Largest Manmade Pit In the World

At the very last minute my Mom decided to join me and my brother and his family to go to the Kennecott Copper Mine. As we drove up to it I was telling the kids a few details about it and Wyatt just kept screaming "WOW" after each detail. I don't think he really knew how big of a "WOW" it was going to be.

The kids loved watching the trucks move around in the pit.

They have quite a large museum about the history and different facts about the rock they pull out of the pit. We got to watch a very informative 15 min. movie which the kids were really good about watching.

The highlight wasn't being at the pit, but leaving the mine. We were held up on the road for some of the trucks to pass us by. You don't get the concept of how large those trucks are until you have one coming at you. It took the entire road for it to move around on. The kids loved it.

Frogs and Dogs

These are our family pets, 2 frogs from our city celebration almost 2 months ago. I didn't want to blog about them until they lived at least one month in our home. Things like fish and frogs sometimes die when you bring them home. Wyatt named them Zooky and Sam. When I change the water the boys love to pick them up and put them in the little cage. I really should videotape Dean doing it, its so funny.
Razor our dog has been in our family for a year now. He really is a great family dog. At first he had some moments where I thought I was going to kill him, but he's a good dog. I think Dean loves him the most, he runs and jumps on him. Dean will call Wazor, Wazor, Wazor and get him to play with him. This dog is so good Grandpa and Grammy said they are going to steal him one night if we aren't nice to him.

Labor Day 2009

Labor Day we went up to the Washington's cabin up at Scofield to fish. As you can see the boys caught a few each. Wyatt was the first to reel in a whopper. We were using worms and colored marshmallows. We only had to cast out 10 feet, anymore they wouldn't bite it. Paul and Brian were working hard and fast getting the worms hooked and the fish off. All Dean talked about before was he wanted a baby fish. Well he got one. This little baby one is a junk fish so Paul threw it into the weeds. Dean was so sad, so his really nice Dad went up in the weeds and found it for him. The fish would jump in front of Dean and he would cry out "the fish just bit me".
The kids at the cabin looking at dinner. Wow I love eating fish, wish Paul did too. Thanks Brian and Lara we had a blast.
