Small Town Fun

Last weekend we celebrated Pioneer days. We had some friends and family join us, and we went to a parade in Snowflake, a rodeo in Taylor, and watched fireworks at the park. The weather was great and the company was awesome. I know Taylor isn't exactly a destination place, but every now and then, the town can throw a pretty great party. I know I say this all the time, but I'll say it again, I love living in a small town.
Adam's sister Heather came with her kids, and Adams brother Travis brought up his family. The kids all had so much fun with their cousins. I think cousins make the best kind of friends. Heather brought up a little motorcycle for the kids to ride. Eliza and Caleb learned how to ride it and Sarah learned how not to ride it. She's O.K. but I think it will be a while before she gets on a motorcycle again :)
In other news, our garden is doing great. We are harvesting peas, zucchini, squash, cucumber, cilantro, and dill. In a couple of weeks we'll be picking tomatoes and corn and carrots We'll see how the watermelon and cantaloupe do but they aren't going to be ready for a while yet.
The Trio are are counting down the days until school starts. (so am I.) I'll enjoy a couple hours to myself each day but I'm not quite sure what I'll do with myself yet. Any Ideas?
