July 30

I finished my apron today which was way more work than it needed to be.
I also canned 4-500s of peaches and 3 quarts of pickled beans.
We went for a beautiful walk and had grilled pizza for dinner, how much better does summer get?

Hiking, July 28

Wow two days went fast.
We started with Tash and I going for a hike up Vedder Mountian (which you should never attempt with a car)
We ended up walking the 2.5 km to the start of the trail and the the 5.5 to the top. When we got to the almost top we saw this,
And we both couldn't stop laughing, we were so tired at that point, but we managed to make it up and saw this view.
It was so nice to be up there.
We had lunch and started back down.
We were dehydrated at the end of our 16km walkand really glad to see Shane.
Tash and I spent the night in a field under the stars which was amazing. We ate breakfast at the wellington and found some really great deals on fabric.
I din't bring my camera but shane and I went to the agrifair in abbostford tonight.

July 26

Just thought I'd update to show you why i haven't been.

My garden is doing good.
The beans are almost done
The cucumber is getting big!
The tomatoes are all still green.
A few days ago I planted parsnips, broccoli, snow peas, brussels sprouts and carrots
These guys are cute!

I made this mixed berry cobbler with some of the blackberries climbing over the back fence

This has been the biggest project of all. The whole house is under a face lift. This office is the only room done.
We also got a new sectional. Bad. I know....but it's awesome!
And last but not least my beautiful mini roses!

Camping July 2010

We went camping. It was only one day, very worth it.
We went on some nice walks.
We played Dutch blitz! and Monopoly Deal!

We ate corn and ribs and potatoes from the coals.
We roasted marshmallows and made smores!

We slept on the ground and got punched in the face by butter
