The Month by iPhone :: July 2014

you know how people tell parents that the days are long but the years are short? I think that goes for everyone. between camp and the motel, it was another whirlwind month, but I was able to sneak in a couple trips up north and a few trips to Target (;

the perfect way to start off July? with an ice cream cone cookie from one of our campers who had just had a birthday!

is it just me, or do these clouds look like they have zebra stripes?

the big slide at Quietwoods South (:

{the saturation got a little messed up on this one, because our walls aren't lime green, they're more pistachio green} some of our guests were here for their anniversary, and he asked to have rose petals on the bed, so one of my co-workers did this for them!

Whitefish Bay Dunes State Park - I kept taking pictures of how pretty the skyline looked, but I'll spare you the rest (: there were so many seagulls out, and the tide was very high that day.

the historic village at Crossroads. I remember coming here a couple times in high school with the photography class {that I wasn't in, but I had excused study hall to the art room that block to work on Yearbook}, and I really want to come back here when they're open to take some pictures.

walking the trails at Crossroads.

isn't this adorable? we have this calendar from Disc Makers at the front desk at work, but it's off to the side and doesn't really get looked at a lot because we have another calendar by the computer. there are some really cute and funny illustrations in here, but two of the months are missing, which is pretty strange.

camp prep. for one of our centers, we let the kids color these animal hand puppets. that's not a pig, it's a dog... one of the little girls started crying because "I just really love cats," and the two cats had already been taken. I couldn't help but to think of that video of the lady who really likes cats {watch it here if you don't know/remember what I mean}

please also note that with the pack of hand puppets there was one red and three orange markers...

newest tattoo (: lion because I'm a Leo! {it was just temporary}

counting bears in the sensory table!

I felt so terrible about using these stamps!

clouds, clouds, neon.

Beetle friends (:

cherry orchard! because in Door County, the trees grow in rows.

art week at camp. this was someone's palette.

some like it hot... others are out of luck.

skeletal cartwheel.

I find it easier to do filing on the floor.

two Target trips in one day? it happens.

we took the campers for a cruise on the fire boat. while we were eating our snack before getting on the boat, we had to watch the bridge go up to let some yachts and sailboats through.

where the canal of Sturgeon Bay meets up with Green Bay. sky and water for nearly as far as you can see.

of course, we also got to watch the bridge going up from under the bridge!

zen bus! and a Luna reflection.

wildflowers in a mason jar from one of the musicians (:

30/52 2014

Yet another crazy week. I helped out with some gymnastic classes on Wednesday, and the little ladies were so giggly and funny. I read another book and watched some episodes of the Amazing Race. I'm watching season eight (the family edition), which is my favorite. It first aired when I was in 7th grade, and I loved Rolly! (: It was another busy weekend at work, and then on Monday I ran errands and painted my nails.

Wednesday 23 July // day two hundred four :: NatureBox day! {find out what was inside here}

Thursday 24 July // day two hundred five :: camp books for the week. this week was all about art. The Day the Crayons Quit and The Dot were my two favorite books we read this week.
{also pictured: Not a Box, I am an Artist, Little Blue and Little Yellow, Beautiful Oops!, and Mouse Paint}

Friday 25 July // day two hundred six :: this postcard came in the latest Boden catalog. I still don't know what to do with it, but it's too cute to throw away.

Saturday 26 July // day two hundred seven :: reading in the comfiest place before work.

Sunday 27 July // day two hundred eight :: lunchtime.

Monday 28 July // day two hundred nine :: Target. I brought my camera to take some pictures of the skatepark progress, but I didn't take any pictures there because it just looked like some piles of dirt and some guys working. it's kind of funny now that I took a picture at Target, because I actually ended up there twice.

Tuesday 29 July // day two hundred ten :: essie's fear or desire - a nice traffic cone orange.

NatureBox :: July 2014

This month's NatureBox was literally handed to me from the mailman himself, while he was sitting in the mail truck, because I just happened to be walking by, and I guess he knows who I am. I don't really know how to introduce this, so let's just jump right in.

Please note, I am not very good at food photography, and a lot of these things were really hard to get an attractive picture of.

There was a cute little pamphlet inside about packing lunches.

Carrot Strawberry Fruit Chews :: these don't have a very distinct carrot or strawberry flavor to me. they taste kind of grape-like, but not really. I guess that most fruit snacks probably don't have a distinct flavor. these aren't dry at all like most other fruit snacks.

Cinnamon Swirl Kettle Kernels :: these are nice and sweet, but I wish that the cinnamon sugar would stick to them better so they could have more of that flavor for longer, instead of just at first.

Dark Cocoa Nom Noms :: these taste identical to a brownie. seriously, they are so good. the texture is different though because of the oats, so they're more like a crunchy brownie. wait. that doesn't really sound right, because they're very soft, but their texture isn't smooth. maybe that's how to describe it.

Southern BBQ Sunflower Kernels :: these have the perfect bbq kick without being too spicy. I love a sweet bbq sauce, and this is the perfect flavor.

Baked Cheddar Potato Fries :: like the peppery ones that I tried before, these have a little kick to them, but it's not too much. these also have a little bit of a cheese flavor to them, but it's really not a lot in my opinion.

cherries & hay bales

on Monday afternoon, I just decided to go for a drive on the back roads up north a little bit. first I had to go to the gas station, because Luna was almost on empty {fine. almost on 1/8th of a tank.}, and on my way I passed a small cherry orchard with a field across the street. in that field, there were rectangular hay bales. now, I know that there are rectangular hay bales, but I'm used to seeing the big circular ones, so I thought that that was kind of strange. by the time I returned two hours later, they were gone so I couldn't take a picture.

the first three pictures are from some cherry orchard. I think it's Choice Orchards, but I'm not sure because there were no signs at all, just rows and rows of trees. {the sky is a little blown out on the first two because I forgot to change the ISO. I'm still getting used to shooting in manual.} while I was driving around, I had to go by Chateau Hutter of course, and there are more boarded up windows on the house {?} than last time, which is a little concerning. and then a picture of some rounded hay bales. (:
