We had a busy family day on July 4. Dean finished the bathroom and I did house work and baking. We made mt pies, s'mores and singing apples over the fire for supper then watched Ephrata's fireworks.
Tristan roasting apples over the fire. You roast them until the juice begins to squirt out and the apple is soft. Then peel it, roll in cinnamon sugar mixture and enjoy! They are a new favorite of ours. Taste almost like hot apple pie.
If you don't have chocolate bars for your s'mores, try peanut butter cups. It might be a good idea to have a cup of coffee to enjoy alongside these s'mores as they are really sweet.
One of our cats had a litter of kittens. Joseph is so perplexed as to where she got them. I tried to explain but I obviously wasn't doing a good job as he thought for a bit then said, "She must have grown them overnight." Our cat population is growing rapidly. We had one cat which was fine. The Tristan found a litter and tamed them. Three cats still wasn't to bad but then two more showed up and now we have yet another litter. I don't mind if they stay out at the shop and in the woods but when they get in my flower beds and sit on my porch and meow through the screen door, I get a little defensive. I can't complain though as the children spend hours holding them. Joseph put one in the pool. He couldn't understand why his cat wouldn't like swimming!
