2013 Recap

December 2013

October 2013

We worked at clearing the west side of the creek bank, so that a new fence could be built. 

New platform for the new zip line

It was a long stretch that needed to be cleared.

Alot of deadfall 

evening out the bank

removing the old fence

Sure looks nice and clean

We had a major burn - 20+ piles

The creek was really low when the Welch Ditch Dam was removed.

Fun Fall time

Installing the new zip line

Another Season Gone - Another Burn

Put to bed for the winter

Probably one of the biggest burn piles we have ever had, with Zac's roof, and our milkhouse on the pile.  Also one of the BEST days for burning, not too cold, sunshine, and good packing snow for snowball fights :)

There she goes !!!

Wow - where did the Summer go?

We'll be having a year end get-together at the property this Saturday at 1pm.  Peru Missionaries, families, etc.  We are looking forward to it.  Bring meat to cook on the grill or fire, and a potluck to share with all.  We'll provide drinks, utensils, etc.   Hope to see you there !

Here are some fun pics from this past Summer:

Spring at the Property - 2011

I'm lazy - so I'll refer you to a post made on my main blog.
Suffice to say, WE ARE BACK !
We love "The Property" - it's great to be there and to work there as a family.
We had our first major clean-up of the year on Saturday the 16th of May (cleaned the big limbs) and then again on Saturday the 23rd of May.

Put to bed for Winter

Our annual Thanksgiving Burn was a success, despite the FOOT of snow that came down the Sunday before.  Said snow sure did a number on the trees at the property.  We will have a BIG JOB next Spring, that's for sure.

One of the BEST ideas we had was to enlarge the sandpile. The little ones LOVE it, especially when they discovered that the creek water makes it even MORE fun !

We have done alot of tubing on the creek this year. We load up the truck, and drive up to the Richville Lane bridge. We unload on the South side of the bridge, and the tubes go under the road/bridge and on down to the property. It's not very far, probably not even a 1/2 a mile. It's about a 10 minute float - wish it was a little longer, but oh well :) It's quite an adventure for the little ones, and a relaxing way to cool off for the oldies.
