Keeping RainCloud Cool

this post is written by my daughter, aryn. i thought it would be fun and educational to include her on the blog this summer. this is the third post in her series called:

It is very hot where I live. I have a simple solution so my rabbit can keep nice and cool.
A Frozen Water Bottle!
I think this is a great and easy way to help my rabbit in the Summertime.
I usually put two in each day so she can be cool all day long.
One time I forgot to put one in and I thought she was going to die because of the heat.
But she didn't and ever since then I haven't forgotten.

All-Star Baseball

this week has been filled with baseball games!
a game every day since saturday. (except sunday.)
we have anothern tomorrow. 

i know anothern isn't even a word. it should read another one, but that's how some people talk around here. possibly myself. and i want to remember it. i like that kind of stuff.

and we are the hurricane tigers. hurricane said with a short u sound like fun. NOT a long a sound.

Family Camping

we went camping over the weekend.
our family, my brothers and sister and their families, all escaped to the nearby mountain.
it was very enjoyable.

there was a stream, some serious family olympics, outdoor fort building...
but no campfires.
a play was even performed. written by zoe, of course.

Apricot Jam

i picked apricots with my dad one morning a week and a half ago.

he picked me up early one morning, and we drove to the stake farm. we picked and chatted a little and filled our boxes, then drove back home. it took a little more than an hour.

i've been bottling and drying and making jam. i'll be giving some to him, of course.

i sure do like my dad.

i know there are lots of jam recipes out there. i'm just going to write down a few little notes for myself...
5 cups blended apricots
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 package fruit pectin
6 cups sugar

cook according to the directions in the pectin box.
yields 9 half-pints (filled to the bottom ring line)
