Gone Fishing...

Dennis and I finally took a full day off from working on the house when we were invited to spend the day fishing up at Strawberry Reservoir .
One of the neatest places to pass through  is a place called Heber City
 it is full of beautiful old buildings.
  This one pictured below is the old city building.
 It had a few visitors there that morning as we passed through.
The turkey buzzards had found the perfect spot to warm up their bodies.
 I really had to chuckle once I could see what was under the one vulture with his wings spread out.
 It was one of those plastic owls that people put up to ward them off it works well.
Hadley was full of excitement to begin her day of fishing.
Brent and Kacy trying to find the perfect spot for the best fish.
Out of the six people fishing that day only Cheryl,  Brent's mom caught two fish
 and one of those had to be let go.
Wesley also was excited to fish but her excitement started at 4:00 in the morning with the constant hum of  chatter that continued through out the drive there, unloading , getting out on the water and then  her enthusiasm decided to take a  long nap.

As soon as their feet hit the ground you could see
 it in their eyes
 with  the  mud oozing up between their toes
 there was only one thing to do.

Wesley trying to figure out how to get the caked on mud off her little body.

It was a great day for both sets of grandparents to enjoy the day watching the girls.

Mornings on Angel Street

Nothing is better than mornings here on Angel Street.
Here we have the *All You Can Eat Breakfast Bar*
As you can see it  is a popular place.
My favorite flower that adds a touch of sunshine.
 Love the little specks of yellow in the center of this flower
 The inside of the coop has had its own transformation
we have enclosed a barn stall with chicken wire
hopefully to  keep them safe and raccoons out.
 On the outside I did a little decorating also with  The *Coop* sign made out of twigs.
The pictures below are the after picture.
 Sod has been laid and it  has opened up the lawn 
the before

I took all the branches from the curly willow tree that
was trimmed off and  arranged them above front door and  decorated it with  things of summer.
The next  two pictures of the garden on the south of the house.
 We just need to get some of the over growth managed.

You can not help but notice the big gap of trees out front we had to have
  three of them removed. I t feels a little bare now.

My grandson Connor has been helping us with many different things around the house. 
 He removed the old deck an got to spend one stinky day draining and cleaning the pond.
