Early Summer recap

Swim is her jam
Laura was awarded Gator of the Week at a swim meet early in the season. She has been proudly wearing the green cap ever since.

Wild Weekend
In early June, Laura, Emma and Sarah missed a swim meet to go camping with me and some girls in Laura's troop. We went to Wild Weekend at Girl Scout camp. 
Laura learned fire building

Emma canoed like a pro
Sarah joined up with some other Juniors in the high meadow after grooming the horses.
Not pictured is Sarah and Laura canoeing, Emma and Sarah braving serious mosquitos in the archery area, and singing goofy songs at the campfire.
All the other pictures have the other girls in them and well, Internet privacy and all that. 

Sarah and Emma took a dance class together again. Their ballet dance was Orange Marmalade and their tap dance was Deep Purple. 

For Father's Day we headed to WizardCon. We met Sebastian Stan, who wasn't very into fans at the time, Billy Boyd, who was a good sport and said "What about second breakfast?" for Howard, and Ray Park, aka Darth Maul, and Snake Eyes. He was really cool, spent time with people, and even took pictures for people with other actors and cosplayers.
Adam found this cosplayer and was happy that he was willing to take a pic.


Thanks to Gravity Falls, our family has a holiday we celebrate every June 22. It's Summerween, when we dress up, trick or treat and carve Jack O'Melons.

The idea is to give out loser candy. This year's candidate was Sugar Babies. Turns out the kids don't love the sugary deliciousness. Boo.
