Pumpkin Pie is a HUGE Star Wars fan. :)
Hi everyone! It's been a while, I must say...summer is keeping us all busy (as usual), but it's been a great summer so far and filled with HOT sunny days. I am in hog heaven. :)
This June started out a little on the chilly side, but soon warmed up to my much loved, glorious balmy sunshine.
We celebrated Pumpkin Pie's 7th birthday with a trip to our local indoor trampoline gym, then to Build-A-Bear and then to her favorite restaurant, the Chinese Buffet. :)
It's so hard to believe she's 7 already!
Those blue mountains in the distance are the Catskill Mountains.
I've been walking a lot this summer (anywhere from 2-4 miles per day) and I feel so lucky to live in a place that has a lot of beautiful scenery to look at.
Here's a look at what I see on one of my daily walks during my lunch break....
So gorgeous!! I love living here. I have a hard time at the end of winter, but most of the time it's a great place to be. It's funny to think that that I didn't realize the beauty of this place and the quaintness of this town until I moved back. I miss the conveniences of a city/suburb, but would rather live in the country any day. :)
June also started the "strawberry picking season" for us and we visited a local fruit farm to pick our delicious berries. This was the first season that Little Button really got the hang of it.
Flowers are everywhere! I am not good with flowers and just don't have the time or extra finances (becuase I spend it all on dolls, haha) to make or keep up with a good flower garden so these photos were taken at my aunt's house up the street.
I love the smell of fresh thyme!
The end of the month marked Little Button's 4th birthday and on her day we went to see "Finding Dory" at the movies and then Chuck-E-Cheese for lunch. I'm not sure if CEC is just a Northeast thing or not, but that place has changed a lot since I was a kid! (Not as fun, but the girls had a blast.)
She is at such a cute age...so appreciative of everything.
Overall, June was a lovely month. July is almost halfway over already...it's like SLOW DOWN summer!
I have been pretty quiet with doll blogging as I'm just not finding the time for it at the moment, but hoping to get more posts up soon. I have been saving for our vacation coming up in a few weeks so not so much on the doll buying front either!
I have seen some of the new Monster High reboots as well as the budget reboot of some EAH dolls and I can say I'm not too interested as of now. It's not that I mind their faces, it's just that their outfits and accessories aren't really up to the standard of the older ones.
There are many other dolls out there that I have my eyes on anyway! :)
Hope you all have a great week.
