Nectarine and Raspberry Salad

We went to Illinois for Labor Day weekend to visit my family. We had a great time, but of course the trip went too quickly. I am sorry I haven’t updated the blog, we were busy playing and my dad’s internet connection is so slow! We live in the boonies and the connection isn’t that great:)


One of the highlights of our trip was meeting our five month old niece, Ramona. She is such a doll. My brother and his wife spent most of the weekend with us so I had time to become the favorite auntie:)

We also played tennis, had a bbq, met up with some friends, did some baking, and relaxed. Josh’s highlight was probably flying a plane! Our good family friends own a plane and Josh went up for a ride-I was too scared to go, but Josh LOVED it. He took over the controls and even flew the plane for awhile. I am glad he had fun.


My stepmom made this nectarine raspberry salad for our bbq and I loved it. The raspberries and nectarines were ripe and juicy. The dressing was wonderful as well. I am glad she was willing to share the recipe, because I can’t wait to make it again! I will post some of our baking adventures soon. My dad makes the best bread!

We had a great trip! I will try to catch up on my blogging this week.
