Burn Baby Burn and Ride Baby Ride

I grew up in southeast Idaho, and burning stubble fields and ditches is not a new thing for me.  However, doing so with the right equipment is.  Our neighbors (the one's with horses) are going to put some cattle behind our house, so was burning the ditch bank and clearing brush so a fence could be put up.  Jeff went out to help, and was excited to learn a gigantic flame thrower/propane tank would be used.  To say he had fun is an understatement.  I just kept wishing that my dad lived closer, because he would have loved it.  

As a side note, as I left the men to their work and walked back into the house, Hadyn was standing at the back window with tears rolling down her cheeks.  All she could see was Jeff standing in the fire.  So sweet.  I wonder what she thinks of me, since I just walked away leaving him to the flames...actually, I don't want to know...




Also this week, we had something very exciting happen...

Cool weed burner, Jeff. I like the weed burner that I use but that makes mine look out of date. Looks like you had fun. Hyrum

The smell of burning ditches is heaven to me! Each time I smell it I can't help but to remember each Spring or Fall when my dad would burn ours!

Way to go, Haydn! And I'm glad Jeff gets to play with fun toys. Nothing like a flamethrower to make the weekend better. :)
