The summer has definitely started off with a bang! From working in the yard to going on our first family vacation this summer, we have certainly been enjoying every minute of our summer break. One of our newest adventures for this summer is to become a biking duo in the big town of Pelzer. Quinn completely surprised me with an awesome blue beach cruiser bike for my birthday a couple of weeks ago (notice the awesome basket I found at the beach). So, we ventured today and got Quinn one so we could ride along down main street together. Of course it has been ridiculously hot all day long, so we decided to wait to ride later in the evening. It was perfect! That was until a sweat bee flew in Quinn's eye and stung him. Luckily, we weren't far from Blake's house so we could stop by for an eye wash. After Quinn's eye was recovered, we finished off our wonderful evening ride. It is just one of the many to come this summer.
Speaking of bees, our barn (a.k.a our garage) has begun to be taken over by bees. Well, luckily I married a Bee Bandit and they have been destroyed as of this afternoon. Take a look at the Bandit below. What an eventful day it has been at the Pearson household!

This was our last adventure of the summer. We decided to pack it all up one more time and head to Twin Lakes Campground. Let me tell you, we had ourselves a blast. When we got there, we thought a tornado was coming across Lake Hartwell. During all that tornadic activity, we were trying to put up our tent. The tent became more of a parachute than a shelter. We were not the only ones having problems that day either. Amber's daddy, Ricky, was setting up his pop-up camper and all most turned the whole thing over. As our tent was about to soar us into the air and Ricky was flipping his camper, our neighbors came over and asked, "Do ya'll need some help?" Needless to say, we had some pretty cool neighbors because they let us borrow a much needed hammer. Once the homestead was established, we went swimming, tubing, skiing, and most importantly did some major grilling out. One of our biggest challenge of the trip was trying to get our dog, Sadie, to swim. We bought her a life jacket and for the most part it worked and she swam for a little while. We do have to brag some about Sadie because she was such a good little dog while we were there. She slept in the tent with us at night and that was pretty interesting. All in all, we have to give major props to Ricky for being the camp cook/recreational chief. Jamey, Hope, and the one and only Bryce were awesome campsite buddies. To sum it up, we had an incredible time living outdoors and hope to do it again soon.
