We did get a chance to pick some sour cherries at a local farm. It was 50/50 picking. Which means the farm keeps have of what we pick and we keep the other half for free. We managed to pick 6 ice cream buckets in about an hour.

I canned 16 pints of cherry pie filling. Larry loves his cherry cheesecake!
Larry and Jacob worked on a small project one day too. They built a little front deck on the house.
I didn't get a picture of the finished project, but it turned out really great.
July wasn't the funnest time for the kids and I. Our house ended up getting very invaded by bats while Larry was out of town for 5 days. We knew we had lots of bats in the attic and they could make their way into the house and we were trying to fix the problem. But it seemed we actually made it worse. We ended up running out of the house in our pajamas at 5:30 am and slept in a hotel until Larry made it home. We think we have all their entry points sealed now. They have migrated for the winter. But, we will see next May when they return to have their babies in our attic if they can get back in. I have a feeling they will find a way, but hopefully not.
So, that was our July. Thanks for stopping by!
