A night at the Cannery

I am going to try and get the process down for ya, cause it's a pretty complicated deal! It starts out with the peaches being washed and loaded into a big bin where guys get all wet as they take off the leaves. Then they go up the shoot and a few people pick out the mooshy ones. Then they all get put in their little cubby and turned so they can go through the cutter. They then get cut in half and shimmied down the hill into hot steam where they get so hot that the skin wants to come off. Then they get de-pitted as they go up the conveyer belt and then out the shoot they go to where we were standing. we de-pitt the ones that were forgotten and then we make sure they're good and put them on a different conveyer belt. They go into another bit pot and are broght over to the canners and they put them in the can. They go through a hot hot steam oven thingy and i guess that's where they cook and then there is a lot of water and the water gets pushed out of them and a lid goes on the can and is sealed and up the shoot they go to be compressed I think. I'm not sure if they actually get cooked again. But over to boxing they go and off to who knows where in the world! Everytime I go to the cannery I am amazed at Heavenly Father's work! The church is true! It's just too organized and manned from heaven not to be!

Utah Fair

Can't forget the angus beef chart so you can know exactly what you eat!

Here we are with the cute pigs. There were the cutest little piggies! I loved it. I loved all the animals. I love how there are these amazing animals raised by individual people, kids in high schools who worked really hard to make it happen.

cute Piggies
This goat was totally into me!

Amy, Kristen, Veronica and I all went to the Utah Fair. It was the first fair I have been to since I was like 13 with Kimberly Williams for her clogging show! We saw the biggest cow I've ever seen. Lots of junk food and fun photo opportunities!

Inspiring words from Sister Hinckley

She's left this realm and is still inspiring people everyday...now that's a gift!

I just read this quote today from Sister Hinckley and loved it. “We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.” --Marjorie Pay Hinckley.
I love it! It is truly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time. Especially since, constantly from all sides I feel like I have to prove something, when in essence those who love me most know all my faults. Interesting how that works! I just need to learn to be content with who I am and who is that??? so many things! and most importantly a daughter of Heavenly Father who was sent to this earth for so many reasons, but most of all to return home with His other Children!
The follow up scripture to that was: For all have not every gift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God. To some is given one and to some is given another that all may be profited thereby. Doctrine and Covenants 46:11-12
