Garden Fresh

I wish that my garden would flourish during the summer while I am home from school, but that never happens. I did get a few sweet peas, green beans, and lettuce early on. School is in full swing now and I am so busy and tired that I don't want extra things to do. But none the less, here is what I found in the garden this morning - cucumbers, green beans, spaghetti squash, and zucchini.
And on top of that I frozen 20 quarts of sweet corn this morning and into the afternoon.
While I was cleaning the corn Rebecca found plenty to do out on the deck. "I don't care what you say mom, I like to eat dirt!"

And while I was freezing corn Rebecca had fun getting into mischief in the house too.Now Rebecca is down for a nap and I need one too :)

Tubing Fun

Last weekend we decided last minute to head down to Lake Rathbun. It was nice to just get away for a little while and enjoy the calm of the lake. We borrowed another tube and realized how fun it is to double tube. Here is Dan and Scott tubing at sunset.
This next picture looks kind of funny, but Dan and Scott had just switched tubes while being pulled. It was quite funny to watch :)Dan and Rebecca enjoyed a nice slow troll behind the boat. Rebecca doesn't sit still for much and she was pretty squirmmy in tube, so the ride wasn't too long.
I guess Rebecca would rather drive the boat than be pulled behind it :)
