July was a busy month, so there are tons of pictures.
Ben arrived home safe and sound from his scout camp. He earned several merit badges and had a great time.
After just one day home, he was off to scout camp # 2. Ben had the opportunity to participate in Silver Mocassin leadership camp. Ben and Scott ready to go!
Ben and his troop heading to meet the parents after camp.
I think Ben's face says it all, " I'm ready to sleep in my own bed!"

On the way home, we had to stop at Dick's in Kamas so the boys could have lunch and of course a shake!
Celebrating 7-11 at 7-11 for free Slurpees with Braden and Abby.
Our ward did an evening of service and here is Ben and the other youth in the ward after working hard in Sister Fenner's yard. Our ward helped over 9 families spruce up their yards; it was a neat project and glad we could participate.
On Wednesday, July 13, we took off for our annual trip to Door County, Wisconsin. We love going here and we took my mom with us this year and had a great time. We decided to do a few new things this trip and began the trip with a tour of Lambeau Field, home of Ben's team, the Green Bay Packers! The Packers have a very interesting history, and it was really fun. If ever in Green Bay, I highly recommend the tour!

The biggest cheese head of all!
Ben showing off a few of his treasures from the gift shop.
Ben chilling in one of the luxury suites. There is a 60 year waiting list for anyone wanting to buy season tickets. In fact, there are more people on the waiting list than seats in the arena, and it holds over 70,000 fans. It is the smallest NFL market, but the city loves their Pack!
Ben just inches away from the field. Wisconsin winters can be brutal and so many of the games are played in bitter cold. That was hard to fathom on a hot, humid July day!
We all became Green Bay fans that day!
Grandma celebrating her hole in one at the mini golf park.
Ben and Brian tried a few new golf courses in Door County.
I have always wanted to do a zip line and so when I found out that there was one in Door County, I was all for it. Ben was a good sport and went with me. Here we are all ready to climb and zip....
Ben went first; it was a pretty tame zip line.
Here I go, and even though I am afraid of heights I LOVED IT!!!! Can't wait to zip again!
These guys were the zip line guides; really funny and the one guy in the Fitch shirt was from England and loved my Tom's shoes.
Bri and I enjoying dinner at our favorite Fish Creek Restaurants-Julies. My hair is straight not from a flat iron, but the humidity. It was some of the most humid days Wisconsin had all summer.
Bri, Ben and Grandma at Julie's
Every visit we rent bikes and bike through Pennisula State Park. Beautiful view of Green Bay. It's one of our favorite activities!
Bri showing his skill at skipping rocks.
Ben and Grandma on the beach.
Sunset dinner at Fred and Fuzzy's Waterfront Grill. Our last night in Door County.
So we headed to Green Bay anticipating our flight home, but due to severe thunderstorms in the Midwest, we spent another night on vacation. No worries, found a nice hotel with an indoor waterslide. Ben didn't mind the extra night in Green Bay!
Had some fun pool parties with my friends and their kids. My cute friend Emily came over and I just love her kids. Noah, Izzy and Cashe enjoying swim time with me.
