what i did on my summer vacation

Summer 'O8 photo highlights! We went camping a couple of times with friends of Will's. The campground is perfect for us. It's only a little more than an hour out of town, and there is plenty of hiking, fishing, and forest to explore...These are just four of about 400 pictures that I took!

Seems like Wednesday rolled around really often -- that's our day to pick up CSA veggies. I wasn't organized enough to use and store nearly as many of them as I should have (I gave a bunch away, and ended up throwing some out when I didn't use it fast enough) but here's some gorgeous spinach that I got into the freezer in time.

Will and I did the Great Urban Race with my sister and her boyfriend. Part costume contest, part scavenger hunt, part photography contest, part foot race, this was really fun, despite the fact that we all ended up with bloody feet. We figured that we probably walked/ran at least 20 miles over the course of 4 1/2 hours. We didn't even come close to winning, but we've got some strategy planned for next year...

yeah, yeah

So much for blogging every day in July, eh? I was a little busy...hanging out at the pool, moving Will and kids into our house and out of his, getting his house rented, figuring out what to do with all the stuff, having a HUGE yard sale, hanging out at the pool, putting a contract on a house, running a couple of races, hanging out at the pool, playing at the river, camping, going on picnics, watching bat rush hour outside our house, hanging out at the pool...Over Labor Day weekend, I was going to do a whole "what I did over my summer vacation" post, but, well, you can see how well that worked out. I'm going to put up some photos of highlights, call it good, and move on from here.
