A Great Weekend!

Corn Shucking Party!
My cousin Rich and my Aunt Carol came up for the weekend. 
It was great being surrounded by so much family.
It was time for the corn to be harvested.  So we set up an assembly line. 
We all had our jobs.
Some shucked the corn, Rich cut it off the cob with a knife.
Then we had to blanche it, bag it and freeze it.
It was fun.

The same weekend we watched a lawn mower race at the Scarecrow Festival at Malad Fairgrounds.
It was hysterical.  Some of these guys really got into souping up their ride on lawnmower and rode it like a dirt bike.
Everyday, Victoria watches to see how Kathy wears her beautiful long hair
so she can wear hers the same way.
It is really cute.
Kathy braided Victoria's hair in a rope braid the other day so that is her latest desire of the day.

While at the fair grounds, Rich and Kathy went for a helicopter ride. 
Rich is just short a few hours to having his helicopter pilot license. 
It was so nice to see brother and sister do something together. 
They flew over Kathy's house.  You can see the garden and our van.  It isn't just anybody who has an aerial view of their home.
It has been fun spending time with my cousins. 
I love them. They are a lot of fun.
