YEhhhhhhhh Football has started

Well, it's that time of year again....FOOTBALL SEASON!!! YIPPPPPEEEEE
Football is by far, one of my favorite sports to watch Gav play...same with Eric.
This year Kodi is going to try playing as well. We have our hesitations... he is 8 yrs old, and our lover, not our fighter. He is not very in shape for his age..and is finding that the running just plain SUCKS!!! All of that aside, he seems to love it. We are happy that he is enjoying it thus far.... he will have a better idea if he likes it or not after a month of heavy conditioning. We are proud of him for giving it his all. And then their is Gavin.... their isn't a sport, or a position that he can't do...and its a blast to watch him. I will try to post some pics as they get into the season a bit.

What are we to do???????

Go to this link to see what a silver fox looks like

Wellllllllllllllllllll we have NO KIDS this weekend.
Kodi is at his mom's (poor kid) and Gavin is with a friend for the weekend.
Its nice to have a weekend to ourselves, but what are we to do???? SCOUT ELK...of course!!!!
Eric and I took a nice 5 hrs yesterday and got the opportunity to scout some new area, and see some cool stuff!! Got on several head of elk....(right were we knew they would be..once again I could tell ya but Id have to kill ya!!) Then at about 9 o'clock we were heading out of the woods....when a black/gray dog ran across the front of the truck, and down the enbakement.... it was a SILVER FOX!! Eric knew right away what it was...took me a minute. That was one of the coolest thing by far we have seen while out in the woods. A silver fox is the same thing as Red Fox (which both of us have ever seen only once or twice) only its different due to its coloring. (we know this after googling it)And of course neither of the boys got to see it...bummer deal. Another first Eric and I had together!!! I have friends that only wish they could have a relatinship like mine and Eric's..we are so lucky that we found each other, its not very often you find someone who has the same interests and loves in life............while one or two of you say "My wife doesn't have to do everything I do" 99% of our friends envy the closeness and the relationship we have.....and this was one of those times that we got to see something special and rare together and will never forget it!!

Eric and I headed up on Saturday evening to scout some of our elk areas. Anyone who knows me, knows that this is one of my very FAVORITE things to do prior to elk season. We got up into some High Country, and found some area we hadn't ever been into before.... and all I can say is..IT WAS AWESOME. We stumbled across a bear track that no kidding.... the pad alone was about 4 inches wide(in case ya don't know.... that is one BIG bear) You can see a picture of it here, where Eric placed one of his Bullets in it showing you just how big the track is. Neither Eric or I have ever got the chance to shoot a Bear so we were pretty jacked to see this. We would love to get one. Also crossed over quite a few cow elk with calves.. in our same usual place we see them....( if I posted where it was Id be dumb...LOL) Also two large bucks in full velvet a smaller one and his BIG brother that was a solid 5x5 that was enormous. Anyhow, was a lot of fun, and was a good time just Eric and I. We both have the itch for Hunting season!!!

4Th oF JuLy CaMpInG

Gavin, Austin and Princess D Loungin at camp in the tube

Gavin and Kodi on the inner-tube

Kodi and Austin Building a home for their freshwater clams and crawdads

Gavin and his buddy Shane with their squirt guns after a ride on the inner tube WOW What an awesome weekend us and the boys had!!! We headed out early Friday morning (4th of july) for some fun camping and boating...when we got up it was thunder and lightening outside. YUCK.....but as we got into our day the clouds burned off, and out came the sunshine. We were so lucky to go with our GOOD friends Mike and Christy who we just luuuuuuuv, and they spoiled the boys all day with innertubing and boat rides. Some of Christy's friends also met us at the beach, and they brought their Jet skis- they were so kind and let everyone ride.......the boys had a blast!!! The boys got to do just about everything, and Kodi was sooooo fascinated with the Fresh water clams and the crawdads. After a hard day boating and playing we headed to camp and hung out by the camp fire, eating burgers and hot dogs, and the kids made some smores.
I got wayyy to much sun and didn't feel so hot, so on saturday Eric and I headed home and Mike and Christy, the sweet people they are, kept our boys so they could boat all day Saturday. Eric and I came home and rested for a bit and took a trip to the mountains to scout(more on that in another post) Anyhow, all and all we had a awesome time...and so did Gavin and Kodi. Thanks so much Mike and Christy for hangin with us and being so good to our boys!
