Scavenger Hunt for August 8

Seeing Double
At the Rodeo for Ryan this week, these 2 little boys passed by, and I just knew I had to get their picture!  So adorable!

Fruit heavy on the tree is a beautiful sight!  Amidst the branches of green leaves, these apricots were hanging heavy and plentiful.  We picked plenty for eating and for canning.  My mom and I canned 18 quarts this week.  Hopefully, they turned out great!  We {I should say "mom" because she does all the processing} were having trouble with the pressure cooker.  Mushy fruit isn't great, and they were already quite soft by the time we got to canning.
Wide open spaces!  My kids, even Maverick, love going to Nana and Papa's house to just be able to run around outside without many worries.  The house is far from the road and there is little traffic.  So many places to explore!  This is the first year this oat field has been here, and it was harvested just a few days after this picture was taken.
Sweet Treats!  The bake sale of the rodeo was a sweet success!  Everything was packaged so cute and looked yummy!
Many of the tables at the rodeo were decorated with these mason jars and flowers.  Looks simple, but adds so much!  I should do this for my own table at home!

There is so much to be thankful for this week! This past week was filled with rodeo details, and most other things were pushed aside for the time being...

That mason jar with the flower is my favourite - so easy to do and looks beautiful.
