Things we saw & did in Soda Springs

We went to my parents house for the weekend to make chocolates. My mom has learned how to make hand dipped chocolates from my dad's sister. So we decided to give it a shot. Here are some pictures. We made mint, vanilla and maple nut chocolates and peanut clusters.

Adding some flavor to them.

THE FINISHED PRODUCT - DON'T THEY LOOK SO GOOD.



We also saw a musk rat walking down the street in front of our house. I live on the main road that goes through Soda and the huge rat was just walking down the street minding his own business. He finally walked over into the Alco parking lot, we figured he was just going to pick up a few things.
