Peaches Peaches Peaches Pickles

My parents came down this last weekend and brought 4 boxes of peaches and half a bushel of cucumbers for me! Oh the joy! They also brought a bunch more peaches, like 14 boxes, for friends. What great parents! Even though their stay was short we accomplished a lot. They got in Saturday evening... we just hung out and distributed the peaches. Sunday was full of fun things...Like Eliza's 5th birthday!

I spent the morning decorating her cake, making a peach pie for the grown ups. We were pretty spoiled!

Monday mom and I did 35 quarts of peaches, froze 2 bags of peaches, 2 batches of peach jam, 13 quarts dill pickles and 8 quarts sweet pickles.

When I say we... let me explain that mom did most of the work. I kind of felt like the manager while she cut peaches. She would get a set in the processor and then ask what else I wanted as she kept cutting. So we froze them, jammed them...whatever we could. My mom is a HARD worker! We our last batch of peaches was in the water within 4 hours of starting! She is amazing. It also helped that dad entertained the kids and ran to the store when we needed!

So we will enjoy these for the rest of the year and hope they come down to help next year!

Panquitch Lake Camping

Here is our camping trip from about 2 weeks ago. We had a great time with Grandpa and Granny Lee at Panguitch Lake in southern Utah. The kids were great and the fishing was fun!

Going Back In Time

Wow! It has been a long time since I have posted. Sorry. Well, we did have an awesome camping trip in July with some friends so here are some pictures from Mt. Charleston.

This was my favorite picture of the whole trip. My kids have the greatest dad ever!

First Day of School

Here is our sweet girl off to school.... She was so happy to go that I didn't even cry. I did tear up but nothing too bad. Scott was able to come with the family. It was a great day!
Eliza still loves going to school and loves her teacher. I can't believe how much she is learning already! What a great kid!
