Happy Independence Day to all of you! We celebrated the holiday with a backyard cookout and campout (sort of - the kids didn't make it through the actual sleeping in the tent part) with our neighbors, but couldn’t find a parade in our area today. For some strange reason the parade is tomorrow when everyone goes back to work. Our CSA seems to be in full swing already, we've gotten lots of greens, summer squash, and broccoli to name a few. We got our first beets of the season last week and I am very excited to eat them. Next weekend we are hoping to go to the local waterski show on Sunday as we have not been to it yet this year. We like to pack a picnic dinner and hang out by the lake for the evening. The kids are fascinated by the show! Summer is filled with so many fun outdoor events and lots of fresh veggies.
