Fishing with Grandma and Pappa Ovard

Fishing on Strawberry was a lot of fun, we all enjoyed spending time with my parents, it was a beautiful day even when the clouds were in the process of banging together to get a storm a brewing, it was fun to listen to the kids on what images they could find in the clouds. Fishing was kind of slow, most of the day but of coarse I was the first one to be able to catch the first fish and get it to the boat. While I was bringing it in there happened to be another fish following my little fish, ( he wasn't to little, he was big enough to keep) I guess the big fish wanted to eat my fish. Next thing we know Kameron has a fish and when he got it to the boat it sure did look a lot like the fish who had been chasing mine. He gave Kameron quite the fight and just as they were trying to get it with the net he got off the hook. Kameron was kind of disappointed, but at least he could say he had a big one that got away. Even though we didn't catch a lot of fish the we all had a great time. I was able to teach all 3 of the kids how to cast a fishing pole, and they all did great. We got a little sun, but just enough to give us that sun kissed glow.

After we fished most of the day we went to Heber ti the Train Station ( Dairy Keen) to get something to eat. The kids liked watching the trains go round and round. Then Clint and I were able to tell the kids good bye, since they were headed up to grandma and papa's house for a couple of days, before the summer was over. So we left the kids and secretly headed to Granny's to get a mini shake for the way home, boy was it good. If you have never been to Granny's you are missing out!

Clint and I were able to have the weekend to with out the kids which is rare to come by, we were able to get some stuff around the house done, and a few new projects started. We are getting ready to put the house up for sale, so we are just doing a couple of up grades to help it look a bit nicer. We have a long list of things to do, but if it was only Clint's choice he would of had the house listed 3 weeks ago. I am waiting for the kids to be in school so I can get everything picked up to my liking, and get the carpets cleaned before I want to get it listed, so hopefully within the next week or so we will have her up for sale. I will take some pictures of the Tile that we ( Clint ) is putting down in the entry way and in the Master bath soon and let you all know what is going on with the Christofferson Clan in the next few weeks:)
