Shooting from the hip

So while Breanne was visiting me for her Spring Break I had one of my friends and his brother take us out shooting. Neither Breanne nor I had ever shot a gun before, so it was really fun! Breanne is a natural. She was hitting almost all of the clay pigeons they put in front of her... I, on the other hand needed a little more practice. Breanne was able to hit a flying clay pigeon on almost her first try.... I, on the other hand failed miserably. So although it was a little chilly out and I basically wasn't very good at it, we still had a ton of fun and can't wait to go again!

Anyone with a gun who's willing to take me, let me know ;)

Fantastic Four

Jensa and Ryan came down to Salt Lake to go to an Elite Eight game of the NCAA tournament. Since they came down- Breanne and Nathan and I made a trip up. We had the usual meeting place of grandma and grandpa's aka Hotel Raiser. It was so great to be with them- even if it was only for a day.
I started messing around with Jensa's camera and began having Chase do action shots jumping off the step. That quickly evolved into a full blown photo shoot where over 70 pictures were taken of these three doing various jumping poses off of the steps. It was quite a fun 30 minutes =)
And finally, a fort was built. Forts have become a regular occurrence when the four of us (Nathan, Me, Chase and Ava) get together. I have to say this is one of the better forts I've constructed. It had plenty of room for kids and aunts and uncles! We just HAD to take a picture in front of it.

Although it was a short visit on my end, it was so much fun! I love family!!!!!


I went out to visit Elise in Texas for part of my spring break a few weeks ago. She lives in Buda which is just outside of Austin. I got to do a lot of sight seeing along with getting in a lot of quality time with Elise, Lane, and Danelle. We went to San Antonio and walk along the River Walk.
We also got to see the Alamo... and remember it =)
We went to the zoo where Danelle had a great time watching all the people and pointing to the animals. Most of the ones she recognized she knew from the Disney movie Madagascar.
And what's a trip to Texas without have some BBQ? We went to a place called Salt Lick which has some of the best meat I've ever eaten.... Danelle enjoyed licking off the tasty sauce.

All in all it was a fun and relaxing trip! The weather was perfect... I couldn't spend enough time out in the sun. It almost made me forget that I had to wait 9 hours in the Denver airport on standby on my way back home. But it was all worth it to get to see family and visit all of those great places!
