Family Time

We've had a great summer so far and Kenzie has had some real quality time with her daddy. I am teaching summer school for four hours a day, so on the days when Dustin isn't working his summer job (right now he's only working Mondays and Thursdays) Kenzie gets to have her dad all to herself. I've already seen the bond between them growing. She used to reserve kisses for just Mama and Kona (okay, and any other dog), but now she shares them with Dustin too. He is enjoying his time with her and I think when the start of the school year comes it will be harder than normal for him to head back to work.

We are so lucky to have lots of time together over the summer and we try to get out ever afternoon to do something fun.

Last week we went for ice cream at the UConn dairy bar, then paid a visit to the cows that provided the milk for our tasty treat.

We went blueberry picking. We've been eating everything from blueberry pancakes, to blueberry bread and blueberry crisp. Kenzie is in her glory!

We had a blast cooking out and swimming at Bigelow Hollow with Alan, Leigh and kids. (Kona had fun, too)

And Kenzie's first (very brief) kayak ride was a success.
We hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we are.
