While on break...

What have we been up to while I was on my blogging break??? Hmmm, actually...We have drawn a lot of pictures while wearing 3-D glasses and funny hats... We have eaten cereal off the floor because it's just better that way...
We have ridden buck'n horses...
We have watched our garden full of green beans, purple hull peas, squash, cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, cantaloupe, okra, water melon, and tomatoes grow large and full...
We have started the harvesting of the squash
(this is often a daily task-our first pick was 7 huge squash)... We have watched Little Bit enjoy his first year to actually pick the veggies from our garden
(he was a bit too young to enjoy the whole process last year)...

We have cooked our first summer dish from the garden-
a family recipe for fresh squash fritters...

We (actually my adorable husband and the K-Man) have been on a backyard camp-out...
Where sleeping in a tent was a must, AND...
Going on a frog hunt to catch 19 frogs was the highlight of the night!

REALLY...Who has time to BLOG?!?


* Note about the frog hunt... No frogs were hurt on this little adventure in our backyard! However, there was one Momma who was a bit nauseous at the sight of them!

How on earth did your oldest catch 19 frogs with a cast on his leg? Daddy probably got to help some, too. Looks like fun.
