While we enjoyed visiting my parents for 5 days, we are also so glad to be home. My parents live in a very big city, in a huge metropolitan area and honestly, it gets a little overwhelming for me! I guess I've just lived in a small town for too long. It was so nice to see my parents and brother though.

Big cities though usually have big things to do- like the zoo!
One of the best parts of our trip was taking a day to drive up to see my grandma and grandpa.

My grandma lives in a sweet town that's about 25 times smaller than ours. It's population is 250 and there is a small grocery/hardware store, a church, a post office, and a gas station. I love it there! I wish that it wasn't a 10 hour drive from our home. We'd certainly visit more often if it were closer.
We got back Monday night and I promptly got back into the swing of things. I collected eggs from the chickens, cleaned the pig pen and canned 7 quarts of peaches. Oh, how I missed being home!

the UPS man's tomatoes

We love our UPS man. We'll call him G. He comes by our house quite often. When you live near nothing, you shop online a lot. Especially for fabric. (Let's keep that between you and me though.)
When G drove up today I thought to myself, "Why is he here? I didn't order anything, did I?" I see him walk off his truck with a box. Hm, o.k., I still don't remember ordering anything. I go outside to greet him and guess what he has for me? This...

He grows more tomatoes than they can eat so he figured he share the wealth. Sweet. And G and his wife just had a new baby boy, so that explains the box.
Can you guess what I spent my day doing?
We are truly blessed in our community to have great friends!
