Today were invited to join some friends out at the lake. 
We rode on their boat.
Here is my dear friend Kim Nelson. 
Lucas was watching for the fish as th e other boys were dishing as we slowly moved aling the lake. 
Lucas even got to drive.
On your marks,

JUMP! Dezzi enjoyed swimming I. The deep water.
Lucas wasn't quite so sure.
But in the end he got in also.
but not for to long. 
Overall a great day at the lake.

Fort Union Rendezvous

We took a walk back in time when we went to kids day at the rendezvous.
we watched a black smith work his magic with a hammer and the hot iron rod.
He was making a hook nail.
Our good friend Elizabeth joined us for this fun adventure.
This nice lady was talking about what kind of toys native kids would have played with.
Lucas loved the tipi.
There was a camp fire that kept us warm on this chilly day as we listened to a man tell us about food.
Dezzi asked him why there was grass on the roof of the building and he said to keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer.
he showed us these bowls filled with peas, roasted corn, and bacon.

They could choose a craft of coloring or making a bead necklace 
This gentleman shot this black powder gun for the kids and told them all about it 

They also got to make corn husk dolls. All in all a great day.

Flower Dissection

Today we took a close look at flowers.
A very close look. 
We took the flower apart and glued it on a piece of paper.
We labeled all the parts and discussed their purpose.
Dezzi labeled all of hers all by here self.

Strawberry Icecream


Today Dezzi carefully cut up a bunch of strawberries. 
Then she boiled them with some salt, water and Vanilla.
Next we gathered the ingredients  for our icecream base.
She watched over it to make sure it didn't boil over. 
After supper we each took turns turning the crank. Lucas was slow and steady.
Dezzi was a little quicker.
Daddy was the best with his steady even motion.
Mommy Got Off easy. It was getting close to done so....

Daddy hooked up the power to get it done.
That was hard work.
Time for a quick taste.
It was so thick and creamy. It filled our 6 quart canister. 
Dezzi thought it was delictable.
and Lucas's smile.says it all.
