Stealth Cam Ride 8-30-2008

Hali, Steph, Davey, our friend Greg and I went to set up stealth cameras in our hunting area yesterday. We rode nearly all day and climbed mountains to set the cameras up in the most ideal places. We saw currant bushes full of currants, bear poop, got to and drink water from Barney Springs and took pics at the trappers cabin above our hunting camp. Hali and I took up one of the empty bottles of our drinks and tried to fill it as it dripped so slowly into the container. we all got a couple of drinks out of it.

Also Steph shot the 44-40. She kept wanting to hold it like a gangsta! ha ha ha...and Davey was so good to teach and encourage her while she shot it. Hali was the boss of course.

All in all the kids did really good. it was so much fun to be up there with family and especially to have Steph and Davey with me. Annette was home still doing her school work and getting ready for her classroom. Anyone who thinks that school teachers only work 9 months out of the year is nuts! They choose to work in a profession that is hugely under paid and worked extremely hard. Hey at least she didn't get dusty and all stuffed up from the dusty ride. We looked like saddle tramps!

This family is just the best in the world. It was fun. I guess we'll see in a couple of weeks what we have on the cams.

This weekend's Events

Well I didn't get any photos of the Jones Family Reunion but it was good to be there with many of Annette's family on her mom's side. Her uncles are amongst the finest people I know and have always been great examples to me. My favorite thing to do to them is to see if I can make them wonder why Annette ever married me. They do a very good job of reacting to it all. Anyway, It was fun to be there with everyone including Wayne and Paula. Family is everything!

Also, When We got home from church yesterday, the kids came over and E.D. had to strap up the guitar and rock and roll for us. He loves playing guitar already. I think he's going to take in his dad's and gramps footsteps. Long live guitar players!!!

Kim Smith's Baby Blessing 8-2-08

We were fortunate enough to be asked by Kim and Janet Smith to bless her baby boy. Kim said I could invite anyone I wanted so, I asked my ever two faithful sons to be there with me. Ya gotta understand how important this picture is to me. I am fortunate enough to have two sons worthy to perform priesthood ordinances with me. It was a big deal for me and also it was honor for all of us to be asked to do this.

Hey, I'm the shortest one there!
