The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Pricey Porcupine Pics!

Well, here they are. Bart didn't want to forget about his camping trip with Vern and Griffin so he went ahead and paid the astronomical amount to salvage these pics off of his broken SD card. If you ask me, they were worth it. The area was beautiful and they all had a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy!

USU Campus

Devils Slide- Ogden, Utah Canyon

Pistols we shot while out shooting.

Top left: AMT .380 (I ended up buying this one from Chris. He bought the new Ruger LCP, of which I can't afford, so the AMT was a good option for me). Top Right: Ruger LCP .380 Bottom Left: Ruger 357 Bottom Right: Ruger Mark II .22

All of them were fun to shoot. I still might get a Ruger LCP down the road to carry, just because it is so light.

Shooting with Chris and Mom.

Beautiful Iowa Scenery

Last weekend my Sister and I traveled back to Iowa for my Grandpa- George Yount's funeral. It was a beautiful service. It was good to see all of my family again. Amanda, Maliah, and Alyssa and I left Wednesday at 5:30 pm from Utah and we arrived in Epworth, Iowa at 2:00 pm on Thursday. We attended George's wake and prayer service that night. What I remember most about George is that he was always kind to everyone especially his wife. I also remember him showing us slide shows of pictures him and Arlene took from their adventures in life. It was like watching mini-movie series. I really enjoyed them and it really helped me get to know them. Friday was George's funeral and afterwards was a luncheon at the church. Amanda, Brittney and Deanne sang at the funeral and the local war veterans gave a salute at his gravesite for George's years of service in the military. It was good to see Chris's side of the family- I haven't seen most of them in years. My Mom's side of the family came as well and it was good to see them too. Saturday we had to leave already. Chris, Mom and I managed to sneak in a few minutes and go shooting. We had a homemade pizza lunch at Brittney's, stopped and vistited Arlene and then we headed to Cedar Falls, Iowa to go to Ashley Caley's wedding. It was a very nice wedding and reception. It was a convenient way to get to visit my Dad and his side of the family all in one shot. We wished we could have stayed longer but I had to be back to work and school on monday. We even managed to sneak in a visit to Grandpa and Grandma Terry before we left at 8:30 pm to head back to Iowa. We arrived back in Logan, Utah on Sunday in the afternoon. It was a good visit that went pretty quickly. I'm hoping my family and I will be able to visit at Christmas time.
