Fun family fishing trip. Caught a couple fish and enjoyed the day. Kloee even touched the fish. Kloee said she didn't want to eat fish because that's yucky. So...we gave her some and told her it was chicken. She said it was yummy so after we ate Jerry told her it was fish. I thought she was going to freak out and then never eat chicken again for fear that it was fish again. Instead she said "REALLY...yummy, I do like fish. I can't believe I like fish." Funny!!
There was also a drilling competition in Dove Creek on 4th of July. There's lots of how they have to do it. If they don't do it exactly right, or follow each rule, they can be disqualified or have seconds added to their final time. They each get timed and obviously, the fastest time wins. Jerry's time was the fastest!! Yay!! Pretty good day...caught a pig and won a drilling competition. That's my man!! Walked away about $400 richer. Not bad!!
We went to an old fashioned fair type event in Dove Creek Colorado. Jerry got in on the pig chasing action too. Only yes...he caught his!! I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it in my life. There was about 40-50 men lined up to sprint to this pig. The announcer says GO and off they went. It's a dead sprint to the pig. Jerry and a couple other guys are neck and neck, then Jerry cuts to the left and takes a flying leap at the 400 lb. pig. He wrapped up and didn't let go. It looked like a football play. I kinda felt bad for the pig. He probably didn't even know what hit him. It was really funny and really awesome. Never know when years and years of football will come in handy. I am proud!!!
Kloee was in the pig chase in Dove Creek, Colorado. She was the first one to get to the pig and as soon she got to it, she turned around and cried. She was afraid of it. Then, she cried for an hour after because she didn't catch the pig. She said "I want my own piggy" and "I hate losin'." It was pretty funny to watch though. Maybe next year she will catch it!!
We took Kloee to the Hogle Zoo for the first time. It was so much fun. Logan, Billy and Sheila met us there. Kloee and Logan are so cute together. They both had attitudes here and there. Made me feel better about Kloee's attitude. Kloee loved the giraffes. Jerry loved the bird show and I loved it all. Wished I could have seen the turtles a little closer. The trip was very special.
We went to the aquarium in Sandy, Utah. Kloee loves fish and other sea creatures. She used to love octopuses until she saw this one in real life. It was moving up and down in it's tank. It looked kinda weird. She does not like them anymore... :) It was really fun.
Kloee's friend Jocelyn had a princess themed birthday party and the girls got to wear princess dresses to the party. It was so cute and Kloee loved it. Jocelyn's mom made a big castle out of cardboard. Very creative!! Jerry said we can't do that kind of party for Kloee's birthday though. He'd rather have some kind of sporty party or something...
My Aunt Julie, cousin Kathryn and Grandma Sehi came out to Moab from California. It was so special that they made the trip. Kloee had a blast with my cousin. We went to the Hole n the Rock and took the tour and went to the petting zoo. Julie cooked some great meals that Jerry actually liked...which is hard to do because the guy is quite picky!!
