MeMoRiAl DaY

So I realized the other day that I didn't blog about our annual trip to Brookings (back in May).
Talk about disappointed. So here it is.
 We roasted peeps for the first time. T.A.S.T.Y.
 We spend time down at Harris Beach.
 My squirrel whisperer.

 Let me explain...
 During Memorial Day weekend, there is the Azalea Festival.
With every festival, there is a parade.

 Last year we saw that there was a slug race.
We participated this year.
 Meet: Han Solo Foot. :)
 Ice cream from Slugs 'n Stones 'n Ice Cream Cones.
 Let the race begin! First slug that made it from out of the bag and onto the plywood won.
Han Solo Foot didn't win but he did his best.
 Azalea Park

 Mini hike

 Another mini hike to Thunder Rock Cove

 This was the first year we actually took a picture with the sign.
We had a great vaca to Brookings. Until next Memorial Day...

CrAwDaD cOoKoUt

We had our ward Crawdad Cookout.
Organized by N. 
Grab some nets and get catchin'. They are quick little buggers.
 A few of my wonderful primary kids.

 All set up at camp.
 A few girls created a fairy fort. How cute!
 You can't camp without a fire.

 You also can't go camping without Dt Mtn Dew. 
 Chowin' down!

 Eat up!

The month of July brought a 30 Day Photography Challenge.
Now granted this challenge is to improve one's photo taking skills.
This is not meant for a camera phone, but none the less.
The only day that doesn't have a photo was July 31.
Start in the upper left corner. Left to right. Row by row.
