Boat Fun!

So, we decided to buy my cousin's boat and take up boating. Actually, we have both always loved boating and water activities, but have never purchased a boat. Even though it is nearing the end of the season and I can't do much this year, we wanted to have it ready for next season and take the new baby out and have some fun family time! Here are a few pics from the first trip out on the new boat; it was a blast! Curt came up with us and Kelly brought Kendell and Cameron up for some fun times! Even though I couldn't try the wakesurfing or wakeboarding, I still loved watching Kelly and Curt try it out!

It's a Girl!

For those of you who didn't know, we are having a baby! I am 20 weeks now and we had our "big" ultrasound today and everything looked good! It is definitely a girl; now we can start shopping and doing all of the fun stuff! We have been really nervous and sort of keeping it quiet since I had a miscarriage about a year ago. I am sure we will continue to be nervous until she is born. Actually, I am not sure parents ever quit worrying about their children. We are both really excited to be expecting and Blake felt his first kick this afternoon! Here are a couple of pictures from our ultrasound today. Maybe I'll get brave and post some belly pictures sometime!

This year graduation has been an exciting time in Morgan's family. Earlier this year, my dad was asked to give the commencement address at Weber State University. At first he wasn't sure about agreeing to give it, but after he thought about what an honor it was to be asked, he decided to do it! So, on May 1st he was given an honorary doctorate degree and gave the commencement address. We were so proud of him! He did such a great job and I really think everyone really enjoyed his speech. There were even times when he had to stop for the audience to applause. It truly was a great honor for all of his many accomplishments! Here are a couple of pictures from that day.

Then, a week later, Erik graduated from the University fo Utah with his Masters of Finance degree. We are so proud of him too! I know he has been pretty stressed out for the last few months trying to finish all of his requirements, but I am sure it is well worth it today and forever! We are very excited for him and congratulate him on his accomplishment! I also noticed the ribbon around his gown for his GPA; congrats Erik! Here are a couple of pictures from his graduation this morning!

March Madness!

A couple of weekends ago, Blake, Curt, Ty, Randi, and I went to southern California to stay with my parents and enjoy the NCAA basketball games! We decided nothing was better than hanging out by the pool watching the games, right? We had such a good time relaxing, trying to get a tan, and of course, eating! None of us wanted to come home to the cold weather here in Ogden! Here are a few pictures from sunny Palm Desert.

Catching Up!

Here are some pictures from a few things we have been doing lately! About a week ago, Blake went on a snow goose hunt and had a great time! They shot quite a few birds and even shot a collared one! Yep, that one is going to the taxidermist!

Then, last week, Blake, Curt, and I went down to the Sportsman's Expo and you could hold a baby bear and have your picture taken with it (for $10)! Blake and Curt didn't want to pay the money, but I convinced them it was worth it :) We had our picture taken with one of the 2 month old cubs and then we could pet the other one for as long as we wanted. All three of us wanted to bring him home to play with! His paws were so fun to play with and when Blake started scratching his belly, the bear stretched out on his back and just enjoyed it! It was a blast!

Coot's Surgery

Since we don't have any children, Coot is like our child; so, I will write about him today. Coot has always had ears that tend to get allergies and get sore and need medicine. They don't get truly infected, just itchy and swollen. Well, this winter has been especially hard on one of his ears and he itched it so bad that he had to have surgery! He gave himself a hematoma on his right ear and Jason (our vet) had to drain it. Poor hound! It actually resembled cauliflower ear that an MMA fighter would get! So, yesterday he had the surgery. He has been wearing a "collar" for about a week to get some of the inflammation down and keep him from scratching it. Now, he has to wear the "collar" for 3 more weeks until the stitches come out. Speaking of the stitches, it must have been pretty bad because I thought the stiches would just be in a straight line, but instead are all over the place and are as thick as fishing line. He was pretty groggy last night, but still managed to whine from the pain; it really made us feel bad!

Here are a couple of close ups of his actual ear and the stitches. Just the hair growing back would make it itch!

We tried to keep his mind off of it by giving him a bone, but he just started to fall asleep with it in his mouth!

We haven't posted forever! I guess since Blake has the cast and blast blog, I haven't put as many hunting trips on here. I will have to update with the best of the season! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! We had a great Christmas and fun New Year's.

My mom and dad hosted a fun superbowl party! Most of us were hoping for the Cardinals to win, so it was a little disappointing, but still fun! It was a pretty fun crew, we had Ty, Randi, and Colby, Erik and Sarah and some of their friends, and all of my mom's sisters that live here! Here are some pics from the party!

Here are Erik and Sarah hanging out with Ella, their friends little girl! We told Erik and Ella that the Bears didn't make it, but they didn't care!

This is my aunt Lori and Ella's mom, Anna

You can tell I didn't feel like fixing my hair that day!
