Photo Summary of July

Well it's August and I have not been here blogging in a while. The roller coaster ride (see previous post) is winding down and I finally feel like blogging again.  Won't go into the details, suffice it to say, the nausea is subsiding, although another ride is on the horizon. Life never stops!

So, ignoring the low points, today I just present a few photographs of the HIGH-lights of life in the last month.  First, the Fourth of July party at my daughter's house--bounce house and all:

Including the jello desserts that I made!

Then there was the berry picking trip:

Eating more than picking! :)

Then last weekend was a birthday pool party for one of my grands!  Eleven of my grands were there! Fun!

Homemade berry/nectarine Birthday Pie!

Well, that's my summer activities so far, 
what have you been up to?


  1. I bet the bounce house was a hit with the kids :)
    The jello dessert you made looks great! How did you make the white stripes?

  2. Such a great looking forth of july goodies:) so yummy! But I'm missing my blueberries... my old house had some blueberries bushes on backyard and we used to pick them around this time of the year:)
    lovely pictures!

  3. I want to dig into that pie! I would love to go on a berry trip, I've been seeing them on some blogs and they seem to be super fun.

  4. Those pies look gorgeous. I would love a piece of one of those!

  5. It sounds like a lot going on in your part of the world! I'm still waiting for spring to take hold so I can get my planting done!
