I caught a Fish and it was this Big..........

They have a Fishing program called Pathway To Fishing , This program teaches the kids the right way to fish and how to be a conservationist for fishing so that our next generation will have those same opportunities to fish. Tanner and Kylie wanted to take the class so i signed them up. we spent the morning going to the class and then afterword we went fishing in a near by pond. ( Lions pond).

All work and no play ( for now ,until class is over )

Getting a little practice in before we head to the pond

She's a keeper...........

We saw the fish and tried to catch them but they were just to small that they wouldn't stay on the line. We still had fun trying and it was a nice day to enjoy the weather and the company. Tanner brought his friend Micheal along, you would have thought they were fishing for sharks with the tackle they brought. I am sure the jigs were bigger than the fish themselves. Tanner is trying to talk rick into Ice Fishing.

Here fishy , fishy, fishy

No injuries thank goodness.....

I've got a bite.......

She has daddy Hook , Line and Sinker....

Where in the world is.......Dinosaur City

On our way home from our Ward Temple Day we went through a little city just outside of the Utah State line. I had to stop and take a picture of their city sign, the kids thought that it would be cool to live in this town. Even the church was called Dinosaur Church. It was a little town, it took us all about 2 minutes to get through it and that includes the 1 minute that i took to take these pictures. But i thought, what a cute name and i bet every kid thinks its awesome.

Look what is on top of the street signs little dinosaurs...way cute......

How many licks does it take?

We had a great day today. We had a Ward Temple Day, its weird not to have a temple close to you. Living in Utah you tend to take for granted how close it is. The Temple that we go to (because it is the closest) is Vernal, Utah. It take about 2 1/2 hours to get to it, Denver is about 3- 3 1/2 hours away. So off to vernal we went and we had a great day. They had some of the sisters in our ward there so they could watch the kids while we did a session. Afterwords we went a park and had a picnic and the kids had a pinata. The kids really had a great time and want to do this every weekend. My favorite part was being in the Temple with my ward family whom i consider to be friends and it really does feel like family.

On our way home Kylie was reading her sucker wrapper and the question was" How many Licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop", so she started to keep track, she had a mark for every 100 licks. ( remember its a long ride home......)

So how many licks did it take?.......... 1,556 licks OUCH!!!!! poor tongue, It was Black and Blue( just kidding it was blue cause of the color of the sucker)

Check out the shapes on her sucker its like one of those splatter pics what do you see?

(I saw a profile of a girl with a pony tail, Kylie saw a duck)

This one looked like a Bird , What do you see? Let us know. Kylie has a talent with her tongue which i will not tell her that until she gets way older.. She must get that from me. Just kidding other than i must brag, i can unwrapped a starburst with my tongue in under 10 sec.
