We thought this bear was a fun way to capture the events of our day. It's hard to believe that this guy in the background begins with a piece of wood, starts his chainsaw, and begins carving.
The kids loved the bus ride downtown. They picked us up at Walmart, which saved us a very long walk or $5 in parking! Score!
Maybe you guys can pool your money! Jared LOVED climbing on all of the 4 wheelers! He's born to ride!
Hang on girl! Jenna also wishes she had one of these, except she'd replace the camouflage with HOT PINK!
Well here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for! Who will catch the first fish? Look at the concentration on their faces. I loved how the people running the event kept telling the dads to let the kids do the catching! Brett was so patient with the kids. When I was back helping them, I just wanted to place the hook right in the fish's mouth and yell, "Fish On!" Anyway, they stock this "pool" with little trout, and let hundreds of kids fish all weekend. They have the local DJ's and news anchors wear microphones and entertain the adults while they wait in line all day. Can you think of a better way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday? (Hmm, let's see.....the spa, taking a nap, watching a movie. Okay, so those wouldn't be very good memories for the kids now would they?!)
Well, little miss Jenna caught her first fish and won this Barbie fishing pole! I was so excited because I had just purchased one to give her for her birthday, so now I can take it back! This nice man asked us if he could take a picture with her to hang in his Sportsman Warehouse store. We'll have to go check it out! (I could not get her to smile. She wouldn't even do her "tilt and smile" move that she does so well!) Oh by the way, Jared and Dallin left empty-handed. They were pretty good sports about it though and are excited to try again next year!
I don't know what cracks me up more in this photo, Jenna or Brett! Jenna loved her new friend! She was so excited to take it home with her! (Don't worry, I scrubbed her mouth and lips after this picture.)
Jenna showing off her HUGE catch! We're so proud!
Jenna loved watching Daddy cut the guts out! She was just so proud of her little catch! (Don't you just love her hairdo? I worked hours and hours to get the perfect messy look!)
