July 365

Keeping it simple this month.  It's all about the photos.. and not much commentary because it's been a busy one! 

Heading home from vacation.  Saying good bye to our favorite horse.
Little hoodlums working on their lemonade stand signs.  They worked so hard!!
Catching the neighbor's fireworks. 
Carrying on the celebration an extra day for the fun of it.  Ha!
Little gift from my girl. 
Nothing to photograph... LOL
One pendant light up... one to go.
Sunset, after church... that feeling when you don't want to go home, you just want to crank up the tunes and drive....
Laundry on the line... my favorite summer scent.
My son found this old wooden oar at the Re-Store for $3.00.  Score!  chippy blue paint wasn't quite enough for me... so I added some weathered racing stripes and a number just like the old ones had!  Perfection.
My son's favorite fruit.
I have now joined the masses with the internet in my pocket.  But my man keeps stealing it. Also... I'm completely hooked and addicted to Instagram.  (You can find and follow me at Lemonademakinmama.)
Hiking... heading to the trailhead with such gorgeous glacier-fed waters of the greenest color.  Lovely.
A day of bittersweet reflection.

Bills.  Ugh.

Construction begins!
Taking a break from the dust and chaos to whip up a cake for my hoodlums.  (Therapy in baking.)
Free lensing.  So fun! I feel artsy.  LOL
Last day of camp... POURING rain... bring on the mud. 
Gorgeous eyes....
Looking at him at breakfast, laughing at his daddy... I had to snap this.  SO cute.
 Finally back into the swing of swim lessons. 
 Faces got wet.  Victory!!
 Dinner.  Yum!
 My garden is overflowing. I suppose there are worse problems to have.
Ah sweet dried lavender... making sachets for our drawers.
 Dinner.  My all time fave sandwich- a veggie sandwich.  So yummy.  Laughing cow cheese wedge on toasted GF bread, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados, lettuce, red onion and salt and pepper.
My hero.  The boy who goes into my hydrangea bushes and kills the spiders as he cuts them for me.
 Bringing in the harvest...
And that's it for July!  Looking forward to August.  And now you're next sweet friends... I'd love to have you link up if you want, with one (or many) July photos! No rules, just join up for fun!
