95 Quarts and Alligator Wrestling

During the last week of June, my cousin Jenny and her family came down and helped me can the apricots from our tree. Jenny and I ended up canning 95 Quarts of apricots on the hottest day of the year so far, 110 degrees! We had fun and the kids were a big help.

When we were about 2/3 of the way done Michael came home from work and decided the steamy hot kitchen was too much for him.  He decided to take a dip in the pool...
