Happy 4th of July!!

Another busy weekend of hopefully fun is upon us!!

Saturday we are going out to a friends ranch for an early 4th BBQ.  Then on Sunday we have the Volunteer Fire Departments 4th of July Celebration!  We are having a big BBQ, carnival games, a slip and slide for the kids, a cake auction, a 50/50 raffle and more.  The night will end with a HUGE fireworks display!  It should be a lot of fun, but it will be a lot of work too - LOL.

My parents got in for a visit on Wednesday evening from Florida.  They brought me tons of fresh fruit and veggies too!  I put up a bunch of peppers and onions in the freezer already.  We have pineapple and watermelon in the dehydrator right now.  I have boxes and boxes of fresh tomatoes!!  I plan on putting some of them up in the freezer too as they hit the peak of ripeness.  Oh and fresh cantaloupe and watermelons are just begging to be eaten.  I love it!!

Have a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July everyone!!


  1. Sounds like you will have a great 4th!!!

    How long are your parents staying?

  2. Sounds yummy all that fresh fruit and veggies. Instead of freezing your tomatoes dehydrate them, put them in ziplock bags and then freeze them. They really keep well doing that.

    Enjoy the BBQ
    Happy 4th to you and yours

  3. I hope you had fun! Sounds like it was going to be. :) How long are your parents in for? How nice that they brought all that fruit! It is so good this time of year.

  4. I hope you had a great 4th! How long is your parents' visit? The fresh produce sounds amazing. You will be stocked up for the next few months.
