We have been busy already in this first official month of summer.  It hardly seems like July 6th, anyway. . . so here’s a bit of an update for the past few months.

Nicolas’ sister Abby and her husband purchased a house last summer, so this summer she and I took advantage of the garden plot and with a little work planted green beans, lettuce, carrots, zucchini, onions and cucumber by seeds and a few tomato plants, pepper plants, and basil

I need to take some new pictures most everything has grown, except for the beans which were attached by the bunnies until Abby and Jason put up another fence to keep them out.  We have harvested lettuce and basil.  YUM!!

Nick and I have also been able to go hiking and camping (only 1 night) which we love to do and will do more of.  Nick is photographing a wedding in September so we did engagement photos.  It was fun to get to know the couple.  We have been to Kansas a couple of times for family things and Nicolas loves to get great shots of barns etc.  Oh yea, and I was supposed to have LASIK, which is now postponed to next week.  We were also helping cook tons of fun with our church to serve downtown to support the local homeless shelters.
