Deer Hunting

weekends with Daniel and Janel

Sausage Making.....

Fall walks with friends before the snow came.

A couple months ago on the way home from a friends wedding in Vermont Daniel, Janel, Seth and I stopped at Niagara Falls for the day. We went to the bottom of the falls on the boat and got rather wet.

The falls are beautiful!
