Deer hunt 2008

Great time by all. No big deer to bring home, but we don't care about that these days. We just like to be together. One of the fun moments was when we tried to go out with all three of my kids, Dad, Vili, and Caleb on the four wheelers for a long hunt and long ride. All the kids were excited. It was drizzling - we thought it would stop. We rode for 20-30 minutes. The rain was coming down hard. We were wet. Kids were happy but getting colder. Tasha was still smiling until we put her between Jonah and I to keep her warm - she didn't like that at all. Then it started pouring. Dad, the kids, and I got under a tree and sent the other two boys to get the truck and come pick us up.

It was quite the adventure and the kids were in heaven. We decided to pretend we could be stranded through the night. Jonah was keeping us safe and building a shelter with fallen wood. The whole time he was quoting Bear Grills. Tasha was loving Papa while Charley tried to figure out food options.


Another highlight was an old homestead we discovered - A State Site - kids thought it was cool to have a glimpse into the past
