July roundup

Summer days have been wonderful.  This is the best summer I have had in awhile and me and the kids have been living outside as much as we can.  We had a few fun things happen in July... my nephew's 3rd birthday party, a new nephew born, a family trip to Grand Forks, a family gathering with Scott's family, pool parties with our new, bigger, much improved blow up pool, and a few other impromptu get togethers and day trips here and there.

Amongst all of the fun we've also been getting some work done around here and the yard and garden are looking really good.  We have an amazing crop of potatoes, green beans, peas, carrots, zuchinni and now cucumbers coming.  I've managed to freeze a fair bit of the beans and peas and the rest we have been enjoying fresh.  I was also able to buy some fresh berries at the farmer market last weekend and made a batch of strawberry saskatoon jam.  Mmmm.   









Hope that everyone else is enjoying their summer as much as we are!!
