Too Many CLOTHES!!!

I feel like our clothes are growing. I don't know how they do it, but the laundry seems to never be done or never completely folded. Or the kids are constantly outgrowing things and I have boxes full of clothes to be stored and they seem to be piling up. How could we possibly have so many clothes!!!!?? I swear that I just cleaned out drawers a few weeks ago--well I did, but I have more stuff to clean out of both of their dressers. But I have a new favorite treat. It beacons me and helps me get through folding laundry so I can go sneak a bit as my reward. I love brownies. I adore brownies. I crave their ooey gooey goodness, but we've been trying to cut back on sugars and unhealthy treats and I came across a recipe for raw brownies. It's simple, fast and easy.
1 cup Dates
1 cup Pecans
unsweetened cocoa powder to your taste
I'm drooling just thinking about it. I actually like to add more pecans than dates. It's my preference. You can either eat the deliciousness right out of the food processor( or whatever you use to blend them) or you can press them into a pan and slice up some deliciousness. I made some last night and am tempted to make some now. Hmmm. Maybe I'll fold some laundry so I deserve a treat. I also have a new recipe for Cashew Carrot Curry soup--But I'll save that post for later this week. I'm off to fold laundry so I can eat some brownies.

SOunds yummy I will have to try some. I felt the same way about laundry but now I have a designated laundry day and I have a goal to get all the clothes washed that day and then either that night or the next night after Jared and the kids are in bed I fold it all and watch a show I love. It has been awesome and I actually look forward to it everyday!

July 18th Bannack State Park

Packing, unpacking, cleaning, organizing, planning, re-planning, forest fires, ferry tickets, laundry-sooo much laundry, worrying, angst, stressing, food planning, bag picking, snack buying, roof racks, chickens, dogs, kids, and alas we are off. Nothing felt better then when we locked all the doors asking over and over if we'd forgotten anything and took off towards the open road. Only to turn back to rearrange the cooler because we almost smashed Isaak when we made our first turn. It felt like a relief for it to finally be happening. I was excited to spend the next month with four of my most favorite people on an adventure. We have one of our biggest drives ahead of us today and it was only a mere 5.5 hour drive to Bannack, Montana.

The ride was hot, but we had air conditioning which helped. Cory talked about when he was a kid they'd make their yearly journey to Edmonton sweating, sticky and uncomfortable. He dreamed of swimming pools and lakes at his final destination. We le…

July 19th Flathead Lake

It was a little chilly this morning until the sun came over the mountains then we were sticky and hot within minutes. We had a hard time trying to figure out how to piece all of our stuff back together into the car. Cory made breakfast while I broke down camp. The kids ran around covered in mosquito bites. There were so many mosquitoes. Zelly got the worst of it. She got bit right by her eye and it's swollen up. She looks like she got in a fight at the saloon in Bannack. The poor gal. Isaak is itching his until they bleed. I finally put lavender and tea tree oil on them all and that helped. We bought this bug-spray without Deet since Zella is still too young to use Deet, but I don't think it was that effective obviously since we have about 20 bites a pieces. Hungry little mosquitoes. After two hours of arranging and rearranging we got everything and everyone back in the car, but we made a quick stop at the Ghost town to hike up to the cemetery and see a few more of the houses.…

July 21st Radium Springs

I was awoken in the night by lightening and thunder. It didn't smell like rain so I assumed it was another lightening storm and I hoped it wouldn't start any forest fires. I fell back to sleep to be awoke by the sound of rain pelleting the tent about an hour later. I hurried and put a stake in the rain fly and crawled back into bed. It rained and it poured and it rained and it poured almost the entire rest of the night. We woke up to a soddy camp, but we had survived for the most part but because of my insistence that it wasn't going to rain we didn't properly stake down the rain fly so the tent was wet around the bottom. Isaak's bag was wet from snuggling with the wet tent. We knew we couldn't pack up until everything was dry so we had some farm eggs with bacon for breakfast. Seriously so good. Cory has been doing most of the cooking probably because it was my vacation and he wanted to do that. Probably the same reason we stayed up super late the first night p…
