They're BaAack...

Yay! Aunt Melissa and Uncle Jeff are back up for school. Which means free babysitting and a large crowd for Sunday dinner. We spent a BEAUTIFUL Friday evening at the farmer's market eating some amazing corn on the cob, cotton candy, and fudge. Can't get any better than that.
Since it's been a while since I've posted I thought I'd do a quick up date. On Labor day we took a nice drive up to Mesa Falls for a little walk and a picnic. The best part of the trip was that saw our old Bishop and his wife. What a fun surprise!!


There was a little museum and it was funny seeing Ben afraid of the dead bear on the wall.

He liked the moose.

Then last Saturday some of our good friends were taking their train out for rides. It's the cutest little train that has been in there family for years. Seth took the kids while I was out running a group yard sale for my FCCLA girls, which turned out to be a great success!!

Just a random picture of the kids playing in the dryer.


And another random picture of the first batch of many pints of tomato sauce we will be canning this month. We made a few mistakes with our very first garden, but one mistake turned out pretty awesome.

We planted exactly 18 tomato plants because I got them for really cheap at the high school horticulture sale.
I thought why not, having no idea we would end up with two hundred plus tomatoes. So if you need some tomatoes come on over!

200 tomatoes. Holy schmolies. Way to build the food storage!! I kind of want to try making my own salsa... My mom does it but isn't around to show me now.

Can't wait to hear about your yard sale!!

How fun! You have been busy having lots of fun. That train looks awesome. And I just can't tell you how adorable Maggie is! Just like her mama.

Hi Rachel, I miss you guys so much! I miss hanging out and doing fun outings. Like our fire at the sand dunes when people shot fireworks at us and someone broke your guys' windsheild, oh the memories=) You are so cute with gardening and canning, I guess I'm to chicken to try canning. I'm afraid i'd do it wrong and poison my family, so I play it safe and buy it at the store for now. Great harvest from your garden though. Maybe you guys should open up a booth at the farmer's market! Love you and miss you. Hope we can see you for thanksgiving.
