Garden Veggies

Garden Goodies from my parents!  The tomatoes are huge!  Keep in mind that the bag of green beans is a gallon ziplock bag.  We had BLT's and we only used 1 tomato!

This was his drawing of a batting cage...check out that perspective!

This was a sketch of Mr. Rogers...

 Here was Luke's picture of the word "Knitting."
 Here is Ben's "Justin Bieber"

 Well, we headed north to our cottage for the was the last visit of the summer!  As usual, we had FUN!  We played our share of board's Ben's drawing of an Indian Warrior!

Anna and her friend spent lots of time in the pool...temps were in the high 80's!

 The dogs met new friends at the dog park...
 We filled our bellies with lots of junk food, of course. Here's Ben with his taco omelet and 2 buttermilk pancakes.  YES, he ate it all!! Oink oink!
