Elk Hunting Fun!

First the accommodations....

The terrain.....

Beautiful sunset.....

Finally the reason for the trip.....

Bud was first...just a half hour into the week of hunting!

Chase got his the end of day 2.

Jud got his around noon on Thursday.

Dean got his just minutes before he was going to be done on Friday. Someone on Facebook said it was the Bambi of elk. Just sayin.....

And now Bud can cross that off of his bucket list! I know he had a fantastic time.

And now maybe I won't have to spend so much time at Bass Pro!! :)

And a Good Time Was Had by All!!

We really enjoyed the time spent with Mom, Dean, Gay, and Kathy in June at the campground. I think we should make it a yearly thing. Of course there was a little food consumed along with some Dutch oven cooking!

I believe there was some cherry pie in that other Dutch oven. The next night we made rhubarb cream pie which was also yummy!

All of the kids came out to visit one night or the other.

One day Mom, Gay, and I did some quilt shop hopping. Some fabric may have come home with us!

Bud worked while Kathy and Dean drove around aimlessly.

The next day Kathy joined us for some more quilt shop hopping. We're going to turn her into a quilter yet! Some more fabric came home with us, although I donated the majority of my money to the state of Iowa at the request of the Iowa State Patrol. (B@@&ch!). Bud and Dean visited sporting goods stores. A few guns may have come home with one of them!

We sorted through family photos and reminisced. And we visited with a cousin that Dean met for the first time in his adult life.

The weather was a little wet, and the lake was closed to boating because of flooding. Next year we'll golf and boat if the weather cooperates!

Join us???

Will you join us?
