Nap Time

Cael & Layne -- Taking a Nap Together

I don't know why but lately during Cael's naps he has to cover his head - it is the funniest thing. I have to go in after he's asleep and move the blanket to make sure he doesn't suffocate - I love getting him out of his crib every morning he is always talking & laughing, and you always get a huge smile. It just starts the day off so well and you never know what new thing he'll do that day, I never realized how much a mom could love their baby until I had Cael, he is such a cute boy!

Caels Cousins

On Layne's side of the family there have been six babies born with in the last year! It was Grandma Holme's 70th Birthday Party the other night so we had all of the babies there and took their pictures - it was so cute & funny trying to get all of them to look at the same time. Cael just sat there and laughed - he is the happiest baby!

Opher Loop

Last night Layne and I went with John & Lacy, and Shawn Lewis on a horse ride and took the Opher Loop. It was beautiful - the leaves are changing colors and the Elk were going crazy! Layne would bugle on his elk call and the bulls would go nuts, we saw a ton of elk. I've never been on this horse ride and it was so great, we had a great time!!

We ate Dinner At Pats Cabin

How could it get any better - good horses and your husband in chaps!

Antelope at the Boulders

After six years of putting in for Antelope I finally drew out - so Layne & I went down with his parents to the Boulder Mountains, past Loa & Bicknell (yes that is a town and there is nothing in it but hay fields) this place was amazing just sagebrush every where but it was so fun!

Layne spotted this antelope with seven does and we watched them feed and I wanted to kill something so we went after it. It was awesome - and thanks to my amazing husband as my guide - we got 300 yards from it and I killed it!

Cael was in the truck with Grandma Jeri so they came down and Cael got to see the Antelope - he is such a good hunter even in his pajamas!!

After the hunt we camped there until Sunday with Brooke, Josh & Macee and their dog Sammy (which got very attached to Layne)

Dove Hunt

If you can't tell we are a hunting family - that is what we do. On Labor Day the Dove Hunt opened so Layne took me out that night. It was so much fun, we went with Josh, David & Bart Berry. Those guys are hilarious, Gary & Tracy came out too - it was a lot of fun. I think we missed more birds than we killed but it was still a blast.

Layne & I Waiting For the Doves to Fly In....

Layne's Uncle Bart just kept on telling us stories about the good old days and we just kept on laughing. We tried so hard to sneak up on the doves when they landed so it would be an easier shot (ya that didn't work)But here are some pictures of our success
