Our ward (church congregation) had some time scheduled at the cannery. So we met my friend Marcy there, donned our cool hair coverings, aprons, and gloves, and dug into macaroni, flour, dried carrots, and various other things. It was a good learning experience for the kids and they had great fun for the first hour. Then they got bored. Marcy's kids were really hard workers. I need my kids to hang out with her kids more often.
I have watched all of these kids grow up. In fact, I held Ryan (the girl in yellow) at church when she was a baby.
