August activities

Fun summer days with cousins

I decided to try making my own salsa this summer. I'm pretty impressed at how it turned out. We also did pickles but my pictures didn't turn out very good.

Putting the jars in the water bath.

Our finished product. Pretty yummy!

We hiked in Corbin's Glen one night. Here's Mason doing what he loves, finding rocks and throwing them in the water.

Mike and Caleb walking in the water. Caleb enjoyed looking over the edge of the waterfall

On the hottest day of the summer we went to the spray park. The kids played on the playground before they turned the water on.

Mason was alittle worried of the water at first but after he saw what happened he was running around with Caleb

Our Sunflowers look so cool. Here is one. We have red with orange and some with yellow and all yellow. The colors are great.

Fish hatchery

On one of our hikes we found this chimney. The kids thought it was so funny in the middle of the woods all by itself.

We went camping with friends of ours up to Bristol. All the boys thought it was funny to line up and jump off of this bench.

The next day we went hiking in Grimes Glen. It was so pretty. We walked along the water and were able to go near waterfalls. Unfortunately it wasn't as warm as we wanted. We all still got wet.

Caleb decide to climb this hill.

And this is what happened. Covered in mud!

We found this cool looking lizard near one of the caves.
