July Highlights


July was a great month! 
We got up to the mountain and it was such a relaxing time after working on the backyard every day off. Speaking of our backyard-here's the finished product:

Our annual Robin Hood Festival in Sherwood was a blast!

Aaron is getting prepped for skateboard camp in August by having lessons on Saturday now.  He's getting good!

Ashley came to visit and we got to celebrate her 21st Birthday.
Here she is with her karate mini figure.  We choose this one for her because she's taking kung fu classes this year.



Dinner out for Ashely's birthday with the fam at this great spot:

Twig Martini Bar





Cousins



We enjoyed our week with Ash and Aaron loved having his sister around. She was able to escape the Arizona heat a bit, get her hair done and appointments in, spend time shopping with friends and relax a bit.



I switched up my lunch routine and instead of trying new places I spent more time at Native Foods Cafe.  It's so good and healthy. I could eat there everyday.



I got to try some new summer flavors at our favorite ice cream spot, Salt N Straw.

This one is strawberry with cilantro lime cheesecake.



Aaron went to International Soccer camp for three  weeks because he liked the first week so much!  I highly recommend this camp:

Aaron and his coach Collum



Coach Alley


Aaron's best friend Noah got to take the camp too.


I got to run two fun races-The Harvest Days 1/2 marathon in Battleground  and the very hilly Run for Wine Half.
and

I love the Wine run overlooking wine country. It takes forever but is so scenic.



Good friend Joe's Birthday party and barbecue with Aaron's soccer camp coaches

Robin Hood Festival Weekend



I got to wear my new dress from Free People to the Robin Hood Festival we have yearly in Sherwood-here Oregon.  It's so light and airy and was a perfect fit.


These slips from Gap work perfect underneath this dress-I got the black and nude to change the look of the dress up:
I got the flower crown from Free People too. It can be a pony tail wrap too. They don't have it anymore but this braid in they have is cool: here





A band we love named Hit Machine played.  Here's Tracie and Aaron waiting for the band to start-cute little Robin Hood's.



Airbrushed tattoos



And the next day a great race with my cousin and sister.  I ran my fastest half marathon so far in 1:51!


Outfit Roundup-My summer staples that will move well into fall.
