DSC02797Okay, okay.  I know that there is another week of official summer and then we in the lovely Pacific Northwest usually have another several weeks of blue skies before the rain starts.  But- I’ve been absent for so long that I feel like I should start the summer wrap-up now since I’ve been busy the last 2 months.

Let’s begin.

We went on Baby’s First Camping Trip and it was a ton of fun and way easier than I thought camping with sesame would be.  We were at the beautiful Lake Selmac in southern Oregon.

Sesame had her first encounter with blackberries and they turned her into a blackberry monster!

Mike and I picked a ton of fruit (57 pounds of peaches alone!) while sesame just ate the berries and got good and dirty.  We did a ton of jam-making, canning and freezing.  Come on over in February and we’ll serve you some delicious peach pie!

I entered some knitting in the state fair and everything got a ribbon! The empty space on the bottom right should have a picture of this cardigan (it got 3rd) but somehow it didn’t make it onto flickr.

We went on camping trip #2 and braved a cold, drizzly weekend at Cape Lookout with 5 other families and 7 kids.
