Busy Month

It has been a busy month. Kam and Lisa moved from Miss. Kipp came out to help Kam move. I drove his car and we had a very adventerous trip. With breaking down to the tower of wonder. I had a great visit with Kory and Tiff and Hailey. It was so good to be able to see her. I hope to get out more often. Rich had a great time with his motorcyle ride with his brothers to the grand canyon. Then we had a great time at peach days in Hurricane with parade and navaho tacos. We got back then went to Nashville for the NAGUS convention. It was great. With lots of food and trinkets and the Grand Ole Oprey. Rich is now in DC. I have enjoyed my quite time at home. Here are some pictures of our last month.

Road Trip

Well tomorrow we are going to Mississippi. Rich will be there for 1 day then drive back to Tenn. I will stay and help Kam get ready to move. Kipp is going to come and help us drive to Utah. Yeah! A road trip with my 2 sons. That should be very interesting and long. It is around 30 hours to drive. Then I will stay with Kory and get to see little Hailey. Rich will come out around the 30th visit, then get together with his brothers to go on a Wild Hogs ride, on motorcyles. I can't wait to hear about that adventure. Then we will go to Hurricane's Peach Days and leave on Sunday the 6th. So by then I will be glad to get home. We have been having fun in Tenn. Riding our bikes and walking my dog. We went to a Smokies ballgame last night and it was a perfect night to sit and relax. We decided that baseball is such a slow game but it is relaxing. Here are a few pictures.

finally new pictures

Well we have been having fun. Kallee and her little group came up last week and we had fun. We went swimming in the river and at the fun Alcoa pool. Kam has been studying for his bar exam. He goes this weekend to take it. Rich has been traveling some the past two weeks. I went down to Miss. for a few days. Saw little Ellie. She is growing, but has the same busy personality. We are planning to go to Utah the end of August. So I will get to see Hailey. Lisa got a job in Salt Lake so they will be moving the middle of August. I may help Kam drive out there, since I was planning on going anyway. Here are some pictures of us having fun in Tennessee.

Tomato Cucumber Salad

I found this recipe and tried it. I thought it was good and would be a good summer dish when all you that grow gardens have a lot of cucumbers and tomatoes. I liked it better right after I mixed it up. If you let it sit it gets soggy.
4 roma or vine ripe tomatoes
1 medium cucumber
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp sugar
2 tsp chopped fresh basil
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preparation:Slice tomatoes and cucumber thinly and place in a medium bowl. Combine vinegar, oil and sugar. Drizzle over sliced tomatoes and cucumber. Toss, then sprinkle with chopped basil. Refrigerate or serve at room temperature.
