Beautiful Sunflowers

"They are just over this hill." My mom anoused as we rounded a curve in the dirt road. I stretched my neck trying to be the first person to exclame in excitement how beautiful they were. "There they are!" Mom exclaimed pulling into a driveway and turning off the truck. Grabbing my phone I jumped out of the truck and headed for the field full of sunflowers. This year the farmer had planted sunflowers, to my mom's delight. After snapping a few pictures I stepped back and exsamined the beauty. "Sunflowers are so cool. It's like they are all watching us." A whole field full of sunflowers, all looking the same diection and all so beautiful!




Isn't it just so amazing?! The photes don't give it justice.

The Best Time of the Year!

Summer is great, right!? I just got back from teen camp and am getting all ready for the county fair! The best time of the year is here!



This my pig and me! 

So far I'm happy with doing a market pig this year. Every day I give her grain, water, clean out her pen, walk her, and wash her. It's hard work but worth it. 


Don't you love these shirts??!! A lady I know made them for me. I can't wait to wear them at the Fair. 


Just the other day we went to the fair grounds and cleaned out the pig pens. I'm so excited!


Getting the food ready for the Fair is a big thing to do too! My mom normally does that and let me just say she does a great job at it!


So as you can see, I'm very excited for the county Fair! More posts coming. 😁

4-wheeling on Summer Days

Lately my brother and I been going on 4-wheeler rides ether at nights or during the day.  Just the other day we got to go see a lot of fog at night.  It was cool because we drove right through it.  πŸ˜ƒ  Once we went before it was dark out and spotted deer.  I got a few pictures so I thought you all would probably like to see them.


This is me on the 4-wheeler driving in our neighbor's feild.


Isn't this a beautiful view?! While we went on one of our 4-wheeler rides we stopped and took a walk across a beaver dam.  I got a few pictures and I think they turned out very nicely.  




A quick selfie Lol


So I've been learning to drive the 4-wheeler even better and having a fun time with my brother.  

~ Do you have a 4-wheeler?  Do you ever drive it?  Are the pictures nice? ~

Busy, Busy Summer!

Hi everyone! How has your summer been? I've been busy, busy but having a lot of fun! Since I haven't done a blog post in such a long time I thought you all would probably like it if I do a post about what I've been doing so far this summer.

Friends
In the beginning of June my mom, grandma, and I went to a home school book sale. I got tons of books that I'm really excited to read.
One of my dear friend's mom was there. So after the book sale I got to go home with her and spend an awesome time with her daughter and her. We went shopping, ate pizza, had a photo shoot, watched the sunset at a lake, and ate banana splits. It was a sweet time of fellowship. πŸ’œ She'll be going to college in August so I wanted to spend some time with her before that.
Here's my favorite picture from the phote shoot!


Didn't she do a great job at taking it?!

Cousins
I had an awesome sleepover with three of my cousins and two little girls. I wanted it to be something that they would member from years to come.



Jr. Camp
I was a counselor at Jr. Camp this year! I was one last year too and again I had a blast!



~How has your summer been? What have you been doing? Do you like blogging in the summer? I do I just have a hard time getting the post write then posted. Lol Csnt wait to hear from every one!~

Ducklings!

So the other day I was doing chores when I heard little peeping.  I looked over and there were ducklings!  Our duck had hatched ducklings!


She had 7 of them...  They are the cutest things in the world!

The cool thing was we didn't even know she was laying on eggs!  So it was a complete surprise!

You should see them walk around with their mother.  In the morning when I come out for chores she already has them out walking around.  We've even seen her dig a small whole for her babies to try to find worms.  She is such a devoted mother.  She finds food for them, watches them, protects them, and keeps them warm.  Every night they sleep underneath her.  

Let's Talk
~ Have you ever had ducklings?  Aren't they the cutest thing? ~

Healthy Snacks


Do you ever want a healthy snack but you don't know what?  That has happened to me before and if I don't find something healthy I sometimes end up eating something bad (floury, sugary, or anything unhealthy).  I don't want you to end up eating something unhealthy so today I will tell you some healthy snacks that are my recipes!

Peanut Butter Balls
My family loves peanut butter balls!  Normally my mom makes a big batch but lately I've been making a small batch for just myself.  They are filling and yummy.  
Recipe (the big batch):
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup powder milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • optional; chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seed, coconut shreds 
(feel free to print this out for yourself)


Trail Mix
I don't normally buy trail mix, I make it myself.  It's simple and easy to make.  
Recipe:
  • almonds
  • peanuts
  • chocolate chips
  • dried cranberries (or dried mix berries) 
  • sunflower seeds 
You can use any kind of nuts but these are the ones I normally use.  

Cream Cheese, Salsa, and Chips
This is a super easy but really delicious dip.  I like to make this for myself sometimes whenever I want a snack.  
Recipe: (I layer it)
  • cream cheese (bottom)
  • salsa (top)
  • optional; shredded cheese
  • chips (tortilla chips, blue chips or whatever you want)


Fruit
Sometimes I'll cut up an apple and dip it in peanut butter.  Grapefruit, oranges, or grapes are good too!  Also you could have peanut butter and banana.  I don't like banana alone so I always add peanut butter with it.  My one brother likes to snack on frozen blueberries.  :)


Apples and Cheddar Cheese 
Apple and cheddar cheese is SO good together!!  You have to try it! 

Now instead of grabbing a cookie, candy, or something unhealthy for a snack try one of my recipes!

Let's TalkπŸŽπŸ§€
~ Do you ever eat any of these?  Are you going to try any of these?  If so, which one? ~


BTW!!!  All pictures that have my link on it was taken by me.  But if it doesn't have a link I either got it from pixabay or from a friend.
