Cassi has a friend in Spokane who is opening a new little gift shoppe called, As the Crow Flies. Cassi and I have been making the Nikki Tote Bags that I made for my etsy shop. Her friend loves them and wanted to buy 10 to put in her shop! So Cassi and I each made five and our bags are actually in a store to be sold at the grand opening on Tuesday! If you're in Spokane, you should check it out. It looks like a darling little shop.

Madeline has showed a lot of interest in the harp. She listens quietly during lessons, then later will "try out" the things she heard on my harp. I wish I had a small one for her to learn on. I've started teaching her piano and she gets so excited to practice and for her lessons. I need to take advantage while she's excited about it. I think I'll keep my eyes out on craigslist for a little harp...just incase somebody posts it at a ridiculously low price. :)

We finally found a free weekend to go camping. It is a A LOT of work, especially with kids. Mom - how did you do it all those years with 7 kids?! But we had so much fun and are itching to do it again before it gets too hot and humid here. Matt inherited a dutch oven from his great grandma. Anybody have any favortie recipes? My friend made a delicious peach and blueberry cobbler in it. I want to start experimenting.
Our campsite overlooked the lake. Matt jumped in before bed that night. :)
Madeline's favorite part was the giant marshamallows we got to toast
Helping Daddy get everything situated
Charlie was all about the Pirate Booty
Out sweet set up
We had a looong walk to and from our car - and bathrooms. Madeline got to experience going in the woods. The first time went well. the second time was a disaster! :) But I was proud she did it. She is all about being clean and neat.
