A Day at the Beach


WOW I Never Thought I Would Experience This!....

I never would have thought I would see a chicken be skinned!!! Russell, Jake's cousin wanted me to experience holding the chicken by it's feet (which felt really wierd)! I was supposed to swing it around by its feet to make it dizzy because that's apparently what you do when you get ready to chop its head off! CRAZY I couldn't do that part because I was thinking that I'd probably lose my grip and it would go flying and probably hit a fence or something-get stuck in the fence and then I figured it would be not good to eat anymore?! LOL Russell was really good and didn't make me do anything I didn't want to-and so Jake decided he wanted to chop off its head (no surprise that my husband would want to do that-nothing like being eager to chop off a head (not to be graphic, but you may or may not have seen what I saw that day that will forever change the way I look at packaged meat aka chicken for the rest of my life! I will never forget it...but it did make for a nice crock pot dinner...I just had to look away a couple times when I was cutting the fat off! Anyway, that's about as graphic as I'll get-hopefully it's G rated!

Mother's Day!

On Mother's Day we went into Zions and did a few hikes and enjoyed the cooler weather! We had a picnic at a park in Springdale and Jaxon loved every minute of it! I think he is going to be my little hiking buddy! He loved going to Zions to hike, play in the water and and ride the shuttle!
