Water Park!


At trip to a water park in the middle of summer can be a real treat! Especially if you go with some really good friends! We went to a water park near us with our sweet friends the Boyds! (I would make their name a link like all the cool people do, but because I lack that talent here is just their link! http://seedstosew.blogspot.com/)

We had a whole lot of fun! They have nine and we have eight so all together there were seventeen kids! What fun!

More photos later...

Garden post

Well I was planning to go out and photograph our garden today, but the rain came in and put stop to that idea!!! Our garden however is doing really well! Our okra and tomatoes right now are the strongest, but everything else is doing well! Okra loves the heat so it has taken off! This is our first year to have eggplant and cantaloupe in our garden. The years before this we have always tried but never succeeded! However this year both of those plants are doing really well. We have already eaten quite a few melons and the eggplant is coming in! We have learned quite a few facts on cantaloupe. Here is one... All the books we have read say to harvest your watermelon when it falls off the vine. However we have found to harvest it just before it falls off. This is a little risky because you can't be sure, but over all the fruit will taste ten times better!!!

Rachel's Dress

This is my sister (this is Jessica writing) Rachel in her new dress. Now it is really cute and very nice, but then she tells you that she made it with out a pattern! Not only that, but she has never made a colonial dress before!! She is really creative with sewing! We all really enjoy sewing, but Rachel takes it to a new level!

Watering the dog with a cheerful heart!!!

Here at our house we have four dogs so everyday at six in the morning we get up and walk them. That is not hard, but the walk in the afternoon is hard. Our sinful human nature leads to complaining, discontentment, and slothfulness. In the=hottest part of the day it is so much easier to stay inside and sew or read that to go take care of a dumb beast.

But!! Our animals are a gift from God so... everyone outside with a cheerful heart! The dogs are thirsty!!!

Don't take this to mean that just because you have animals you don't have to get outside!
You probably have SOMETHING useful you can do with your life!!!

Garden Snacks!!

My dad got this idea from a man he works with...
When your out in your garden and you are feeling rather hungry, you can have a quick, easy, healthy, and tasty snack right then! First take a cherry tomato, then pick a basil leaf, wrap the tomato in the leaf, and pop it in your mouth! I do this all the time and it its so good!

Also something we do for dinner is put cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, and feta cheese in bowls on the table. Everyone gets a toothpick and the spear the different "toppings". This is a great way to taste your garden fresh! No added things. No corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup. Just you and the garden!!!
