We are so lucky to have some great entertainment on the island! I especially love the concerts and shows in the park all summer. This one was a Shakespeare group from Seattle and it was so great. Bella was in the show and even had lines! My friend Anne and I were also in the show, although they did not trust us with any real lines. ;) Very fun.

 

Jam

Plum (from our tree) strawberry freezer jam. This was my first try, so I stuck with an easy freezer jam recipe because traditional canning makes me a little nervous and I don’t want to kill anyone. I have purchased regular canning supplies though, and next I hope to can up all the blackberries we will soon have! :)

Levi turned eleven today and we celebrated by knocking out his wish list. Fried chicken, lots of fun gifts and cake! We also went to the movies and the girls did his chores for the day. Even Charlie the dog got in on the fun by showing up with a birthday wish tied to his collar and trailing behind him! Levi is an easy to please, easy going little man. When he isn’t reading, he is swimming, practicing his karate moves, playing outside, building Lego masterpieces or setting up huge army dude wars. Happy eleven to Levi!!

My Mom was here for a couple of weeks and we packed up and headed north for a couple nights of camping at Salt Creek.
