Shot Gun Shooting

Kirt, Tanner, Sam, Travis, and Ben went clay pigeon shooting. Tanner hit one clay pigeon. He had lots of using the pigeon thrower. They also went to Uncle Sam's pheasant farm. Sam raises pheasants for pheasant hunters.

Climbing Wall

We went to the Vernal Rec center while we were there for Thanksgiving. We went swimming, played basketball and the kids got to do the climbing wall. Tanner got almost all the way to the top.

Dinosaur Museum

We went to the Dinosaur Museum in Vernal. We took our cousins Megan, Brooke and Travis with us (Cindy and Sam's kids). Dinosaurs are always a big hit with the kids. Of course they pretty much run through the museum as fast as they can. Heck with reading anything or actually learning anything about the dinosaurs.

Lava Hot Springs

For Thanksgiving this year we drove down to see Kirt's family in Utah. His mom and dad came over from Hawaii and 6 of his 8 siblings came. It was fun to see everyone. We hung out and played lots of games. It was a long drive, but it was worth it to see our family. We also went shot gun shooting, to the dinosaur museum and the the Vernal rec. center. On our way down to Vernal, we stopped and stayed the night in Lava Hot Springs and went to the hot springs. There was a swimming pool with 2 diving boards and a climbing wall that is warmed from the hot springs that we went to first. Katie jumped off the high dive. She is fearless. Then about 1/2 mile away there are a bunch of hot tubs with hot water from the hot springs ranging from 102-112 degrees. We wrapped ourselves in our towels and ran into the 20 degree night, drove to the hot tubs and ran and jumped in the warm water. It was kind of crazy. Of course our children loved the hot springs considering their extreme love of hot tubs. Then in the morning we got up and went and visited Kirt's Grandma Christensen. She lives about an hour from the Lava Hot Springs in Mink Creek Idaho.

Hot Tub Time

We are not allowed to say the word Hot Tub in our home until we are completely ready to get our suits on and walk right out to it. If we say hot tub, Garret runs to his room and gets his swim suits (yes usually more than one) and starts trying to get in one of them. Then he proceeds to get a swim suit out for everyone else in the house. You think that he likes sitting in the hot tub?
