Our backwards ways...

It's hunting season, which means we don't get to go to our other house on weekends because daddy is at the hunting camp.  So sometimes we do things backwards, we spend the week at the river and come back to this house on the weekend!  This was one of those weeks.  It's so amazingly quiet and peaceful out there.  We hang out inside, make a fire in the fireplace, read, play games, take nature walks, and the boys ride their four wheeler.  We also had the special treat of celebrating daddy's birthday out there this trip.  I cooked a great shrimp fried rice and dessert was this simple but amazing recipe for chocolate wontons!  A nugget of chocolate folded in a wonton wrapper and sealed, fried, and sprinkled with powdered sugar...yummy!  As you can see, Grace LOVED it!  (BTW, the shrimp fried rice and the dessert came from this book The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook: 101 Asian Recipes Simple Enough for Tonight's Dinner which I have loved--great and simple chinese recipes!)

Going there tends to wear us out!

I found out that Grace can climb trees...She'd get a ways up and then cry out for help.  Didn't stop her--she go right back and do it again!  She keeps me on my toes....

Life can be rough for poor Gracie...we don't even know what triggered this one!  LOL

Or this one...

While the girls were climbing trees, the boys found a chicken (not ours) loose in our yard.  They spent about 20 minutes trying to catch it!  Gotta give it to them, their persistence paid off.  The held it for a while and then we released it.

The moon looked very interesting.  This was taken at about 5:30 yesterday afternoon.   Really neat!

Same moon (LOL),  different view.
