Duthoven cooking

I bought Fred a dutchoven for Christmas, not realizing how good the food was going to be. He has made a couple of chicken dinners and a couple of upsidedown pineapple cakes in this and they were pretty good. I like it went we camp as you can see I don't have to cook, Fred has all the gadgets to cook outside and of course I let him at it and he is a pretty good cook. Eric and him went turkey hunting for the first time this year and both of them had gotten turkeys, Fred cooked up a turkey dinner over Memorial weekend and it was really good.

Spring Break 2010

We traveled to Florida this year for a vacation. The first day was so long 20 hours in the van. But it was worth it, the weather was awesome, sunny and 80-85 all week not a cloud in the sky. We stayed in a vacation home with Matt & Michelle, Dan & Andrea & Mom Fonda for the week, it was a huge house, with a pool and a game room for the kids. Plus it had a community pool, playground, volleyball & tennis court. I would have to say I would definitely recommend this place.I first day in Florida we went orange picking and saw our first alligator. Personally I think Collin who took this photo was to close.

This is the game room were the kids hung out

We went to the beach a couple of days, the boys, tried snorkeling, but the water was way to rough. But I have to say we found out were sponge bob lives the boys found him on the shore sunbathing

We had to visit the biggest and most unique McDonald's of course, they offered more than just cheeseburgers, there I was quite impressed with the menu.

Emily even got serenaded by the moon :)

It's been quite some time since I have been on this blog, alot has been happening though, we are adjusting to homeschooling this year, and so far it is going good except for what I am completely inadequate to teach Emily (math)help anyone. Both Collin & Jesse are doing pretty good doing their work on their own, in the beginning I have to admit I was going out of my mind with back & forth between them. I think they finally realized that I'm not going to do the work for them. We had a busy Christmas break with family get togethers, 3dyc and just hanging out. This was my first year to go to 3dyc, a district youth conference with Emily this year, I have to admit it can be fun hanging out with a bunch of teenagers, except for the fact that they don't let you sleep much. Fred got either 4 or 5 deer this I lost count, what a blessing to fill up our freezer, and make sausage sticks out of one, he has went on a hog hunt also, so we have lots of sausage.

This is the group that went to 3dyc

This is Emily, Collin & Jesse tearing up the yard
they were out there a total of 4 hours today, they had alot of fun.
