Answered prayers about a Pickup

A couple weeks ago our family went Goat-camping and we took our pickup to haul the goats. We traveled over 500 miles to Wapiki Lake, near Indian Heaven Wilderness.

Before we left, I checked the antifreeze and oil in the pickup, but forgot to put the cap back on the antifreeze. I left the cap sitting on the engine and closed the hood.

About an hour down the highway one of the kids just "had" to go potty, so we pulled off. I noticed antifreeze streaming out. Bad sign. I looked under the hood and noticed the cap wasn't on. And there was the cap, sitting right where I left it. It hadn't even fallen off! Fortunately I had tossed in a couple extra bottles of antifreeze before we left so I filled it, along with some extra water, and we continued our journey.

I think Lynae was trying to figure out why all those flashes were coming from that strange little box.

I don't know why, but I think messy faces are kinda cute... until one has to clean them up!

Here's a pic of the fire bomber, working to put out the fire just over the hill from our house!

We had excitement today! Just over the hill in front of our house was a wildfire. We had fire-engines go by our house, heard airplanes overhead, and even had a fire bomber come by!

We hiked to the top of the hill just as the sun was setting... and this is what we saw.
