The Wild Wests in Wyoming-part 1
We were blest to be able to go to Wyoming a few weeks ago for a family conference. It was beautiful!
We would like to share some of our adventure with you, so here are some pictures of the trip. Hope y'all enjoy!
The snow capped mountains.
Horses hanging around in the corral.
Getting ready to go get some cows.
Cecilia on Winchester, great horse named for a gun!
If you look closely, you can see the bull whip crackin'
Pickin' up the pace a little.
Ropin' a calf.
Taking a break in the saddle.
These bottle fed calves are so cute!
Beautiful mountain creek.
The little sheep wagon.
The moon rising over the mountains.
We are very grateful to the Moyer family for their western hospitality and friendship!
Baby, it's cold outside
And it sure 'nuff is cold ! The temps here in Tennessee are twelve degrees for the low last night & tonight. BURRRRRR! Hope y'all are staying warm! We fixed up some really good, warm soup today on our wood cookstove. We used potatoes we canned a few months ago . Canned potatoes aren't as good as fresh, but they make for an excellent soup base when a quick wholesome meal is needed.
Well, on cold evenings its kinda nice to read a book out loud to the family, pop some corn, stir up some hot chocolate
and get all comfy. We would like recommend the Little Britches series by Ralph Moody, plumb full of family, farm life, dedication & adventure. Written about the memories from the life of the author, these books will inspire your little men and women and share with you that some of the most important things in life is family and the time spent together.
Just finished reading this excellent book. Thought y'all would love it too!
Full of practical ideas that we've learned from our 'Plain' neighbors & insight into why the Amish/'Plain' folks live the way they do.
