Our Week in Review:

Summer Vacation Rages On!

In the spirit of trying to get everything from our Summer Bucket List accomplished, we were busy this week! I think we even made some Miner adjustments to the list and added a couple adventures. 

We went to Howe Caverns on Monday.  At the beginning of the tour they had this mechanical guy (Lester Howe) telling us about the caverns.  He was kind of creepy, so it was nice to see the TV on the wall light up with these cute animations.

Do you know the difference between stalagtites and stalagmites?  I didn't either. Stalagtites are on the ceiling (hold tight to the ceiling) and stalagmites are on the floor (watch out, you might trip on them).  The active stalagtite is always on the ceiling above the stalagmite.

It seems that I rarely get a picture of me and the hubs and wouldn't you know it, B. hijacked it!

The Turtle.
He is done growing as his water source has been cut off.
He must be really cranky stuck there with no water!

Looks like something out of "Aliens".

On Wednesday we took our canoe to the lake. We went down a canal at the bottom of Tongue Mountain that opens up into the lake. What a glorious day! We couldn't have asked for better weather.  The only thing that could have made it perfect was if the boys sat still and didn't rock the boat!

Traffic Jam!

To finish off the week, we had a pizza making party and painted some bird houses. 

One last thing...I couldn't resist a sneak peak of our cutie project.

How are you doing with your summer bucket list?

Happy Adventures!
