August Already?

Where does the time go? The summer is already half over, the days are getting shorter, and the peas are coming to an end in my garden. I did harvest some pretty amazing magic purple beans that turn into green beans when you cook them - the kids should get a kick out of those! I even found a few edible strawberries in the patch (they haven't been doing well - this being their first year and all). Still to come: tomatoes and possibly corn - though the stalks look a little too thin to hold any!
As for family outings, we have mainly stayed in the neighborhood, but we did venture out on one camping trip - in Nana's motorhome! We had a great time and are even considering braving camping in a tent with two toddlers in tow...well, we'll see! We also spent a couple weeks at the pool - both kids loved their swimming lessons and can't wait to go back.
