I am running out of summer steam, folks. All that wonderful summer energy I had earlier this summer is just about all gone.


But we are trying to sneak in a few more fun summer activities before preschool routines start back up again after Labor Day.

One of our favorite activities this summer has been picking up our CSA veggie bag at the HUB Farm. We’ve had such a fun time walking down the path, checking on the ducks and chickens, looking at the veggies and saying hi to the farmers. This week was our last trip for the summer and we soaked it all up!

Goodbye HUB Farm! Until next year!

Friends, the highlight of the last few weeks was finding the most delicious foods that were simple and easy and OH SO filling!

Is there anything better than fresh summer fruit and yogurt? It’s one of my favorites!

And if you want a meal that fills you up and lasts a surprisingly long time, then you need to toast up some Ezekial bread, slap on some almond butter, and sprinkle on some seeds, cacao nibs and berries. SO GOOD!

We had a spontaneous outside moment yesterday. The weather was beautiful! So I set up a quick mud/washing station. I also threw in some backyard rocks, some jewels and pretend pirate coins.

Elizabeth was more than happy to dig in the mud. She found all the treasures and brought them over to the water table.

William stuck with the water table. It’s clean. He’s really into saying “Eeeewwwww” so for him, soapy water was ideal.

And then, they got clever and started “painting” the deck with wet cloths. Genius, kids! Genius!

Elizabeth has high adventure with her Daddy this weekend! And it all kicked off last night! She went to the Durham Bulls baseball game last night and had a blast! She’s been looking forward to this for weeks. And this weekend she’s going backpacking/camping with friends. My husband has never backpacked OR camped before, and he’s gone all in. So many trips to REI! HA! But they’re going to have a fun time!

  And now, it’s time to link up your posts! Can’t wait to cruise around and see what you all have been blogging about!

    Oh, you belong to a CSA!! I did for years and loved it, but then between the kid’s activities and added responsibilities taking care of my Dad, I just couldn’t manage getting over there to pick up the order (plus, they had a lot of you pick). Just this year a neighbor started acting as a pick-up location again so I’m going to join a winter share. I’m so excited!!
