Summer....fast and furious

Its July 4th already!

My mom always said that summer starts with Memorial Day weekend and ends with 4th of July....at least it feels that way, especially here in New England.  We wait and wait and plan and plan. Then summer is upon us and we're very busily - and happily - doing it all!

June was particularly busy with lots of fun activities. 

We finished kindergarten!!!

Then we went up to our beloved Eagle Camp for 5 days of "work week" in which campers help get camp in shape to open up for the season.  We helped wash all the furniture, secure the tents, build a sandbox, and work on some storage lockers. Oh - and Thomas helped drive the tractor.
 
The days were hard work, but relaxing at night by the camp fire while watching the sunset was splendid.
When we arrived home, we had a VERY exciting adventure to Gillette Stadium (aka - home of the Patriots) for...
Thomas has been into monster trucks since about age 2 1/2 so this was an adventure long awaited and anticipated....and it did not dissappoint.
First we attended the Pit Party to meet the drivers!
 
 
Then we tailgated - with friends we literally bumped into.
 
 
then it was on to the show....
 
 
IT WAS AWESOME!!

On our "down days", Thomas can never get enough backyard baseball
 
 
Yesterday we finished up Vacation Bible School and then Thomas and daddy went to the beach from 4 til 8:30pm!!!

We have an ambitious Bucket List again this summer and can't wait for more fun!!

Bring on July and August!
