//A Trip to Indiana for the Cousin's Wedding//
the "little girls"....all dressed up and ready to party at the wedding.
These little ladies had a grand time playing together.
We enjoyed a lovely taco salad lunch together outside.
Lynds and I.
The guys......watching Sherlock Holmes.
Some sort of sibling picture.:)
My darling grandparents walking out hand in hand.
My mother and her siblings (minus the two that weren't there).

These tomato/cheese/pesto sandwhiches.......ahhh SO good! Just take a thin round (or piece) or bread, slather on some fresh pesto, add a few just-from-the-garden tomato slices, top with shredded mozzarella cheese, throw on a little salt and pepper, and broil in the oven till browned. Best eaten outdoors!
We canned salsa on Monday. I can't believe how blessed I am to work with my favorite people like this.
//A Surprise Birthday Party//
Surprise birthday parties are way too fun, especially when the birthday girl is one of the dearest people in the world and has such a lovely reaction to the surprise. It was a sweet evening of eating (lots), talking, laughing, singing, and celebrating.
We are so proud of these five for their hard work over the summer. Last Saturday the big day arrived and they headed out to our local Bible Bee competition. They were confident and excited. All of them did well, but we don't know yet how many of them will be going on to nationals. For now, they're enjoying a few days, at least, of no studying!
