Summer hits

So, here are the pictures from our trip to the copper mine.  We also had a fun week going to the little splash park at a nearby town, eating lots of cheetos there (Macy didn't really want to play in the water), and also a family adventure picnic and mini-hike to Bridal Veil Falls.  The falls were gorgeous, the mountains were breathtaking, especially with the amount of snow still on top and everything so green, but the river within view of the trail was crazy wild.  Don't worry mom, we didn't get close even once and we didn't even let the kids climb over the bridge to see it.
Leslie is almost done with her first time of year-round school, for a few weeks at least!  It really hasn't been that bad except lately it is almost too hot for her to walk or ride her bike (supposedly ride, she pushes it up hill a large chunk of the way).  She comes home totally flushed and sweaty so I told her I would pick her up this week.

I was also extremely excited to have our first meeting of my new book club (Mark is calling it the Book Snoots) since there wasn't one in this neighborhood already.  We are going to try to tackle some more challenging and discussion-worthy books.  Any suggestions?  This month is David McCullough's 1776, one many people own but haven't actually read.  Should be good for the 4th of July!  It was fun to get to plan out the next few months as well, including Silas Marner by George Eliot.  Another one I've never actually picked up but should have.
