My daughter Lizzy's husband loves to can stuff. These are his green beans he canned last weekend. I took this picture on Monday, when we took a cross that Ted had made for Liz to hang on her living room wall. I saw Matt had all the green beans canned and sitting on the family room coffee table. I think he was going to write the dates on them.
He also had a bunch of cucumbers , he is going to make into pickles. He had just picked them from his garden. He grows lots of things himself. I know that Liz and Emma help him too. But Matt is the one that loves canning.
Here's Emma and her mommy, Lizzy. They are getting ready to go to school for orientation for Emma. She had her orientation on Monday evening and then her first day of school is today. Our Emma is growing up. She and her cousins , Savannah and Skylar are the last of the grandkids still in school. The years flew by....faster each year. Hug your little ones today , all too soon they will be grown.
We bought the stain for the deck floor, but it had rained on the deck, and now it must dry out again. We got a nice rain and even after the past two month of soooo much rain, we needed this one.
Hope all of you are heading into a weekend filled with summer fun. XO
