Rabbit in Mustard Sauce

Tonight I made rabbit for the first time.  The rabbit was good-the sauce was a bit strong though.  But it was good, and I was excited to try a new reciepe. It was also good that we finally put to use the rabbit meat that we raised.
The garden is doing well so far....outside of the cucmber beetles, and japanese beetles. Which destroyed my roses :(

My first garlic! I found out too late that the garlic scapes were good to eat.  But at least now I know for next year!

Blackberries will be here any day now....

Father's Day Hike

This Father's Day we went to Giant City State Park to go hiking.  We got to take our nephew along with us.  This park holds so many memories for my husband....therefore this was a fun day getting to listen to my husband's memories of coming to this same park as a kid.  It is filled with tons of rock formations, some God made, and some man made.

It's a LONG way down

Cody and our nephew were brave enough to try out Fat Man's Squeeze....and lived to tell about it. You wouldn't have guessed it from the drama they went through. :)  (Fat Man's Squeeze is a really small crack in between a bluff that  looks very difficult to get through!) 

In the end, we made it through the hikes we did, even though the humidity was crazy high and it was really hot.  Hopefully, the kids will remember the fun parts and not the heat, and they will tell their kids about the stories they learned.  :)
