Farmer Ron

In honor of Father's Day I thought I would do a post about Ron. Technically he isn't my father but he did give me 5 great kids so he deserves mention on here from time to time. Ron is a farmer at heart. In addition to raising buffalo, cows, pigs, chickens and 4 dogs, he loves to garden. And he is really good at it! Every year he spends hours getting the soil ready, planting, watering, weeding and finally reaping the benefits of his hard work. We are enjoying tomatoes, carrots, radishes, cucumbers, green beans, 3 kinds of squash, black-eyed peas and he just picked his first watermelon. Plus there are beets, onions, peppers and cantaloupe still to come!

Here he is in all his glory.

Our son-in-law Tommy helped put in a watering system.

Look at those carrots

His first watermelon, isn't it beautiful!

Can you say zucchini?!!!
My contribution was bottling some of the bounty.

Thanks for letting me brag on my talented hubby!

We went from this:
To this!

And I also got some cute pics of the girls:

What a fun way to spend the afternoon!

Samantha's Blessing

Samantha was blessed yesterday. Curt did a great job and gave her a beautiful blessing. She cooperated and didn't fuss or cry. They live in a young ward and there were 5 babies blessed. Afterwards we went back to their house and enjoyed a yummy meal. It was great to spend time with family.

The cute family of five now.

We love you Samantha!

Jennings Family Swim Party

At the start of the year my sister and I decided to put some dates down on the calendar for Jennings family get togethers. We feel it is important to keep getting the family together as we are growing fast and getting bigger every minute. (6 new babies have been born in the past year with 2 more coming soon!) The first one was in March at Gordon's and last night we went to Debbie's for a swim party. The evening turned out perfect with great weather, great food, and great people! Here are some random pics of the fun:

We finished off the evening with some yummy homemade ice cream made by yours truly. The next date will be in October when Ron and I will host a sausage gravy breakfast. Can't wait!
