David had to work this afternoon, so the boys and I went to Sauvie Island to a farm and picked blueberries. We also picked up a flat of cherries and a box of apricots. I think the boys ate their body weight in blueberries today. It is still early in the season so we just got a couple of pints of blueberries.
Here are the cherries and the apricots
I cut up cherries and apricots and put the in the dehydrator
I also made a batch of cherry-apricot jam. I have a Cranberry-Apricot bread I make during the holidays so I am going to make apricot jam and freeze it use with the bread. If I only had a bog to plant cranberries in I would be set.
I was going to let the boys stay up to watch neighborhood fireworks. At about 9:00, Liam asked to go to bed, I helped into his pajamas and he went into his room, climbed into bed and went to sleep quickly.
Christian went out with me and enjoyed watching the fireworks for a while. He kept asking me if I saw the fireworks when I big one would go off. He will be talking about that for a while. He had many questions about fireworks, how they work, why they are different colors, how they launch and so on. I suggested he ask daddy since daddy actually had experience with something other then sparklers. I have never been a big fan of fire or fireworks and never really played with them as a child.
