Palm Trees & Swans!

This weekend was pretty eventful and fun!

On Saturday, Andrew helped one of the guys from work plant a palm tree in their front yard. We did get some pictures of them transfering the tree from the truck to the hole, which was pretty entertaining to watch! Hopefully we will be able to get some of those from them at some point! After they were done with Bryan's tree, they started talking to the guy across the street. He had been planning on getting a palm tree, but he didn't want to dig the hole, so he paid Andrew 50 bucks to dig the hole for him! Now Andrew's back is very sore! Poor guy; except he is $50 richer!

Sunday after church, we went to feed the ducks, but we decided to go to a different pond on the golf course. Last week as we drove by this pond, we noticed there were swans there! When we got to the pond yesterday, the swan was chillin' on the golf course across the pond from us. When it realized that we were feeding the ducks it came flying over. It's wingspan was amazing, and it was so graceful! When it landed, it was like it was waterskiing! It was really neat! Unfortunately, our camera was out of batteries! We plan on going back to that pond this Sunday. Hopefully we will be able to get a picture of it flying! I have never seen a swan before, and I never thought that I would see one in St. George, UT of all places!!!

  1. Yay for swans! That's so fun. That's ironic about you camera. You should totally take pics next week. Man, I miss you guys so much! I want to fly to St George and feed swans with you!
