We really love ice cream. This is a roundup of some of the places we tried this summer!
This year marked our third Ribfest in Riverside Park. This was one of the first things we went out to do when we moved to Kamloops, and now we always make a point of going. It's become almost like a little Kamloops-iversary celebration for us. Misty Mountain is our personal favourite of all the ribbers, since we really like beef ribs, and they have the best sauce.
Little Forager has grown up so much already. It is hard to believe that his first birthday is coming up in a few months. This summer we discovered that the absolutely loves swings.
Later that summer we got a chance to visit Mr. Forager's family on their ranch in Saskatchewan. Little Forager absolutely loved meeting the horses.
It was great to have some time with them since we are not able to make the long trip out there as much as we would like.
This year I actually had some success with growing beets! This has been a goal of mine that for some reason has never been realized. This mix of different types of beets from Westcoast Seeds was a huge hit for me this year!
This summer was the most incredible year for fruit. Many people were blessed with overabundance and felt the need to share with us. We did not turn it down! I also picked up a steam juicer from the fruit stand that was closing down and made a whole lot of grape juice from free grapes! I am now excited to try to juice many other types of fruit. It has become one of my favourite ways to process fruit!
