Summer Days

Blogging has had to take a back seat lately...ever since arriving home from our fun trip to Oregon, we have felt the squeeze! You know the feeling that summer is quickly slipping away and we better hurry and squeeze in all our last minute adventures??? Yep, we have been busy having fun. A few of our recent activities have been:

Cheering Mom in a local 10k road race.

The kids were great cheerers at the finish line...I finished 14th....next year the boys want to join me.

We also had a corn party! My husband has tales to tell of his family corn parties...they were pretty large ordeals. We only did 5 dozen, but it was still a family endeavor.

Husking the corn...

This guy peeled it husk by husk....

and finally got to the kernels.

Getting all the "hair" off was the hardest part.

He couldn't wait to eat some.

She was pleased with each ear she husked all by herself.

The real work came when it was time to cut the corn off the cob.

Our youngest kept busy in his "cave."

We ended up with 17 quarts that we put in our freezer. Yummm!!

It wouldn't be summer if we didn't go fishing at our local fish pond.

These two wanted to fish too, but I could handle only two lines at a time...untangling is a tough job!

We got a couple of nibbles, but not a single fish liked our bait.

They were soooo close too, we could see them!!
We'll hope for better luck next time!!
