Hawaiian Thanksgiving 2008

Last Christmas all the Jolley family talked about going somewhere for a vacation all together. We all decided to go to Hawaii for Thanksgiving. We had 18 of us all together. We were only missing one of my brothers and his family. It was lots of fun. We rented a beach house where we could all stay together, it had a pool and a hot tub as well. We went to Costco and bought the food and shared the cooking assignments. We went swimming, snorkeling, took a snokle cruise, went sight seeing to the volcano, sent to a laua, went sport fishing (which turned out to be chumming and no fish) and had lots of fun. Everyone got along well and we all had fun. We all would do it again in a heart beat, if money were no object. After we returned home we went on the Polar express in Heber City and Zane asked Santa for a return trip to Hawaii for Christmas this year. So, I know he had a great time.

Deer Hunt 2008

Trevor drew out on the Pansaguant for deer this year and so we have spent time scouting and looking for that big buck. We did find a few very good ones before the hunt, but that is BEFORE the hunt. We hunted hard and saw lots of bucks and some good ones that we passed on. Then right in Tropic Trevor shot this one. It was a great hunt. We saw lots of animals, shot some chuckers, shot at a few coyotes, but missed, and just spent time with Dad and my brothers. That was the best part.

Labor Day 2008

This summer we decided to invest in motorcycles, well I decided. Everyone now has a bike and we have had lots of fun. We went to Tropic, down by Bryce Canyon and spent a few days. We rode bikes around Troipc resiviour and at Grandma's in Marysvalle on the way home. We also went into the park and did the tourist thing. We have never taken the time to actually go into Bryce and show the kids where we both worked and see the sights. They enjoyed seeing the view points and listening to our stories about things we did and were we worked before we had kids. JoAnn worked in the lodge as a hostes in the dining room just after we were married. I worked on a youth conservation group when I was 12 and also worked with my grandpa on the horse rides for a couple summers. It was fun to see things again and see some of the changes over the years.

More Orlando

Disney World July 2008

This past July we went to Orlando for a Business conference and vacation. We went to Disney world. Part of the conference our kids went to "Camp Cardinal".

Camp Cardinal is put together by Cardinal Health, my wholesaler for work. They have kids split up into age groups and take them to area attractions. They were able to go to Universal Orlando, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Kennedy space center and many other things. They made friends from all across the country and had a great time. As a family we went to all the Disney parks. I even went for a ride at over 150 mph at the Rishard Petty race experiance. It was very exciting and I would do it again. We experienced the HUMIDITY, got to say "not a fan of that". It is green everywhere, and lots of water. I was a bit shocked at how dry we are here when we got home and were driving home.

We had a good time and the conference was pretty good as well. I won an iPod and a $2000 balance that I use at work.

4 Wheeler trip

June 23, 2008 Marysvale Utah

My Dad invited me to go with him on this ride.

He is part of a group of education people from around the state.

We had superintendents, business officials, bankers, and lots of others.

We went up onto the Beaver mountains from the Marysvale side.

We saw beautiful vistas, old mine areas, wild life, snow and lots of dust.

It was a great trip. At one point we were on a peak that was 11,300 feet.

Horse Colt

Wednesday May 28, 2008

Payson, Utah

We woke to a new colt this morning. Both Misty and the colt are doing fine.
His daddy is a red roan with a dorsal stripe. He has the stripe and is a bit lighter now. He also has 2 white socks.
I think he will end up looking like his daddy.
He also has a blaze that gives him some character.
