Camping at Strawberry Res 2009

DO THEY EVER GROW UP..??
LAST SUMMER WE WENT CAMPING FOR
BART'S ANNUAL BIRTHDAY PARTY,
IT WAS RAINY AND CHILLY,
BART DECIDED WE NEEDED TO HANG A TARP
OVER OUR EATING AREA.
THERE WERE ALL KINDS OF YOUNG GUYS
TO CLIMB THE TREES TO HANG THE TARP
BUT "NO" BART COULD NOT LET THEM SHOW UP
HIS TREE CLIMBING SKILLS.. HAHA
SO UP THE TREES HE WENT..
I REALLY DON'T THINK SOME MEN EVER GROW UP..
BUT WE WERE DRY
AS LONG AS WE TOOK A BROOM TO THE TARP EVERY 5 MINUTES..
WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND





MATT CLIMBED UP THIS BROKEN LOG
TO HANG THE LOW SIDE OF THE TARP,
I THINK THE LOG BROKE JUST AS HE WAS DONE.

BART AFTER HE FELL OUT OF THE LAST TREE..
ACE WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME
RUNNING OFF WITH THE ROPE.
BART AND SOME OF THE BOYS WENT OUT IN MATT'S
BOAT TO FISH ON THE LAKE..
IT STARTED TO RAIN, OTHER BOATS WERE PASSING THEM
BY TO GET BACK TO THE DOCK, MATT'S FISHING
BOAT JUST HAD A LITTLE TROLLING MOTOR ON IT,
SO IT WAS NOT VERY FAST. NEEDLESS TO SAY THE
GARBAGE BAGS THEY TOOK FOR RAIN PONCHOS DID NOT WORK
VERY WELL AND THE GUYS CAME BACK DRENCHED THROUGH.
IT WAS ANOTHER CLOSE CALL IN THE ADVENTURE
WE CALL : LIFE WITH BART.. :)

FISHING ON THE LOGAN

WHILE WE WERE VISITING UTAH THIS PAST
WEEKEND. WE TOOK OUR OLDEST
GRANDSON FISHING ON THE LOGAN RIVER.
NOW I DON'T KNOW HOW WELL MOST OF YOU
KNOW THE PETERSON'S, BUT YOU
PROBABLY KNOW THAT THEY ARE
VERY COMPETITIVE... AFTER I CAUGHT
THE FIRST FISH AND LET ACE REEL IT IN,
I MOVED UP RIVER A FEW FEET.
I CAST MY FLY INTO A GREAT RIPPLE
AND SURE ENOUGH A LARGE
CUTTHROAT ROUNDED OVER MY FLY.
I SET THE HOOK AND I MISSED.. ( I RARELY MISS)
AND I HEARD BART MAKE A COMMENT
THAT I WAS GETTING SLOW. I CAST AGAIN
AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED. I DID THAT
ABOUT 6 TIMES. BART HAD CAUGHT A
FEW LITTLE ONES THAT HE LET ACE REEL IN.
WE WERE GETTING READY TO GO DOWN STREAM
WHEN I WENT TO HOOK MY FLY ON MY POLE,
AND TO MY FRUSTRATION IT WOULD NOT HOOK.
THE HOOK PART OF MY FLY HAD BEEN BROKE OFF.
OH THE THINGS THOSE PETERSON'S WILL
DO TO WIN...!!!!!!
MATTHEW AND TREAVER STOPPED
BY ON THEIR WAY DEER HUNTING
AND MADE FUN OF ME... SO I HAD BART
THROW A ROCK AT THEIR FEET TO GET
THEM WET.. IT WORKED, IT SPLASHED THEM GOOD.
THEY YELLED THAT BART WAS LUCKY
THAT I WAS BY THEM OR THEY WOULD
RETURN THE FAVOR... THEN BART TOLD
THEM THAT I WAS THE ONE THAT TOLD THEM
TO THROW THE ROCKS...
SO YOU GUESSED IT...
ROCKS CAME FLYING AT ME..
THEY GOT MY HAIR WET..!!!!
AND I THINK I MIGHT HAVE BROKE A NAIL... HAHA

FYI: THE DATE IN INCORRECT ON THE PICS
MY CAMERA WAS STUCK ON THIS DATE..:)

OUR YARD, FOGGY JULY MORNING, BABY QUAIL

MOST MORNINGS WE HAVE ANYWHERE FROM
5-25 QUAIL IN OUR YARD
ON THIS MORNING WE HAD A LOT OF BABY QUAIL
I COUNTED 21 QUAIL AND ONE TWEETY BIRD.
THIS TWEETY BIRD WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE QUAIL
EATING OUT OF IT'S BIRD HOUSE.
IT KEPT CHASING THE QUAIL AWAY.
IT WAS FUN TO WATCH.

THIS LOOKS LIKE A GREAT FATHER AND SON MOMENT. :)
WE WOKE UP TO FOG IN LATE JULY.
YOU CAN BARELY SEE THE FOG RAINBOW
THAT APPEARED TO BE HOVORING OVER THE HOUSE.
THE PICTURE DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE,
IT WAS COOL.




