BirThDaY diNnEr

We had such a fun night on friday for my BirThDaY. Rick's present was the cutest thing ever. He bought me an oyster!?!? I had to open it and everything. So when I finally got through all the yuck of it there was a pearl. Aw, so cute. So he's going to put it into a ring for me. I just never know with him. It is always a surprise. Thanks for the fun biRtHdaY guys!

pRisbReY PetTiNg zOO

Ricks family all got together for a BBQ up in NeW hArmOny. I haven't been able to go up there at all lately so this was the first time I got to see the new miniture goats. Lucky for us too, the fallow deer just had 2 babies the night before. They weren't even walking yet. I swear Jan and Kendall might as well charge admission for the pEtTinG zOO they have.

This video isn't the best quality cause its just my camera camera. You have no idea how loud these hounds are when your right next to them. Some people had ear plugs in. Its really cool. The bear will stay up the tree while the dogs are around so you have to pull them off and take them away to let the bear to come back down.

MoAb bEar hUnT





















Another year of BeAr hUntiNg in mOab. It was a quick trip for Rick and me, but we did get to see the final Bear of the season. I think the group ended up getting 5 or 6, but they camp for the whole month. We made it up for Memorial Weekend. It was such perfect weather!! We've been up there other years with rain and snow, but this weekend was sunny.
