Deer Hunting Redux

Headed out last Wednesday afternoon.
The Rich's were fortunate to get an offer they couldn't refuse.
Two beautiful bucks were the result
(Treyson stayed home, he doesn't much enjoy hunting, and didn't want to miss scouts) 
A nice three point
And a huge two point

Finally Fly Fishing !!! It happened :)

Last Christmas I gave my guys a combined Christmas gift, of a half day fly fishing event with 801 Flyfishing (Derrick Roskelley, a great family friend).  The first scheduled day to go was March 4, 2017.  Because of the high water all spring and even into the summer, it was postponed time and time again.  Finally on November 4th (8th months later) they got it done !  The day was overcast, and rain was threatening, but it turned out WONDERFULLY !!
He supplied them with waders, rods, reels, flies..........
Derrick and a friend taught them, tied the lines, unhooked the lines, fish (catch and release), and took the pictures.  
Love to get a smile of of this guy !
They all loved it.
They started up in Round Valley on Rees' property, and then also near the high school, just off the walking path.
SUCH A GREAT DAY !!!

A little Crazy at Costco

Last Saturday after Payson's ballgame, I made the brave trek to Costco ON A SATURDAY!!!!!!!!!!!  with the littles.  Yes, I am BRAVE !   I made up my mind before I went into the store that I was just going to go with the flow, not be in a hurry, be very very patient, not get upset, etc. etc. etc.   I did ALL of the above, and it was pretty fun.  We walked around the entire store, loaded up with what I needed, went into the COLD COLD coolers (they loved it), and visited every food kiosk at the end of every aisle, and got goodies to eat !   Oh, the traffic, people, noise, fun,.........    
Afterwards in the parking lot
THEY WERE ALL SO AWESOME IN THE STORE
and we had a grand time. 
Love these LITTLES

Sportmanship Award !

While Dad was playing and Mom was working, I took Payson to his basketball game last Saturday.  Just me and the 3 littles.  Fun times.  It was a lopsided game, with the other team scoring 16 points, and Payson's only 5.  He was pretty disheartened, and if any of you know how competitive he is, you can imagine.  Each time another basket was made by the other team, he would grit his teeth, look at me in the stands, and resolutely head to the other end of the court.


At half time, he came over to us, and I thought he would be all dejected, but then he said, "Guess what Grandma?  I know why they are winning...........THEY ARE 7TH GRADERS !!!!"   I got such a kick out of that statement.  Yup, 7th graders playing kindergarteners....... Yup Yup Yup.


At one point after half time, when the other team mistakenly sunk a basket in the wrong goal, he whipped around, face grinning at me, and gave me two thumbs up !  He was STOKED !!

It was a very nice and well deserved surprise when he received the SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD of the GAME.  He totally deserved it.  Such a good kid.   Stay tune in tomorrow's blog post to see what we did AFTER the game !  This Grandma is BRAVE !!!
