Light and Dark Contrast

Stormy day showing light and dark contrast. It is so cloudy that you cannot even see the mountains.

Took a picture of the backside of a waterfall from within a rock wall that had a peeky hole.

Beautiful Agate and Pale Blue Bracelet

Perhaps, I can get back to my little jewelry business now that my daughter and family are moving this weekend.  Time to celebrate. I will be adding more agate and jade creations to my Etsy shop in the next week or so.  Take a peek. It costs nothing to look.

Henry whose nickname was Harry was raised in
Plain City, Utah but his father, Henry Sr.

His father stayed in St. Louis, Missouri for two years
while earning enough money to cross the plains.
He finally made it to Utah in 1852. Harry Jr.
name his first son Henry and he was called

So we have Harry 1, Harry 2 and Harry the third. A generation was skipped and my uncle was named Henry and went by Harry.

Best Birthday Ever

Thanksgiving Point has a small farm that is almost like a petting zoo. They have horses, cows, alpacas, goats, geese, chickens, rabbits, sheep, long horn sheep and so many fun animals to see and feed. 

Fifteen years ago when they first opened, they had a rabbit hutch but the rabbits kept digging too many holes and were escaping daily so now they keep them in separate cages because they seem to multiply.
Can't see you, I need a trim.

My granddaughter had her birthday party there where she chose to have a horse painted on her face.  All her friends had their sweet little cherubic faces painted, ate pizza, played games and then each child was given a little plastic sack full of food so that they could feed the animals. Next, they brought a horse in the party room for all the children to pet. 

Then they rode horses.
