Green Beans & A Lake House!

What a wonderful weekend we had - nice and long celebrating with family and friends!
We celebrated our first College Football WIN of the season on Saturday with both Michigan and Michigan State winning.  YAH HOO - GO BLUE!!! 
Sunday, dad was feeling well enough that both sets of parents and Mrs. M (my honorary g-ma) came out for a YUMMY FAB BBQ.  We had some super yummy chicken, brats, homemade french fries, the BEST BEST BEST corn on the cob (yep, gonna be freezin' that this week!!).  We had more food than we knew what to do with!  What a great day!  It did my heart good to be able to clean the corn in the kitchen with my dad helping me.  He even gained 2 pounds!!!  We had such a great time with family yesterday - There's just something about letting THEM enjoy one another's company (our family is a bit different - both sets of parents get along and heck, we even celebrate the holidays together and for that we are blessed!!)

Last Saturday, my folks got what we're jokingly calling their "Lake House" (Sounds better than 5th Wheel) to do a little traveling in.  It will be the "Beach House" if we're parked at the beach :)  We had so much fun with them on Saturday when we met them so we could see it and heck, it was even delivered on Saturday. We didn't know they'd be delivering it that quick. We're already looking forward to a few little mini-trips as my dad continues to recover.
At the dealership
At The Dealership (Dog and All)
(How Happy do these three look?? - Dad, Mrs. M and Mom. . . oh and Royy the dog).

Of course last weekend, we picked more beans and a crazy amount of tomatoes both roma and cherry tomatoes.
So, of course last Sunday we spent the day canning green beans.  Yep, another dozen jars!  WHEW!
Tomorrow we will finish freezing some of the most amazing corn we've had the ENTIRE summer!!  YUMM-O!  Next weekend, we will most likely be canning peaches and freezing raspberries (and celebrating my mom's birthday!!)
I hope you all had a WONDERFUL holiday weekend.  I hope that you got to spend time enjoying your family and friends and the last little bit of Summer.
Of course, it's back to the grind tomorrow....but at least it's a short week.  That's a definitely BONUS!


  1. Oh Min, I'm so happy to hear that your dad is up to traveling! Friends of ours have an RV and they love it. They go camping every weekend!

  2. Hooray for the RV and the adventures to come! They all look so cozy!



Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little sliver of Paradise.
I love reading your comments!!!
