Scouts at Ruby's Inn

In February we took the scouts to Ruby's Inn.
They have a sweet deal for scout troops. Dinner, room, breakfast, ice skate and cross country ski rental, all for $26 per boy. We took 12 scouts and 3 leaders. It was a great trip with one exception. Not enough snow to ski, but we had lots of fun. We also took them out to Bryce Canyon. I have a friend who got us in for free and so we went through the museum and out to a few view points.

Laura and the Mink

A few weeks ago Laura and Kelsey called me screaming on the phone that some critter was in her window well. I could not tell what was going on with all the screaming so I just hung up and chalked it up to "Girls goofing off". A few hours later I came home to find them in the front yard with flashlights looking at something. I went into the house to find that she had found a picture of a Mink on the internet and was positive that was what we had. Upon investigation I found it in the bushes in the front of the house. We have a mink farm a few miles north of us and I am guessing it was an escapee. I shot it with a BB gun and was surprised that I killed it. But it was only 5 feet away. I am having it tanned so Laura can be reminded of the big mean wild ferocious animal that was in her window well.

Zane's winning Valentine box

Zane's class had a contest to make a box for Valentines. He came up with the idea and he and JoAnn built this from scraps we had around the house. It was a big hit and he won the prize for the best Valentine Box. Mr. Wilson's 5th grade class at Taylor Elementry in Payson, Utah.

Trevor & Siobhan's Wedding in Mexico

In January my little brother was married on the beach in Mexico. JoAnn and I went along with about 30 other people. It was a fast trip but we had lots of fun. It was in Plya de Carmen, south of Cancun. We stayed at the Playacar Palace and it was awesome. I went golfing one day, we had to share the course with all the jungle animals and it was lots of fun.

Elder Zack Jolley

Well Zack made it to Oregon. His trainer is Elder Larson from Wallsberg, up by Heber City. They are in Ashlund which is about 3 hours south of Eugene. They are in the temple district so he will be able to attend the temple once per quarter. His mission president called JoAnn to tell her that he made it safe and was happy to have him. He emailed us today and said he is doing great and has a baptism comming up the 8th of October.

Moab June 2011

We have NEVER been to Moab, so we decided to take a family trip to see what it is all about. Laura had a cast on her foot so she stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Jolley. She wore them both out but had a great time. The rest of us went and were able to see Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse point. It was a good trip, we hiked about 10 miles in the 2 days and stayed in a nice condo we found on KSL. KSL is awesome. Here is a link to out web album that has some geat pics.
