Sorry this picture is so grainy... cell phone.  After getting back from Hawaii a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to grow a pineapple.  So, after eating the delicious fruit from the grocery store, I saved the top and got it to grow.  It turned into a monster plant that pokes your eyes and grabs your arms as you walk by.  I was just trying to decide whether or not to keep it, when yesterday I saw this little gem poking out of the plants crown!!!! I am so excited that it is finally making fruit!  I will keep you posted on the progress of my new little darling.

Lunch break

I am spending many hours working at the bookstore.  Jacob will start classes again tomorrow. I'm tired of picking vegetables and finding homes for all of them so it is good to feel fall in the air!

Yellowstone holiday

Today was probably our last Yellowstone trip for this year.  It was a rather soggy day in the park, but at least it wasn't blazing hot! We drove over a dirt road from Ashton to Flagg Ranch which was rather harrowing but beautiful. Then we explored some of the eastern part of the park that we don't normally go to.  We saw the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which was spectacular, then went to Mammoth. We explored the Mammoth geysers and walked several miles enjoying the scenery. Not a lot of animals were visible, but we watched a coyote for a bit and saw the usual elk and bison.  It was a fun way to close our summer adventures.
