This past weekend was finally a warm one. With less than a week before Shane & I leave for sunny Vegas this silly country decides to warm up! Well, we will take the warm weather whenever it comes! Like any true Canadian when the weather turns warm we bundled up and headed outdoors. One of the hobbies of my family is to collect sheds, not a wooden structure that you put your garden tools in but the pointy hard cartlidge headgear that fall off male deer. If your reading this and your not from the prairies you are probably thinking how silly this may seem, but to us out here it's a great past time that provides family bonding and great exercise.

So, off the 3 of us went with the dogs "up north" to put some grain out for the deer and look for sheds. Deer sheds aren't normally dropped this early but once in a while you can find 1 or 2. There is something so special about being in the wilderness with hardly a noise, just your thoughts and the occasional bird chirping.......that is until you have 3 aussie's blow past you!! The dogs had a great time running in the bush. So many new sights & smells. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures........

I am looking forward to Vegas next week and can't believe my Mom agreed to take care of the place here! She is the best mom ever!!! and she has no idea what she's in for........:)
I will write after I get back with pics from VEGAS!!!
