We went to Kootenay Lake a couple of times while we were in Yahk. It is such a beautiful lake and the kiddos were all pretty happy to play! Everyone enjoyed getting into the water and we had so much fun! Just look at the joy on Maeve's face as Conor tossed her! And holy moly, Conor is looking good! So glad he's mine! 

Holly spent pretty much the entire time floating around with her new peacock tube. So much fun! I'm so grateful!

PS: I can't believe how tall Holly is standing in front of me! 

We spent a lovely few days in Yahk with my parents, sisters, and some extended family. The girls just love going to Yahk and enjoying freedom and lots and lots of cousin play time! There's always lots of yummy food. Conor and I played games with family members. And Maeve actually did an excellent job of sleeping! Conor and I got to hike a little bit together. Here are some highlight photos from our time around the trailer. A million thanks to my Auntie Michele for letting us stay in her trailer. It makes our trip up so much smoother and easier. 

I forgot Maeve's bonnet in Yahk. It was time fora bigger one anyways. I love how this one turned out! The pattern is a freebie from Purl Soho. 

This weekend we went camping at Priest Lake in Idaho. We tried out a new campground (Beaver Creek) and aimed to camp for 2 nights, but ended up staying for only one. Maeve was up from 1am onwards... so we were pretty tired! Fortunately, we still made some excellent memories. There was a full moon that looked extra awesome above the beautiful lake. We saw Saturn and Mars which was very exciting. We went to the beach to play in the water at about 10 am and spent a good chunk of time there before returning to the campsite to roast hot dogs and marshmallows in a thunderstorm. And then we packed up all our gear soaking wet and went home! Camping with a one year old is no cake walk. We've camped with each of our daughters at age one and this isn't the first time we've left early or felt exhausted. I'm pretty sure it's still worth it. We have one more camping trip (a one nighter) in August, and I'm crossing my fingers that next year, camping is more sleep filled!

Yesterday, we picked cherries (10#!) and some peaches. We love picking fruit out at Greenbluff. The real trick yesterday was to pick faster than Maeve was eating! Haha! We needed a close to home, easy Saturday activity this weekend so this was perfect. Today, I baked a small pan of brownies and I added fresh cherries. Yummy! I love summer.
