The Great Outdoors

Besides Quilting, one of my other favoritist things to do is be outdoors. For some reason winter hasn't really hit here, yes it is cold in the mornings and evenings. We have ice on the water to prove it, but the days are warming up to between 50 and 70. So we have been taking advantage of this as much as possible.

We hiked into a little stream waaaaay back in the mountains and this is my crew. They caught 8 fish and daddy ( good man that he is!!) came home and fried them up for dinner for them, and (this is the best part) they ALL cleaned the kitchen up while I sewed. See two loves in one day.

Then MY dad got a new dog - so we took him out and tested him in the back pastures. He is a bird dog and he is awesome. It was much colder that day as we started in the morning - so in our pics we are pretty bundled up, but towards the end of the day we had shed our coveralls and ear gear.

We must have walke about 20 miles this day - my legs were so tired when we came back in. We don't live close to a town - so pizza delivery was out. I had some soup - so we had hot soup and salad. A great ending to a gorgeous day.

I know this isn't quilt related - I promise I'll be back with a quilty thing next.... maybe ;-)

Just what kids should be doing instead of playing video games! Hiking, fishing and hunting - perfect.

Now that's a good looking crew! Made me tired just thinking about all that walking.
