Apricot Season

So I have been wanting to can this year and I havent done it since i was a kid. So my friend Jess
and I got some apricots together and my mom helped me can them and make apricot/pineapple jam.. YUM!

We did it while Dad and Adam went to the Apple store.

With the remaining I am going to make fruit leather. I'll let you know how it comes out.:) ps thanks so much mom!

Trip to Pennslyvania

So Ryan and I went to Pennsylvania to watch my sisters kids while her and her hubby went on trek. We had a blast . Unfortunately i came home and realized that I only got pics of my other sister who helped out and non of my sis Paula who was on Trek. And she's the one who flew me there. Sorry Paula! We had so much fun with you though.

Well Here's what I gave Ryan to get her through the airplane ride.
Dora Back Pack
My little Pony
Crayons/ Notepad
Downloaded Dora Episodes on Ipod Touch
Childrens Headphones (that restrict the volume.!! awesome)
And some candy

Here's what she looked like watching it.. She LOVED it.

Here's Ryan playing the chimes at Bonnies.

Here's Ryan playing the piano with Tristen at Paulas house.

Pennsylvanias Finest!

I love Pennsylvania... except for maybe this. Spotted leaving Hershey Chocolate World. "Gag what a tool!" haha


Hershey was where I first saw Dave Matthews Band in concert and i've been hooked ever since. So a moment of silence for Dave....
Paula, Bonnie and I packed up and went to Hershey Chocolate World

Ryan was facinated by what she saw.

This is on the ride.
It was a great trip.

Bike Riding

We all went bike riding around Paula's house. Look at all these kids ready to go! Thanks Abby and Jenna for the help.

I had to single these two out because their faces were so darn funny.! haha

Sisters.. some say we look alike and some say we look nothing alike. what do you think?
