my DIL and I took Hotrod to the sprinkle park this morning...
we were the first ones there...
it was really nice...
I didn't bring my camera...
I just wanted to splash and have fun....

sometimes I have to remember to be apart of things...
not just take photos of everyone ....
I'm trying to balance both....

my dill looks really tall from this angle...
I picked some and put in cucumbers with vinegar and onions...
it was really tastey...

my tomatoes have just about finished...
we have really had a bumber crop this year...
tomorrow I'm going to make another batch of pico....
I have watched some oldie but goodie movies this week...
Bad News Bears...
Thelma and Louise...
LaBamba....

Sprinkle Park? Where is that?
I have never grown dill but I love the taste. Will have to try it next year. Or do a container garden of herbs when we get the camper down to the RV place.

I know what you mean about photos. I tend to document everything! I used to say Amber and Ben had a good childhood because I have PROOF!!

I like the thought of sprinkle park, it sounds cool and refreshing. I love the angle on the dill, great shot. Your dill salad sound great too.
Yep, sometimes we have to put the camera down and enjoy the moment.

Yes, I think it's good to sometimes forget the camera. I did that one year when we went to the beach.....actually, I felt lost without my camera, but it was also freeing.

I love the name 'sprinkle park'. ...sounds like fun.

that is one big dill plant. tall as a tree... amazing what the camera can do. great idea to leave the camera home. i do find that i focus on things to snap if i have it. i need to remember your advice, like go to the beach with Bob and leave the camera home. have not done that since 2002.

Wisdom!

Leave the camera at home, some times. Enjoy what's going on, and make memories. You'll always have plenty of pic memories taken. :-)

-chuckle- Dill pic, taken at a *sneaky* angle. See, you are young and can bend down and kneel down and stuff..... To get super-sexy-cam-angles. Mmmmmmm, I can't. -grin-

LOL...I just make cucumbers & onion salad in vinegar with (ugh bottled) dill--didn't think to grow some--next year!

Deb...I'm so behind! Forgive me! You made some great comments on my posts. I just hadn't been by yet to see yours since my surgery! Gotta say, pico sounds great! I started my tomatoes from seed later than I should have, and they are still small plants, so I drool every time I think of a fresh garden tomato! :-) My cucumbers are about done in this heat, but my squash is still going like crazy. My largest plant is five feet across and three feet high! I just canned some squash! We're getting plenty to eat and can. My okra plants are just coming up, and also I have four lima bean plants and a few other things. Anyway, have a great week with this "cooling" trend....we're supposed to get it soon too, though today the heat index is 120 from what I heard. YUK! :-)

A sprinkle park? I think I know what that is but not sure.
