  87. I have to say the best thing I did this summer was... The Gaming Farm and the Purple Haze Lavender Farm. My hubby and I took our girls to The Gaming Farm here in Washington where we would ride through in our car and watch and feed the different animals like deer, Elk, Buffalo and many more walk around.

    After we fished up the drive around and feeding the animals wheat bread we went to a lavender Farm. And let me say it was truly amazing to smell them, see them, and tasted them.

    That's right we even tried lavender cookies and chocolate. They were all out of the ice cream but it was so fun. The family didn't care for the flavor as much but they do like the smell. Well all but the hubby seeing how his smell and tastes buds are one in the same. LOl!! The girls even picked lavender. And I picked up a oh so cute lavender stamp. So I got some craft stuff out of it.

    So yes this was an awesome moment in summer for me. I was able to spend time with my family. And give the girls a great summer.
