No troubles....
Grandpa was asked to make some bubbles and a bubble-maker
for a Primary activity.

Lexi had a great time.
She was trying to get into a bubble.

Some of them were bigger than she was!

It was fun experimenting with the recipe to get perfect bubbles.

2 quarts distilled water
6 tablespoons corn syrup
1/3 C dawn dish soap

I wish summer could last another few months!

We spent Saturday afternoon picking hucklerries.
For those of you who don't know what these
delicious, rare delights are....
I'm so sorry.

On our way home we stopped at Heise Hot Springs.
Known for great pizza, golf and swimming.

This car
 uhhh.....vehicle was in the parking lot.

The license plate reads REPENT!
This is some guys family car.

Thought provoking.

The Garden of Egan.
It's outta control.
It's a little hard to tell just how tall the corn on the right of Lexi is because of the tree in the background.

Trust me.
It. Is. Tall.

The corn on the left is tassled out and almost ready to eat.


Here is the view from the back of the garden.
The tall stuff is Silver Queen.

We certainly have had the temperatures for an amazing garden this year.

If the zucchini were a trucker...

It would be fined at the weigh station!

It has been so hot this year.
And we don't have air-conditioning.
But I have LOVED every minute of the sunshine and warmth.

I know the cold that lies ahead.
