July Photos of the Month

I'm late! I'm late!
As usual. 
Wow, July has been a busy month for us. 
3 camping trips and numerous other activities plus 3 birthdays all crammed into it. 
Hold on, here we go! 

For the 4th of July weekend we went up near Moon Lake for a camping trip. We had a great time and there were lots of kids and friends that went up. We played in the lake and went on a few 4 wheeler rides, we found a baby snake to play with, and in general we got some R&R!  

 We also went to Youth Camp and had a great time!  Again we were at Moon Lake but this time we were in the campground.  Elevation....8,100 ft. So much fun and such wonderful kids!!!

Elyssa's art this month.

 This horse sold at the family reunion auction for $40   

 She created this little baby fox for a baby shower gift. Ink and watercolor.

 Then she made a baby raccoon to match and she was working on a baby skunk as well. 

Our third trip was at Palisade State Park. It is one of my most favorite campgrounds. We have come here nearly every year for the last 20 years.  
We came here for Justin's annual family reunion. 
I also hosted my first ever baby shower at a campground. That was fun!  Logistically we had to be very creative and also keep it somewhat low key. But it was a great success. 

Lastly a picture of Japanese style Cheesecake. 
It was so yummy and light. I fell in love! I will never go back to the old fashioned cheese cake. 
We made this one and savored it to the last bite.
