I spent most of the morning and early afternoon working in the yard. Lots of mowing, weeding, pruning and just puttering around. Also, I cleared out an area in the back part of our yard and Cole and I made 2 more compost piles. I love that he gets as excited about it as I do. We used layers of leaves, pine needles, pinecones, newspaper, shredded cardboard and egg cartons, grass clippings, manure, coffee grounds, banana peels, dryer lint, egg shells, and some other food scraps. Then we covered it with a layer of topsoil and wet it down.

Our family had a great time yesterday at the Scouting Camporee at the Fairgrounds....celebrating 100 years of Scouting. Originally my Dad and stepmom were coming up for the weekend to celebrate Gracie's birthday, and my Dad, Paco and Cole were going to make it a boys' day at Camporee, while us girls did something "girly". Unfortunately, my Dad had to have eye surgery at the last minute, and they were unable to come...so Gracie and I tagged along. I'm so glad we did! We went with several families from our pack, and communicated throughout the days on our walkie-talkies...very fun! Each boy had a "buddy" to stay with throughout the day, and then we all met up for dinner, a show by Giovanni the magician, and a spectacular fireworks display.
checking out some military jeeps..

The boys made cool dog tags..with skulls of course.
