So here is a random collection of pictures from the last month to show what we've been up to.
We spent a weekend in Central Pennsylvania at the Black Moshannon State Park. We were so glad we had picked Cabin #14 with it's wide porch and fireplace. We were able to cook most of our meals over the fire despite the rainy weekend.
The rain halted occasionally and searching for a geo-cache is a great way to burn off energy...
And discover new places like this stream which Ed claims in the prettiest creek in Pennsylvania.
In the wee hours of the morning, we were woken by a crash when a big black creature dumped out the carefully packed storage tub and licked the cake crumbs out of the dutch oven. The bear escaped before we could wake the children, much to their disappointment.
We enjoyed several other day trips such as Memorial Day visiting some historical sites.
And a lovely Sunday evening hike on the Applachian Trail.
And then there is the imaginations of children who find adventures in their own backyard.
But it isn't all play.
We've picked over 60 quarts of strawberries from our patch. We are endulging in every kind of strawberry treat - from strawberry pie, pretzel dessert, icecream, and shortcake. All the rain has hurt the berries some but there is still many unripe berries.
I didn't plant peas this year but picked at a neighboring pick-you-own patch. They even shelled them for me!
But sweetest of all is our smiley marshmallow. Five months old and such a joy bringer.
How is your June?
