Lehi Days Rodeo

The beginning of March we went to the Lehi Day's Rodeo.  Some of my brothers and sisters went along with their kids.  So we did an impromptu shot of the cousins.  We are missing a few of them, but it was fun.  The kids did the greased pig race and chicken catch.  And Colton actually caught a little chick!  My brothers, James and Jared did the grocery race and that was fun to watch!  We were definitely exhausted by the end of the day!

Hiking at Pickett Post

Back in February we took a day trip to a few places.  The first place we went to I didn't get any pictures of, but it is an amazing cemetery near Florence.  There is a little ghost town named Adamsville.  The cemetry there is so old!  The gravestones date back to the Civil War era.  We may be a weird family, but we love walking around cemeteries.  There are so many untold stories that it fasinates us.  And there is always such a peaceful feeling there.  Anyway, this cemetry is not maintained by anyone, with one exception.  There was a lady there that comes down and works for 4 to 6 hours a day cleaning and trimming trees and putting flowers on the gravestones.  We were able to talk with her and she said she has been doing this for about a year!  What a sweet, giving lady! 

After the Adamsville cemetry, we drove to Pickett Post, just outside of Superior and went on a hike and had a campfire.  We had such a fun day, and just about wore ourselves out!  Here are a few pictures of the hike...
