Fighting in the Garden

Erica-1 vs  Bees - 0
I've been fighting this for about 5 days in my garden.  Some type of wild bee nest...This hive/group was on my tomato plant and the next morning had moved to ONE stalk of corn...
This morning I was finally able to get 2 tomatos off this vine w/out bees around.  Praying we got them cleaned out for good.

In the middle of NO WHERE

On our way to the lake/camping trip, we had to drop off a tractor for my in-laws.  Maddie and I were following Brent and the boys in our truck and we were on this little 50 mph county road and we pop over a hill and we see this.....

mansion/house/bed and breakfast???

truly out in the middle of NO WHERE....
I soooo wonder what the inside looks like?????

1st Annual Camping Trip

This weekend our family spent the weekend at Melvern Lake with my parents and siblings and families.  We had a great time despite the weather and flies.  We were definately a crew.  3 campsites and 4 tents between all of us.  This was the first time G, M, & O had ever been camping and for me a long time!  Weather was Hot and Humid, but I kinda expected that, Friday night was miserable in the tent, but Saturday night a cool front came through and brought a little shower and cooled things off a bit.Our tent held and no puddles in the tent.  Sleeping was a little better and Sunday am we awoke to cloudy skies but no rain and not all that muddy.

Hubby and I (maddie took this pic and rolled her eyes the whole time!)

This is what lack of sleep and too much humidity will do to a person!

All grandkids headed for our nature walk Sunday morning.

Where does it say your 3 year old can't have an ENTIRE can of pop at 9am??  We were camping!
We had a great time and can't wait to do it again-soon!
