It was the perfect day to fly a kite. I snagged a dragon one from good old Walmart on the way home from work because it was so windy.....almost to windy, but the kids had fun. It's not every day you can walk out your front door and fly a kite without it getting caught in a tree or on the neighbors yard. They have started two more houses, one on the street below us and one just north of us, but across the street. We are dreading the day someone builds behind us or on the side of us. We have such a beautiful view of the valley, and having no one right next to us has been nice. It's so nice to walk out the front door and see the mountains and smell the fresh air. The other day we had the cutest little fox running up the mountain. I had never seen one so we sat and watched it till we could see it no more. Justin found a huge paw print in our yard that really concerned him. It was huge....his brothers say it is a dog, but I am nervous about a mountain lion, they have come down this far before. A lady in our ward had a Bobcat in her window sill last fall so I am always on the lookout for anything...paranoid for sure. The other day it rained and rained and when the sun finally came out we went out our front door and this is what we saw....beautiful....I swear we could have walked right over to it.
Dad was working hard to level out the yard in Grandpa Rolly's tractor. He would never admit it but I think he was having a blast driving it all around the yard.
