Today I canned in a real boiling water bath for the first time. I made the yummiest salsa. I hope the cooked stuff is as good as the fresh. Thanks to Lisa for the tips and encouragement.

First Day of School for them...

...Meant first day ALONE in the park with Mom for Quinn.

After enjoying my amazing birthday surprise in Utah
I came home to this awesome surprise!
(Nice undies Quin

Finally using the Sacramento Rivercats tickets
we won at the scout auction. Little did I know that we were waiting for the
Giants' farm league team
to be in town.

(Don't you wish you were sitting by Lu?
Not so much fun until the snow cones showed up.)


Just call me Snow White.
I'm sure we saw a singing bluebird or two as well.
(This was heading down our driveway Friday morning
as we headed out for Twin Falls)

The little girlies loved following Calli around -
her train never touched the ground!

And no, that's not Michelle in the back right corner.
Just the older, shorter version - you inspired me Shell...bangs and all.

This is how the girls ate

**Salads, rolls, chicken, potatoes, etc...
(McKenzie, Kajsa, Jessica, Hailey, MaryAnna)

This is how the boys ate

**Salads, rolls, prime rib, potatoes, etc...
(Davis, Mitchel, Dallin, Matthew, Ryan)

And this is how these boys ate!
** Pigs in a blanket and macaroni on the wall and ready to run
(Trey, Quinn, Zach)