THE FINISHED FRONT YARD.
BART IS A PERFECTIONIST WHEN IT COMES
TO HIS LAWNS. THEY HAVE TO BE LEVEL
AND PERFECT BEFORE HE WILL PLANT.
AND IT PAYS OFF WITH A BEAUTIFUL
FINISHED LAWN.
I BET HE IS GLAD THAT THAT PROJECT IS DONE.
WE HAVE A WONDERFUL YARD THAT WE CAN ENJOY.

UPDATED JUST LIKE YOU ASKED...!!!!!!

OKAY LORA... JUST LIKE YOU ASKED...
YOU SAID: UPDATE YOUR BLOG
WITH CUTE PICTURES OF ME....
HAHAHA
HOPE IT MEETS YOUR CRITERIA

The Yard is almost there... Just a few more projects... YEAH..!!!!!!!

THIS PAST WEEKEND BART AND I
SPREAD 25 TON OF ROCK
AROUND IN OUR GARDENS.
IT WAS WINDY AND RAINY
BUT THE DOWNPOURS SEEMED TO DANCE
ALL AROUND US.
LIGHTENING AND THUNDER
FLASHED ON ALL SIDES.
IT DID NOT START TO RAIN ON US UNTIL
MONDAY NIGHT AS WE WERE
TURNING OFF THE PORCH LIGHTS
AND LOCKING UP.
WE STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT TO DO.
WE WILL BE HAPPY WHEN IT IS ALL DONE.
EVEN IF IT MEANS I HAVE TO MOW THE LAWN...:)







ON MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND,
WE WENT TO UTAH FOR SEVERAL THINGS.
GRANDMA'S 75TH BIRTHDAY,
RUSTY'S BLESSING DAY,
BREAKFAST ON MOTHER'S DAY,
MOTHER'S DAY PARTY'S

WORKING IN FRANK & KAYLA'S YARD

FRANK RAN THE TRENCHER

THIS IS JUST A SAMPLE OF THE FUN BART HAS...

NOTICE HOW CLOSE HE COMES TO THE DOOR OF MY CAR..

I WAS TRYING TO GET ACE HOME TO WESTPOINT SO

I COULD BABYSIT ACE AND RUSTY WHILE

THEIR MOMMY AND DADDY WENT OUT ON A DATE.

BUT PAPA KEPT HIM A GOING ON THE BOBCAT... HOW FUN

ACE SANG WHEELS ON THE BUS ALL THE WAY HOME...

I LOVE FLOWERS AND GARDENING

I LOVE TO GARDEN
AND I LOVE FLOWERS
I HAVE TO PLANT MY FLOWERS
IN POTS HERE IN
PUEBLO WEST.
BUT IT STILL
GIVES ME A CERTAIN PEACE
WHEN I AM DIGGING AND PLAYING
IN THE DIRT.
AND THEN THIS IS WHAT YOU GET






BEAUTY

MY LITTLE RUSS "BABY" T

MY RUSS " BABY " T
AS HIS BROTHER ACE CALLS HIM.
HE IS SUCH A FUN CUTE BABY.
I CAN'T WAIT TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH
RUSTY AND ACE
IN JUNE.. :)
OH.. AND THE REST OF MY KIDS.. HAHA

OUCH..!!!!! THIS POST NOT FOR THE SQUIMISH.. :)

ABOUT A MONTH AGO.. MY HUSBAND,
THE "GENERAL MANAGER"
WAS MANAGING A GEAR BOX AT WORK.
ABOUT 1/2 HOUR AFTER A SAFETY MEETING
ON PINCH POINTS MIND YOU...
WELL...
THE GEAR BOX SLIPPED OFF THE SUPPORT
AND YOU GUESSED IT..
PINCHED BART'S FINGER..
CUTTING IT ALL BUT OFF.
IT BROKE IN TWO
JUST PAST THE 1ST KNUCKLE.
HANGING ON BY A TENDON, NERVES
AND SKIN.
I TOOK HIM TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM.
WE WERE LUCKY THAT A HAND SURGEON
WAS CLOSE BY. HE DRILLED A PIN
STRAIGHT DOWN BART'S FINGER.
I GOT TO WATCH AND THE DOCTOR
EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL
WHILE HE WAS DOING IT.
THEN HE SEWED THE FINGER UP
AND TOLD MR. GENERAL MANAGER TO
GENERAL MANAGE FROM HIS DESK... :)
WE WERE LUCKY, WHEN THEY TOOK THE
BANDAGES OFF, IT WAS STILL PINK.
AND ALTHOUGH HE HAS AN INFECTION IN
HIS BONE AND LOTS OF SWELLING.
IT SEEMS TO BE OKAY.
TODAY THE DOCTOR TOOK THE PIN OUT.
I WANTED TO GO TO WATCH,
BUT WE WERE HAVING ROCK DELIVERED.
THE DOCTOR KNEW THAT MR. GENERAL MANAGER
WAS NOT MANAGING FROM HIS DESK
BY HOW BENT AND TWISTED THE PIN WAS.
HE IS NOW ON HIS 3RD ANTIBIOTIC
AND SHOULD RECOVER WITH HIS FINGER
INTACT.
AND HOPEFULLY HE WON'T FEEL HIS
HEART BEAT IN HIS FINGER MUCH LONGER...:)
