Zipping and More......

How many of you have ever been zip-lining?  Doesn't it look like so much fun?  

This would be something that I would LOVE to do......  I could just see myself breezing down the long trails of lines.......zipping from tree to tree!!  The one thing that I wouldn't like would be coming in for the landings.   

This is Kelsey.......Tyler's precious girlfriend.

Here is Tori.....she is being a little bit more daring!  No Hands!

Here's the take off!!

and they zoom as high as 350 feet from the ground. is the more!

So, our church held a BBQ Cook-Off this afternoon.    Sam and I entered brisket, baby back ribs, chicken and beans.

I cooked the beans and Sam did all of the smoking....(on the cooker)

In my opinion.......I cooked the very worse tasting beans that I have ever cooked.
I should have stayed with how I always cook my beans (just like my mom taught me) BUT..........NO, I had to try to dress them up a bit.

I would include the exact recipe, but I have no idea what the EXACT recipe is.

I do know that I added grilled onions, rotel and a few spices, along with BBQ sauce and a tad bit of ketchup.   I also threw in some brown sugar.

To my big surprise......... I won first place!!!!!

I was shocked.....   

My Prize?    A $50.00 gift card to our local Brookshire's Grocery Store!

I'm a happy camper!!

Hope all of you have enjoyed a relaxing Holiday!!

Wow, your photos are great. I have always wanted to try zip-lining. I just do not have the nerve.

Well, look at you! Way to go and figure out that recipe and post it for the rest of us girlies. Happy September!

Shug - thanks for your prayers for Lisa AND for being my FB friend, too! Your cookout sounds absolutely delish! We love our beans spicy hot, so I'm sure you deserved that blue ribbon and the prize! Congrats ~~~

Yes I'm looking forward to some cooler weather - we simply have to get together sometime!

I hope I didn't post a comment twice - my first one disappeared...

Congrats on the win, Shug!!! I could have used you two over here to help cook!! LOL!

I can't decide if I would like that zip-lining or be scared to death. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Oh the zipping looks like fun, but I'd get dizzy. Congrats on your win! The beans sound good to me.
