I'm Getting a Yak

Holy fly-by summer, Batman! Is it really July thirty-first? Is this month really coming to a close already?

That was so fast. Too fast! The Hig house residents will miss July. We've gotten in a fair amount of ice cream and boat rides. Babyhig got in the lake for the first time ever!! I've even gotten to sit in the sun just for the sake of sitting in the sun...
...for the first summer in three years! I have the tiniest bit of a sun-kissed glow.

*fist pump*

I don't know what the joke is, but I love this picture.

We also got to visit the nearby Dutch Creek Animal Farm over the 4th of July weekend. If you live in my area, I highly recommend a visit. The cost includes admission to a petting zoo, and a wagon ride where all kinds of animals (Zedonks! Camels! Brama bulls! Elk! Yaks!) run up close enough for you to touch and feed. For the record, if I ever have the opportunity to own an animal just for the sake of eccentricity, I'm getting a yak. Adorable. 

Isn't he the cutest?! If only you could see him do his little yak run!

And of course, there was all the usual fourth of July melee.  We were so happy to be able to enjoy so many of these summer moments with my little brother and his new wife...and are so sad to see them move away. Adulting. It's the worst. Except that you get to be married and have kids, and only receive mild protest when lighting off fireworks, and all the other awesome things. Except for that, it's the worst. (Also, does anyone else's family enjoy telling horrific firework stories while simultaneously lighting them with glee?)

Anyway, we'll miss them, and not just for their abilities to make shapes and letters with sparklers.

Props and thanks to the people who were kind enough to make an explanation of how to take sparkler pictures. 

I really can't complain for a second about this summer, except to note that it is going by all too fast. Everyone else in SW Michigan must have been enjoying July, too, because they've been too busy to come look at and then buy our house. :) Ah well. 

I'll be back soon to share a really special purse project with you (Hint: Big Hero 6 is involved), but for now I'm going to keep enjoying this last July day and dream up how to thoroughly enjoy August as well! Any suggestions? :)
