Our basil did so fantastic! Wahoo. Over 50 cups worth. (We're proud of our basil because it's pretty much all we can be proud of. . .except for Miles' spaghetti squash. But we're still holding out hope. . .)
Such cute sisters! Emmy requested that Ben take a picture and I just adore it.
The backyard camp-out that was and wasn't. I had decided it would be fun for the boys to have a "before-school" camp-out in the backyard. They were all for it (and Emmy was bummed, of course. But in a year or 2 she'll have her turn as well)! Here is there cozy little area in the back.
However, by about 10pm the lightning was crazy - huge blankets of lightning, plus streaks. So that was a little concerning to me. Also, it started raining - and Ben knew they couldn't be wet all night. . . so we moved them back inside. But they boys had already fallen asleep - so, really, they got to enjoy everything but waking up outside. So they still had a great time, I think. Ben was a little bummed to have to come inside - but there's always next weekend. . .
