We had a special thanksgiving dinner for the Carters today. This year is usually the odd year the we got to our spouse's family. Anyway we had a dinner at my dads house. Tex and Lisa came from Las Vegas and Tex's kids, Ashley, Weston, Trevor, and Austin were also there. We had a great time. I was working and didn't get to stay the whole time but enjoyed the time I was able to spend. Here are pictures of the event. Some great ones of the kids and of the whole family together. We don't normally all gather at once. Good times...............

Kokopelli Triathlon

Heather has been training since she had Gemma for a sprint Triathlon in St. George. Today she competed and did a great job. They first started at Sand Hollow Reservoir and swam out and back 1/2 mile. They then transitioned onto there bikes and rode around the reservoir for a total of 12.1 miles. They then ran 3 miles. I was very proud of her for doing this and she did a great job. She ran the last 200 feet with Gemma and Hallie.

We went to my dads cabin to cut some wood. I was cutting a small tree and the blade caught the edge of my pants and sucked the blade into my left thigh. I looked down and knew it wasn't good. I threw the chain saw in the pickup bed and headed up the hill to the cabin. I ran into the cabin and wrapped a couple dish towels on my leg. Heather gathered up the kids and our stuff and we were off. Heather drove down the canyon which she had never done with a trailer on. She dropped me off at the ER and took the kids to my dads. Dr. Wilson came in and gave me some shots to numb the injury, which hurt worse than the injury! Then he cut
out the damaged tissue and started stapling up the injury.
The staples were not holding the cut together right so he ended
up stitching the whole thing together. My dad says that I can't
use his saw any more that I have to use my "kiddie" saw.

7-23-2008 Yankee Meadows Fishing Trip with Imlays

I've got a fellow police Officer Jed Imlay. We decided to go fishing. Jed has a little boy named Gavin that is also my Gavin's age. After the last fishing trip I worked on Randy's boat and thought I had it working better. The first pull of the motor and the cord snapped. I was able to use the cord to get the motor started and we had a blast. Hallie came along and was nervous at first. Once she got her "Sea Legs" she had a ton of fun. She gave up her Princess pole to Jed, as his broke, and was our official net operator. Both Gavin's caught a fish and I did also. We really enjoyed ourselves. I packed a lunch so we pulled into a little cove and had lunch. Gavin and Gavin went off exploring. I hope to be able to fit in a few more of these trips before it gets to cold.

Yankee Meadows Fishing Trip

We went up to Yankee Meadows to do some fishing. I borrowed my brother, Randy's, fishing boat. I couldn't get it to run very good but we had a lot of fun. Heather and Gemma sat on the shore and watched me get very aggravated at the boat. On the way home we took a beautiful picture of the sunset.
