Well, it's almost June 1st

And I thought it was a good time to update my blog!! Anyway, things have been busy, fun, exciting, sad, hopeful, just all kinds of emotions lately. So...I will take you on a walk through our calendar for May.

Here is a shot of us at Pioneer Farms this was a great family day and outing!

Here are the kids and us enjoying different events while on our tour:
Here they are learning how to make their own candles!
Then they had the opportunity to ride a horse drawn carriage.

Here Atira is working with Mrs. Short on her candle dipping.
Jordan and Atira are in an original cabin from Pioneer days that has furnishings that were from the same cabin! It was really amazing to see such history.

Atira and Teigan are dressed up here like Pioneer girls.

Jordan is hard at work learning to saw the way a pioneer would have done it.

This was incredible! Jordan was able to bring up the fire on the coals, all the while he had a horseshoe in the blaze, when it was glowing he took it out and hammered it on the anvil. So cool!
The kids really enjoyed the barn and animals.

This was a wonderful day....lots of memories and a really good time. I will save this for now and start a new blog for the next event.

We love and miss all our family! Enjoy the pictures.
