Ok, Amy and I were thinking that we have a lot of great pictures that never see the light of day on our blog, and maybe it wold be fun to show some of them. Of course, this completely wrecks our already out-of-sync blog, but what the hey.....pictures are fun!
Also pretty much in our backyard (the park is about 100 yards from our door) We had an early spring this year which flooded the river, which consequently required the power company to open ALL the floodgates at the dam!! Look at all of that Dam water!! Random note - one area on my mission was so boring, we went on a tour of the local Dam on preparation day.... the sole purpose of taking the tour (also quite boring) was so that we cold use the word "dam" a lot.
Jack Handey once wrote, “When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if not…mmmmm, boy!” Amy and I called this our "free apple pie" because Amy picked the apples for free, and we had everything else. With the cost of fruit lately, it can cost over $10 for the apples alone, so we were pretty excited about our free apple pie!
Dad and I standing by the precipice in the Logan wind caves, each of us thinking, "all it would take is a little nudge and....."
Killing clay pigeons is an old family hobby that we seldom get to do anymore. Tim and I are blasting away and hitting fewer pigeons than we would like to admit....
Dad, the master thrower of pigeons. He decided to be generous and did most of the throwing....probably so he wouldn't show us up too badly!
Almost lost in the Idaho wilderness - Mom and I exploring a trail to nowhere. This is shortly after I went bushwhacking and fell down several hills....
We took about 500 pictures of this Great Blue Heron that day - he was quite the fisherman, and we managed to get a few good pics of him catching and eating fish.
Some of these are from before we succumbed to the blessed nerdiness that is blogging, and some were just left out for the sake of breadth (or decency). So, here we go!
