Well we have moved back to our home of 13 years after a 6 month break. It went smoothly and my DH can be quoted as saying its great to move back into somewhere you've already been then you know where it all goes. I will still be blogging and we will still have fun! Make sure you keep up to date!

My winter squash included;
Australian Butter Squash
Pennsylvania Dutch Crookneck, mine never seem to crook though
and Pumpkins, Connecticut and white
And other things in my garden;
Corn,(deer and grasshoppers got it)
sunburst patty pan
yellow straight neck
carrots, red, orange, yellow and white
Onions, red and yellow
green beans (deer got them)
peppers, bell, banana and Anaheim
I was so glad to figure out that we pulled more than a thousand pounds of veg from the garden, a lot more than I was expecting-but then again you never know what you are going to get!

On Saturday we went to the Gorge and did the Dam tour, and ate our packed lunch. Then we went to a beach and fished and went swimming. With the kids all worn out we had them fed and in bed by 8:30 when the sun went down.
On Sunday everyone helped out and cleanup went fast. This was our last great thing we will be doing before leaving the basin and it was great fun.

We had a great time at our the family reunion, but sad to see that there were not a lot of family there this year, either they left early or didn't make it. I think it was mostly just bad timing or something. We hope to see more next year but had a blast anyway.

It was a lot of fun we had a picnic, and M and her family joined us. The boys decorated a 2 liter bottle for the little ladybug and her birthday, they were cute about it when we went to get the decorating stuff for it they had to get the beautiful stuff because she is a girl. So it was all pink and soft and had some faux jewels on it too.
PT's Rocket had a funnel on the end of it so it looked more like a rocket to him and it had some playdough in the end. When that rocket flew it did a great job at going straight up then when it came down the funnel stuck in the ground at a slant, it looked neat.

At the hatchery they were just jumping all over the place. So if you have a chance and are up by Strawberry Reservoir between August and October you should check them out.
Yeah my DH did it most all of the pics where recovered!

The next Saturday we went fishing all day. First we went to Cottonwood and then we went to Flaming Gorge. I have to tell you that the drive is just beautiful. We even saw a ram crossing the road. And I guess right now they are having open grazing up there which wasn't so bad going up but coming home in the dark we had to be careful not to hit any steer because they were black and hard to see. There was a bit of rain so after that cleared we were in a great spot to see the rainbow over the Gorge, it was beautiful.
We went to the Sheep Creek Canyon area. And are going to go back because the area we went to is a sockeye salmon spawning area and is now closed to fishing because of that. It should be great to see all the red in the water with the fall changing foliage.
We did catch some trout both O and PT did. And it was funny because they like the worms but only with the trout gravy on them.
The day was great and beautiful. I love spending time with my guys.

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.
The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
