Jeff's Big hunt

Well he finally did it. Jeff drew out for the big elk bull hunt this year. He has been getting ready for it for a long time and has been up hunting since last Wednesday. Finally this morning about noon he got his big prize. They came up on the elk and they called him in. He approached quickly and Jeff was able to shoot him from about 13 yards away. It took off up the mountain but they found him in the meadow. He was a 6x7 and scored a 310. Big enough to make Jeff happy. It took about 5 1/2 hours to cut him apart and haul him out in pieces, besides the head of course which will be mounted and put on the wall for all to stare at. Come see us and our new addition to the family in about a year. Here are some of the wonderful pictures.

First Utes game

We had our first Utah game last week. We still sit with the family and we have so much fun. There is about 20 of us that have season tickets together. The twins were so small last year we weren't sure how they would do this year having to sit and stay in one place for so long but they did really good. They were so interested in everything going on around them. Alex kept pointing down to the field. He was very intrigued by the game going on. It was a great game and we had a blast. Also, we won so that doesn't hurt either. Hopefully we will have a great season. Here are some pictures from the game. I didn't have any of Zach. He really doesn't like his picture to be taken very much. He was there though. Just no record of it. Maybe next time.

Zach growing up

Zach started kindergarten a little over a week ago. He is loving it and not nervous at all. He is already learning sight words and starting to sound things out to read. He is great at Math, hopefully he gets those skills from me. He was excited to go. Jeff was going to walk with Zach and Jake on that first day but Jake said he would get him there so Jeff just stayed home. They want to be so independent. Happy he is getting so big. This is our annual picture outside the front door. I can't believe how big he is getting.
