Warm days can leave the house seeming a little sniffy and stuffy, so offset this by mixing up an oh so Summery air freshener using 30 drops ofpeppermint oil, 30 drops of lime oil and 35 drops of grapefruit oil in 40z of water. Shake and leave to blend for a day or two before spritzing into the air as often as you see fit.

We've had so much fresh fruit around lately - cantaloupe, strawberries, tomatoes, bananas. You know what that bring . . . fruit flies!!! Stephen helped me yesterday and made 2 fly catchers - one for the dining room and one for the kitchen. He couldn't wait to wake up this morning and see if they were working. (the girls aren't near as interested in catching fruit flies!!!) :-) It worked!!! There were a couple of little places we needed to tape up a little tighter so there can be no escape. Artie will be impressed when he gets in tonight.

I couldn't find any grapefruit or mint but I did find Orange Blossom & Bamboo. It was a lovely smell last night before bed.

They are all up off the ground and have plenty of room to keep growing. I need to plant some more marigolds down the side!!! They look so pretty up against the tomatoes.
Here are some of our Roma tomatoes.

Bobby showing off on the dock.
Brian's girlfriend, Lauren came. She thought she "didn't do lakes" - she found out differently. This was her first ever camping trip, first s'more and the first time she caught a fish.
Brian helping Artie tear down the tent. Brian turned 20 on Sunday. I made his spaghetti for his birthday dinner. The kids loved their presents to him - a flashlight, basketball cards, a chess set, a green water bottle, and a dice set to play "Greedy" with.
