This last weekend we had such a great time. We headed to Star Valley to visit the fam. Passing through Preston we decided to stop and say hi to the Despains. We thought it would be fun to have the cutest girls come tag along with us for the weekend. We had so much fun! My pour mother in-law spent the whole Saturday keeping us happy. She is so great! Ty also got a lot done. Saturday morning he went duck hunting and shot 5 ducks. While we were in the house all day doing crafts, Ty was outside making these spiders for holloween that I have been wanting for a while now. His dad made one for his mom last year and ever since then I have wanted one. I didn't even have to ask. He is such a great guy! We sure had a great weekend.

Hunting Weekend!

Dang my husband is good lookin!

While they were pulling the elk down the mountain, they stumbled across moose sheds. They were together as a pair. That doesnt happen very often. That is what is on top of the elk just in case you were wondering.

While I was in Iowa this last weekend visiting the hansen's, Ty decided to go up to Star Valley and go with his brother to get his elk. They shot their elk but not realizing it until it was to late, the area that they shot it was some pretty steep country. They new that I was going to be a chore to get that elk out. They ended up having to go back the next morning to get it out because they wouldn't of been able to before dark. This time they brought help along. What they had to is hike down there and completely cut the meat off the bones and put it in sacks and pack it out in there back packs. Ty's pack I believe was 56 pounds, Darnell's was 64 and there friend Ryan's was 69. They sure had a lot of meat on there backs. I'm glad that my husband had such a great time. He always has a good time when he gets to hang out with his older brother. I'm excited to be able to have some of that meat cause we sure like elk in our house.
