Here I am, in New York with Emmy!!!!!!!
It is a pretty foggy and rainy day, but it is still pretty magical!
But first I gotta start with our early morning.....
Mater started barking at about 3 a.m.
We have been tying him up at night because we caught him sneaking over to Vern's during the night because he smelled the dead chickens they were using for bate for the fox that has been getting their chickens.
So Mater has been tied up.
We went out to see what he was barking at, and Brent shined the flashlight right on the fox, who was walking at the top of the coop.
Brent ran and got his 22 and tried to get him.
The shot was too far, and he ran away.
We tried to go back to sleep, but a few minutes later, Mater started barking again.
We went out ready to get him....that is when we noticed that he had already killed a chicken and that he was coming back for it.
Again, it was too far of a shot.
So Brent told me to just go get ready to go to the airport....because we were planning to go there around 4:30... and he was gonna camp out there and watch for the fox.
Well, I got ready, and then we headed to the airport.
This evening he put a cover over the open top on the coop and is going to rig a trap to catch him tonight when he tries to come back and get the chicken.
Fingers crossed it works!
Dang fox has eaten too many chickens around these parts!
So I got on the plane and sat next to a retired firefighter, who was quite a talker :)
Before I knew it, I was in Salt Lake.
I met up with Emmy, and we got some breakfast before heading to our plane.
It was about a 4 hour flight to get to New York.
It was a bit of a bumpy ride, but not too bad.
I think I got a little nap here and there.
Between the pampering you get in first class.....hot towel, snack of your choice, and we also got a meal.
Super spoiled....it was fun :)
When we got here, we took a taxi ride to our hotel, which has a great view of the Empire State Building.
We got our stuff into the room and then we headed out.
We walked around......we went into the lobby of the Empire state building.
We will go up to the top when the weather is better.
Then we walked around, walked to Time Square.
Then we found some New York pizza to eat.
Now we are back at the hotel, getting ready for bed :)
Back at home, Dad taught an extrication class all day.
I am sure he was SO TIRED!
But he said that it went really well, so that is great.
Cassi had her state Rugby game.......and came away with a dislocated shoulder :(
Hopefully now that Rugby is over, her poor body can heal up!
Madi was with Porter and Elsie all day.
They cleaned the house and went outside and played.
I know Port hung out with the boys too.
Right now they are at Elsie's baseball game :)
Dad took them to Panda Express for dinner, which was a big hit, of course!
