Memorial Day Weekend/Monday

We had a fun time on Monday out on the farm with the Sharp family in Idaho. The weather was beautiful, we played and got a lot of farm work done - warning some pictures may be disturbing.

Matt, Aimee, me and Jeff

We started with enjoying the Sharps latest kill. They grilled up a bunch of spare ribs from their biggest pig.
Jillian, Emma and Ella
Eliza and Olivia
Madi, Mikayla and Taylor with Jillian
Jeff getting the ice cream going! Yum!
Olivia and Eliza were playing dress up.
Cute picture of Emma and Ella.
The girls inside playing games while Jeff and Matt add on to the chicken coop.

Emma and Ella pulling the dog around in the wagon.
They all loved riding the quad.

Love this picture.
My girls were playing with the camera.
Jeffrey and Mikayla trying to talk Madi into getting on with Mikayla. It didn't work.

This is our pig as soon as it is big enough eat.
Roosters are beautiful. I just wish they weren't mean and loud.
Girls playing with camera again. Jolly Rancher ice cream syrup?
Cute shot of Jillian and her dog.
Ice cream time!
Little girls being silly.
Jeff and Matt put this door thingy that Jeff is holding up on the coop.

Dad, look away now. These pictures are not pretty!
So I'm talking to Aimee on the phone Sunday night about food plans when she says, "hold on a minute Carolyn... What matt? Can't you castrate after? Oh you want to cook the balls?" I guess on the farm this is not unusual conversation but for the rest of us city folk....!?! What are we having for dinner? Well, luckily we didn't eat any Fear Factor type food but I did get some good pictures of the castration. Continue on if you enjoy sick pictures like these.

with Jeff and Matt
They've got the clothes on, the razor and disinfectant -they're ready to go.
One more cut.

There it is. You can imagine the noises this pig was making.
I will leave this blog on a better note - A cute picture of Madi with Jillian.

Thanks for coming out, we had so much fun! That is a fun post, I love the picture with Madi on the tires in sepia tone, print that one! No one reading this blog will ever want to come visit the Sharp's in Idaho for fear of what is for dinner! See you soon! Maybe another BBQ, we'll bring the delicatesse.... I am sure I just spelled that wrong!
