We spent all of last week working hard on the road. Our ward had a priesthood camp out at the property this past weekend and we needed to get the road in for them to access the camping area. We also spent time knocking down what I refer to as "devil trees." Actually, I think they are hawthorns, but they are horribly thorny and everywhere! I knock them down with the tractor and haul them to a burn pile. Long, hard days! Sometimes we ask ourselves, "What we're we thinking?!!" I'm sure one day we will look back on all of this and be grateful for the property, but WOW it's a lot of work. I don't know how the pioneers did it without the big heavy equipment that we get to use.
WOW! No driver's permit, but boy can he drive a steam roller!
Dad had fun on it also!
Too much sun so Dad decided to wear a straw hat.
McKay thinks he looks like Twinkie the Kid.
What do you think?
Knocking down trees...
...scooping them up...
...and dumping them in the burn pile! Gotta love the tractor!
