Summer Adventuring... and a TUSAL update!

Picture Heavy Post :)

We've been adventuring again this summer.  This seems to be the summer of "pick up and go".

We've spent time visiting with family at the lake, getting in some fishing and water time.

Spending hours in the van watching the miles pass by.

And loving every minute of our destination :)

And we haven't had our fill yet as we're leaving again tonight!

So ~ I've managed to add a little bit to my TUSAL container this month.  This was mainly my last exchange piece and a little bit of BoInk stitching. 

And I've spent all that van time (and then some!) granny striping away...  This is working up so quickly and I'm loving each and every stripe!!

Thanks for sharing our adventures with me!  I hope your summer has been having its fair share of adventuring too :)

I love spontaneous adventures like that and they are the ones that the kids remember (for the stress comes in when you sit down and plan). Looks like a lot of interesting places you all have visited. I can't wait to see where else you go!
Take care and enjoy!

Your post makes me wish my kids were little again and we could just pop in the car and take a trip to some random spot! Hope you have more wonderful adventures as the summer winds down :)
