Robie Creek 1/2 Marathon--2009

Today Jenny ran Robie and did awesome. I was so proud of her. She wanted to finish under 2hrs and did it in 1hr 59min and 16 sec. She did so well. She has been getting up at crazy hours in the morning all winter training for this. Now she has anoth full marathon in a few weeks in Boise. She was inspired by one of her favorite "Biggest Loser" contestants at the run. Mandy!!! she was super nice and looked great. Great Job Jenny!!!!

Jenny has committed herself to learn the discipline of Fly Fishing this year. We went on a shopping spree to Cabellas tonight and I made her model her new gear. Doesn't she look hot? There is something about women in waders. Anyway, I am very excited to get her into the water and catch some big ones. I am sure pictures will follow.

Jenny got a new Puppy for her Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday Jenny!!!! Yes, I broke down and got Jenny a dog that is good for absolutly nothing other than sitting on your lap and sleeping. He is a 7 wk old Chihuahua, and his name is "Chancho". Just saying that makes me want to go get some Chips and Salsa. He really is pretty cute and when everyone else is asleep I have gotten him out of his kennel and played with him. Think he would like going Coyote hunting? I am just asking...

First Steehead of the Year. Nice native Chromer!!!

Super cold air and water. I was able to dodge all the floating ice chunks and get a slight drift in the slushy water with a bobber and a small jid. Not a bad wild fish! Nice way to kick off a new year of great fishing! (Shorts Bar, Riggins Idaho!)

Went with the priests to "Big Judds"

Well as you can see we all went and tried our hand at attacking one of these huge "Big Juds" Burgers and Huge bowl of Tots. We all showed and gave it our best. Stu gave it a good effort and finished 3/4 of the burger and left half of the tots. Trevor Radford got weak and chickened out after less then half of the burger, the Bishop didn't try, he and Mateo both ordered a little girl burger. And Nate Drussel and I both took this mountain of beef head on and we came out victorious. And we even finished all of our Tots and made the Wall of Fame. Go to Big Juds in Boise and see our sorry mugs. I was in pain for about 48 hours. I don't think I will ever try that one again.

Abby turned eight and got Baptized!

Abby turned eight and got baptized!!!! She has been waiting for this for a long time. It was a very special day for her and all the rest of us. We are really proud of her and what a cute young lady she is becoming. There are too many wonderful things about Abby to list here, but we are grateful that she is in our family, and are lucky to be her Dad and Mom!

First Coyote hunting trip of the year! (Colton finally was able to come)

This morning Colton and I went on our first Coyote Trip of the year. I talked about it last night and he was at my bed side at 5:00am asking me, "Is it too early to go yet?" I had him crawl in bed for another hour and then we got up and drove out to the Murphey flats. We didn't shoot any this morning but did call in a couple close enough to see and hear but couldn't get them to come any closer so we could get a shot off. It is still a little early, but as it gets closer and they get hungrier they should be a little easier to call in. He did get a chance to shoot my Glock 17. I thought that would be a good idea, (Pre-Obama) while he still has the constitutional right to keep and bare arms! Isn't America great?

2nd Annual Riggins Stealhead trip at "shorts bar!"

This was the second Annual Steelhead trip, I took with Jerry Anderson up to Riggins. We set up my new Wall Tent and camped right in front of our favorate fishing hole for 5 days. As you can see the fishing was phenomenal, and the food as just as good. Dad and royce west both made if up for a great day of fishing as well. Stay tuned for more pictures because we are going to repeat the trip in mid November with Dave and Austin Bradshaw! Life really doesn't get any better than this!!!!!!!

Jenny Ran in the "Prison Break" 1/2 Marathon on Saturday!

Jenny ran in the "Prison Break" 1/2 Marathon on Saturday. It was really neat. They had it out at the Idaho State Penitentiary. As you can see from the pictures they had the riot squad out there to do the starting line. And they even had a flyby from the search and rescue planes. She beat her personal best by 4 minutes and 45 sec. She was very pleased and we were very proud of her!
