Join Marian and Alan for a healthy picnic by the creek. Everything’s going well until Marian hears a bull frog and gets a little nervous.

Aspen took some pictures of Carolina throwing up some blooms from the desert willow tree. I visited makeagif.com to turn them into this funny gif file.

Carolina was having a little fun today. She was conducting some experiments in the kitchen. Then she typed up her results.

Crazy Pool Antics

Sunday, July 27, 2014 –

The Phipps kids came over Sunday afternoon to help us slaughter Aspen’s meat chickens. (I’ll link to her post about that when she publishes it) While the boys were doing the dirty work, Stockton and Josiah had the pool to themselves…well almost…

You have to be ready to defend your territory from wasps!

After the chickens were all dispatched, then the big kids got in on the fun.

Desperate to Cool Off

DSC_0518

Friday, June 6, 2014

In an attempt to find a way to cool off in the extreme heat we’ve been having, Stockton dug this makeshift pool and lined it with a tarp. Believe it or not it does help to even just get your feet cooled off a little bit. You’ll notice in the background that we do have an above ground pool, but haven’t gotten the salt and other supplies yet to get it put up for the season.
