family storytelling family recipeLiving in small town America means summer is filled with the following: night games for children of all ages, lemonade stands where the lemonade is so sweet it could rot your teeth, and gardening.  I'll be honest, though.  I hate gardening!  I have the world's blackest thumb!  I'm not kidding; plants die around me, with almost no provocation.  My husband, on the other hand, is a master gardener!  It seems like all he has to do is smile at a plant and it grows!  Every year his garden is a sight to behold.  Early on in our marriage we made a deal that he would grow the produce and I would take it fro there.  I've learned how to preserve vegetables and fruits in many ways: bottling, juicing, freezing, and dehydrating.

Kids and the car cousin camp family storiesIt started spontaneously as soon as we announced we were heading out on an

epic journey to visit their cousins, the back seat exploded with a

spontaneous chant, “Cousins! Cousins! Cousins!” Their grandpa and I had

taken on the privilege of tending two of our grandkids for a week and

suddenly decided we wanted to see all of our grandkids together. So we

plopped our charges in the car and headed out on an adventure.

Diapers family stories life stories happy familyI had just fed Henry and had placed him on the floor-blanket. I had just pulled from the dryer to change his diaper when I discovered it.


The up-the-back soiling the shirt and - yes - the freshly laundered blanket type of blow-out. And yes, I discovered it the fun way.
