Cupcake did 2. Next year we are not going to do so many. I was exhausted of swimming lessons by the time summer was over.
This bike ride was after Jake got home. I spent the whole bike ride bringing up the rear. My job was to push my bike, take pictures, and push Helen's trike with my foot. Norah wasn't too thrilled with her first ride in the trailer either. The last part of it, Helen's trike was hanging on my bike and she was walking. I was very glad to get home after this ride.
And Cupcake did eventually fall asleep.
Then we went back to the cabin for a Jake's extended family reunion. Canoeing was a highlight.
I promise I won't be away for so long this next time. I also have a slew of food/recipe posts to do. So check back. These are good.
