EGGS!!! & Bites

Most of my Carson came home from Redfish Lake, part of him is still in many mosquitos somewhere. He came home with 88 mosquito bites so who knows how many he got the entire month he was there. They didn't bother him though, he could have cared less. Hopefully he doesn't get west nile:/LOOK what I found in the coop today. EGGS! It was so unexpected we were just going to see if they were all in the coop to shut them in for the night and Austin opened the door and I saw the two bottom eggs sitting in the nest. There so tiny the top one is store bought. The day before Trace had let the chickens out and to get them all back in you just have to wait til night and they all come in to roost, well we forgot and the next morning Austin heard one squock so he went to the bedroom window to find a fox trying to catch him some breakfast. He ran outside (wearing nothing) and the fox dropped the chicken and ran away. HaHAHA now I call him the chicken whisperer :)

The Trek was something that I'm Glad I did,but I don't want to do it again any time soon. Kinda the same as right after you have a baby ha ha :) It was a great experience and I am so humbled to have ancestors that went through way worse conditions that what I just did for the whole purpose of coming to Zion so there posterity could grow up an live here. Here is Ma and Pa Brackin. It was cool while on the trek we stopped for a potty break and one of the missionaries told the story of MY Ancestor who saved the company she was in by bringing dried meat that she had gotten from a angel of the lord. It was cool felt a real connection!!
We were very tired so it was very easy to be silly.
This is the worst injury our trek family had. BLISTERS
The last day trekking the last couple miles.
These were our kidsBack row left to right Nick, Johnny, Ammon, front girls left to right Kenzie, Skylee, and Kelsey. They were great kids. Never complained got along very well and worked very hard!

FAT, SIck, and nearly Dead

That Darn Netflicks has some eye opening documentaries on it. Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead is the most recent one that I watched and I was expecting it to be about fat people, but it wasn't. I think I was frustrated about my non existent weight loss so I wanted to make myself feel better by watching people heavier than me in this move :P It wasn't that, it was about how unhealthy America Eats! I've always thought that I ate ok, but now I know that I eat horrible and thats the reason I am having a difficult time losing. I will try to post the trailer. To make it short this guy Drank only fruit and vegetable juice made with a juicer for 60 days. I would like to try this not for 60 days that is nuts, but I could try ten and see what happens?? I can't figure out how to put the video trailer on here but here is a link to the utube trailer

The Juicer in the movie is $150.00, but they sale juicers at wal-mart anywhere from 40- 100 bucks. I'm going to try it if anyone would like to join me it would be great moral support. i'm shooting for the week of the 25th, Not next week the next:) so go get you a juicer:) HAHA

Austin made a great point to me over our Independence holiday. Why do people say happy fourth of July?? We don't say happy 31st of October? We say Happy Halloween. Do people really know why we celebrate the "fourth of July" or do kids just think it's a time we watch fireworks. It's the most important day in every Americans life. The day america denounced itself from the crown and became a free nation. I think many americans take that for granted cause they have never lived under a king. The day the Declaration of Independence was signed. I am proud to be an American and am so grateful for those who risk there lives to keep our nation FREE!

We went on a ride when we got to the top we were surrounded by these wild sunflowers, they were beautiful!!
We also lost Traces' favorite chicken little blacky. Kalie's dog Jaxon is a bird dog and he was in doggie heaven :( Now little Blacky is in chicken Heaven literally.
This was our picnic on top of the mountain. Look there I am with my mouth full :D
And there I am again family shot without Carson, cause he is having a blast up at redfish lake with my mom and dad. We had a fantastic weekend finishing up at bear lake on Monday but you will have to look at those pics on facebook I forgot to take pictures there. Thanks to our friends and fam for hanging with us.

Pictures of Me

Ha you thought there would be pictures of me on this post right. Well thats just it trying to find a picture of me is scarce. So I am taking a vow today that in all our weekend fun I will get some pictures with me in them. I think the reason is I never like how I look in pictures, but I don't care anymore. It freezes a memory in time and helps me to remember all the good, bad, and ugly times i've had. Sometime I would like to do stuff with other friends and family besides Austin's family. It seems they are the only ones that ever want us around. Don't get me wrong I love them and all but new is always good :) Have a nice and safe fourth of July weekend!!
