Last week we drove to Clarksville to pick a little bit of heaven
(with a bonus visit with my wonderful Grandpa, aunt, and cousins!)
|Some of our helpers.
The peaches are fantastic this year, so worth the drive.
There are so many and they are so abundant and sweet!

Of course all the kitchen counters covered with peaches means
I had to get busy putting them away…
(Peaches turn quickly if you’re not careful!)
So I made peach pie,
Two batches of peach jam…
|First batch of Peach Spiced Jam
Some canned peaches…
And also a beautiful fruit salad
and several quart bags of frozen sliced peaches to use later!
It wouldn’t be bad if I wasn’t allergic to fruit…
It’s really hard to not eat some!
Also, Johnson County has a beautiful new outdoor recreational area
so we checked it out. There water park is only $6 and nicer than anything we
have in the Central AR area. The kids had a blast. They are working on an indoor
pool that looks like it will rival anything here! I’m a bit jealous!
