Labor Day

Hello again!

I finally recovered from cheating death, and even managed to make the family trip up to Kentucky over labor day weekend.

S’s extended family – both his mother’s side and his father’s side – are from Kentucky. So every holiday, S’s family makes the 4 hour drive from Tennessee to Kentucky to visit relatives.

I may have mentioned previously that S is a fabulous gardener. Well it’s safe to say that gardening is in his genes:

(Blackberry vines, without thorns. Apparently this is their first year, so they didn’t have a harvest this year.)

(Okra plants! Theirs grew exceptionally taller than ours.)
