Summer 2010

I was planning on posting on my “clean” house but decided to post on our life in the country instead.  We had such a great time last night that I thought it would be fun to share on the evening instead.

Yesterday after church we went to the park.  After the kids had ran around like crazy for a while, we went for a walk down by the water and found a ton of clams.  We picked out some of the nicer looking ones and brought them home with us.  When we got home we decided to have a camp fire and have supper outside.  While we were getting the fire going and supper done I did a Jelly Bean tasting “party” with the kids.  They got to try all the gourmet flavors.  AKA, the icky ones 🙂  They didn’t like all the flavors but they loved eating all the jelly beans. Candy is candy, no matter how icky it is!

At the end of the day we opened some of the clams and talked about what they were, how and what they eat, and the parts of the clam.  It was a great day considering we had none of it planned but going to church.

I’ve also discovered I talk more though pictures.  Hope you don’t mind.
