I have been caught up in reading a cookbook called Prairie kitchen sampler by E.Mae fritz I got it at the antique store last week. It is a cookbook but also is a glimps into the life of a woman named Alice Mickish Hendrickson from around 1922 to 1980ish. Her story is fascinating telling of all the changes in the kitchen and the farm life plus sharing tons of recipes. I kinda had tunnel vision reading while we were driving over the weekend and have read every spare minute I could 🙂 I finally finished it tonight and Will wants to read it now. ( my aspiring chef ).
So we didn’t go to the zoo as planned instead we chose a small theme park called Indiana Beach in Monticello Indiana. We have been there many times and the kids all really love the place. There is a swimming beach with filtered water and a wide variety of rides and games for everyone to enjoy. My small ones are a bit of a handful getting back into the regular routine with all the travel of the past 2 weeks. They were in the Ozark mountains, home up north to Melissa’s folks back to us and the busy weekend we had. Saturday was theme park day and it was a great day with temperatures just right ,we did get a brief bit of rain but all went well. On Sunday we went to Hanging Rock Christian camp to celebrate family fun days which is held the first weekend in June every year. There were plenty of inflatable bounce houses and the like for the kids . Zip lining for the older kids, horses back rides and fishing and swimming not to mention all the food booths with everything you could think of to eat !! I took around 350 pictures along with Jereme and Melissa and Brian who have a bunch too so I will have to get them all downloaded and go through them to get them to show you 🙂 Today is Will’s 15th Birthday, Friday is Jordan and Melissa’s 5th wedding anniversary and Sunday is Heather’s 20th Birthday Whew!! tons to do 🙂 I have a bunch of emails yet to get to so if you’ve posted don’t think I’ve forgotten you. I have hopes of getting back to the norn here soon, I finally with the help Brian got the housework caught up today. I also took photos of my crafty haul from the antique store to share also with you. Forgive me for getting so behind. OK I need to get the girls around I promised them a movie tonight and they are antsy to get it started.
Love to you all and big hugs too 🙂
