Frank Dewey Nelson Reunion

On June 13th, we got to attend the Frank Dewey and Beverly Davis Reunion in Gilbert, Az. It was short and sweet. Grandma Nelson was so happy to have all her posterity in attendance . She was beaming from ear to ear.
Ashlyn and Grandma Nelson. 4th generation gap.
It was also Grandma Nelson's birthday so all the GReat Grandkids made a banner and walked out while singing happy birthday. Grandma LOVED it to say the least.

Chickens and Garden. Jun12, 2009

June was a great month for reaping the rewards of our hardwork. We had 6 chickens laying eggs and had a ball hunting for eggs every morning. We had a chicken that layed HUGE eggs and a chicken that wasn't so fertile. You can see what I mean in the pic below.
Aubrey loved looking for eggs with mom. Here's a dozen we got in 2 days.!
Our Stake Garden just exploded with produce...we had SO much vegetables!! It was a great feeling. If you want to feel successful at a garden, plant tomatoes and zucchini. In the back is green peppers, perfect for hot salsa.....mmmmm
Zucchini was coming out of our ears! We gave all this away at our family reunion later in the month.

Our Hidden Park.....shhhh June 10th, 09

Oh June 10th, 2009 we found a hidden treasure in Maricopa. Maricopaites, if you want in on the secret, talk to me. I won't reveal the secret on the internet.:) This hidden secret is the coolest, biggest, awesomest park in MAricopa. And it sits in the back of an unfinished subdivision in Maricopa. Imagine that, and unfinished subdivision in Maricopa. But this park is HUGE. and it has more swings that Pacana Park. And it's covered! We found it on the 9th, and the 10th we packed a lunch and came back to play!! The girls went all out and brought their cinderella tea set to use for utensils and plates. And even shared their things with Malin. We used only what we had in our kitchen at the time, beans, sandwiches, grapes, chips and water. :) It was so fun!!
