The next night, Rachel had another performance in Spokane.
(Her stage name is "Rawrly")

And this summer, I finally rode on Silverwood's newest ride, Aftershock. Yeah, freaky, gut-in-your-throat type of thrill ride- It was one of those "did that once, never have to do it again" type of experiences...Was I crazy, or what?
Here I am, going up. It's gonna be fun, right? (Notice that none of my kids went with me . . . and they make you take off your flip-flops!)
Fall got a jump-start by sending a freeze our way.
The red ripe tomatoes I picked today. Question- Do I do what I usually do, and pick all the green tomatoes and put them in newspaper-lined boxes and have them sitting in my house for weeks till they all ripen (in which case, their flavor is not nearly as rich)
We put up new porch rails and built new shutters (it looks a lot cuter IRL)
And they got to eat these ginormous hamburgers with my dad Meanwhile, this little girl was born, on Noelle's birthday! I had to make sure everything went well while he was gone.

Working out in the garden doesn't bother me. Some days I even enjoy it.
I will collect the eggs. (but that's Isaac's job, so I don't have to)
So you know what happened next, I am sure.
. . . on the other hand, if the occasional field mouse gets caught in the trap near their favorite point of entry, underneath the wood stove insert . . .
I will call for Isaac or Tanner to come and get rid of it.. . . there are exceptions to everything, now aren't there?

And of course, it ran over into the BBQ, but was great entertainment, so no one minded a bit.
Here is Isaac, doing his best.
Blow a little harder!
Isaac had the winning heat!
By this time, everyone is ready to eat . . . Pot Luck time!
