It was a good month, I'd say.  We "camped" in my in-laws' yard and lit a bonfire while we watched fireworks over the lake, but then a huge lightning storm came and scared us out of the tent.  We had some fun trips to Walden Pond, Maine, Rhode Island, Western Massachusetts, New Hampshire, & New York for hiking, beaching, mini-golfing, canoeing and city strolling. Ate some yummy veggies harvested from our garden, created some new recipes, and made a new (up-cycled) dress for kiddo!  I made it from an old shirt of mine that a friend gave me, which she bought used as well.  Now kiddo is enjoying something that was well-used and well-loved beforehand.  I look forward to up-cycling more clothes for her soon~  Making our used clothing last longer is always a great way to save some dough for future exploring trips!  Adventure on dudes!  :)
