Up to get another busy Friday started. After chores and breakfast I took a walk and sweated plenty before I got back inside.
I baked 6 caramel, 2 chocolate, and 4 pound cakes before lunch.
Daughter brought g-daughter I by to stay here so she and Josh ,who was taking the afternoon off, could go to the pool. It is just too hot for the baby out there.
She was very good today  and took her bottle like she does it all the time and  this was only the second time !

After they picked her up hubbie and I watched the news and then did chores. It has been another rain free day but a July hot 92 degrees for a high.
I finished the evening in the kitchen icing cakes and getting things ready for market.
Back in July of 1987 we were a very active family with many weekend trips to lake Hartwell where we had bought into a campground called Carolina Landing and we had a camper there. This is the kids in front of the camper that served us well for several years.

We left our camper at the campground and pulled our boat back and forth. This is the boat we had back then.
The kids always enjoyed these lake trips.

We also loved going the Cades Cove in Tennessee and made a trip over there that July.

We always passed through Cherokee and the boys liked the pony rides.

Daughter was upset because she wasn't big enough for the ponies and had to choose a different ride.

We also had a big herd of cattle back then and this is some of them as the kids helped feed.

Our Norwegian Elkhound named Helga.
There was also an article in the local newspaper about the Curb Market that month. My mother was a member and sold her crafts in there back then. Ersie Davis shown in the picture was my mother's best friend .

Thankful once again for the wonderful memories these pictures evoke and for the blessings of this day.
God Bless and Good Night.
