"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

Saturday we do a family chore together, this last
weekend we cleaned out the car, van and the truck!
It was a big job, but the girls did great!!
When the chores were done, we loaded up and headed
up to Sterling's house to return the 4 wheelers, and had lunch
at Chili's (YUMMY) Then went for a drive!!
Raychel spotted this beautiful deer that was
watching us!!
We saw some beautiful country!!Love this time of year!
We saw a yard full of geese!!

We were very high up this mountain that the
trees had already lost their leaves, but
it was still a beautiful sight!

This pond was at the top of the mountain,
the reflection on the pond was beautiful.

There's nothing better then getting our chores done together,

so we can play together!!


Getting ready to go huntingTravel in style!!
How many does it take to tie down 2 four wheelers?
2 grown brothers and a 5 year old girl to supervise!

The View

Wild horses!!
If you look close you can see more
wild horses.

A great watering hole to attract animals

They didn't get an animal, but
Ward and his brother had a great time.

Kindergarten Field Trip

Last week Jolene brought home a permission slip for a Field Trip to a Cornfield Maze!! As I was filling it out she was so excited because they would get to ride the school bus!! As she was dancing around singing, "The Wheels On The Bus",
(it's the only bus song she knows!) she
stopped and asked if I would like to come with her
and her class? Of course!! I was touch she wanted me there.

We got to listen to Farmer Charles talk about his corn maze,

We got to go walking through the maze
with great friends.

Stopping to read the question, if we answered
right, we'd know which way to go.

Following the leader!!

A great photo moment!!

A very beautiful, warm fall day!!

Jackie and Jolene enjoying donut holes and juice after the walk.

Another great photo moment!

Great Friends!!
