Woodgetting

Had to share some pics of our trip yesterday to gather wood...


We spent all day Sunday woodgetting...

 Craig ran the big chainsaw and I moved as many of the rounds as I could...We had to move many of them together as they were too big and heavy to get into the truck with one person.  I ran the small chainsaw for just a little bit cutting up tootsie rolls - small limbs - but when it cut out for the second time I decided to leave it to the expert! :-)

Lumberjack!  I love this picture!


 My sissy who is a state park ranger and Liam - We got a woodcutting permit for the state park my sissy works at and were able to cut up some trees that had come down in a storm.  Isn't liam cute - he worked soooo hard!
                               Liam making it happen!                                                              
                                                                                                 Eamonn, 3-1/2 yrs old - So cute                                                           



Little worker bees asleep on the ride home from the park :-)

Working together to gather wood for next winter is one of my favorite things to do - We learn so much about each other as a family when we go out each year and team up to provide for our family.  I think there are few things as truly satisfying as working hard and then sitting back and enjoying the fruits of your labor...

We just missed the rain too!  It started back up early last night just after we were finished.

We were all tuckered out by the time it got dark, so we did the only reasonable thing...

Snuggled up next to a cosy fire!

OH MY GOSH! This is such a great adventure! I wish we had a place to get that kind of wood. They sure could use you in that tv show about loggers. I bet your presence will increase the ratings!!! Hope you are well.
