Sunflowers & Subs

Today is Pioneer Day and last week the youth went on TREK and since I work with the youth we went to the "Welcome to the Valley" activity on Saturday.  (Pioneer Day is a day we Mormon's celebrate the trek our pioneers made to the West in the 1800's and settled Utah).

Afterwards we went to a Naval Museum where you can tour a submarine. All for free. It was a neat experience to get a small glimpse of how Cony lived for almost 4 years. I have no clue how he did what he did in a sub UNDER water. I think I would be happier sleeping in an igloo with no blankets... and I hate the cold.

Monday evening we went to a sunflower farm with our Rose's and Seal's which has become my favorite thing to do each summer. I have decided that when we retire I really want to have a Sunflower /Christmas tree farm with a B&B on the property for Afton to manage! I told Cony my plan and he thankfully agreed. It feels so good to have a (set) plan for our future. Oh, and I can't forget the honeybee's on the farm too. I really am being serious.
