The Kamiah Barbecue Days parade was amazing! Tons of entries and the streets were lined with people. Wow! I got to enjoy that, then rushed back to Grangeville for the beautiful wedding of Dylan Garrigus and Katie Hauger. Hard to believe that little blond, curly-headed toddler who was entertaining us at church with her sunglasses (those who were at the VBS program that year at the Nazarene church remember this) is now all grown up and married. Congrats to you!
It was a good rest of the weekend but if you’re like me you didn’t get nearly enough accomplished. Much to our youngest daughter’s dismay, Valor and I asked two random people if we could pick fruit from their trees (they were happy we stopped and said, “Yes!”) and so much of the weekend was spent preparing, drying and canning. That will continue the next couple of weeks. I hope your harvest is going well, too.
