My Favorite Things From June

Today I am joining a link up (my first!) with Dancing with Ashley and talking about my favorite things from the month of June!

1- The Beach Trip!

Every June my parents rent a beach house for a week and my family packs up and relocates for an awesome vacation!  It was a great week full of games, food and of course the beach!  Everyone pitched in on taking care of the toddlers which was SO appreciated!  Especially since my little Lily seems to be a fish.  Anytime that anyone was heading down towards the water Lily would trail along behind and catch up– it was so sweet to see my family members just turn around and extend a hand or pick her up knowing exactly what she wanted.  One of my favorite memories from the week was crab hunting with the girls on the last night– their reactions were simply priceless but alas, pictures in the dark never really turn out.





2- The Splash Pad

There is a small splash pad in a shopping center near my moms house.  We have spent some fun hours over there and know we will spend many more there this summer. Check out Waverly Place in Cary for the splash pad and tons of events going on there this summer!

3- The NC Farmers Market

I know I have talked about the Farmers Market a ton on this blog– but every time I go I love it even more.  It's peach season over there and they are gorgeous and you can fill your tummy up on all the delicious samples just by doing the rounds.  I have enjoyed talking to the vendors the past few times I have gone and gotten recommendations for how to cook vegetables I have never made before.  The results have been really good and I have some new recipes to share with you soon!





I know the month of July will have even more wonderful things that I can share with you!

    1. My mom buys a 1/2 bushel every week just to slice up and eat! We mooch off of her supply. We might be a bit peach crazy! I have a feeling there are lots of peach recipes coming your way!
