The caves are at the top!
Dang rain! Luckily it was very light and stopped soon after we started hiking.
Come on Jody - we can do it!
Are you sure there is a cave up there?
Oh no! Don't fall Dustin!
Oh yeah - we made it!

Zach has been so good lately - so we took him to Toys 'R' us. This is the first time we have taken him to that store and he actually looks around at the toys. So the piano - that was Zach's 1st toy choice....he started pounding that thing and it kept him entertained for about 5 minutes...until Dustin showed him the hammer....and then Jen showed him the spongebob.... $60 later the picture was our stash. Oh, when did 4-D sized batteries cost $7.99?
Oh if you couldn't guess...Zach is going to be a Dragon for Halloween :) He actually liked wearing the outfit...so that is a good sign!
Now when we sit back and look at this picture of Jen's middle finger - it doesn't look too bad...but the stinker sure does hurt! See the purple right above the knuckle? Well, that area was dented in for a good few hours. Dustin immediately sat Jen down with an ice pack and some ibuprofen - then went to fetch Zach out of the car...poor kid was looking forward to getting out of the house for some errands. A day later Jen can move her finger, but the knuckle is pretty sore and purple....ibuprofen and ice packs are our friends. Oh - try typing at a keyboard with a gimpy middle finger (on your right hand...yes Jen is right handed!).

Hurricanes….man, talk about a force of nature! When we lived in Austin we LOVED the storms. By the time the hurricanes hit Austin they were normally downgraded to “tropical storms” – but man were they still powerful. As you drove around town after the storms it was amazing what would get uprooted (trees, roofs, etc.). As Hurricane IKE bears down on the Texas gulf – we wish our friends in Austin the best of luck. IKE looks more powerful than anything we experienced while living in Austin – so stay inside and stay safe!

Zach's new pet...
Hilarious....we loved this sign on the way out...
Here is Zach and Dustin getting the raft all ready the night before. They were practicing fishing and catching Zach's shark.
So when Zach and Jen woke up at 8am - Dustin was already long gone....on his fishing adventure. 12:30pm rolls around and here comes Dustin walking in with DINNER! He caught 7 rainbow trout - he had to throw 3 of them back because the limit on trout is 4 per day (Utah State rule for the area he was fishing). I think he gained another star for his man card.
Proud man of his take home catch
Zach wanting to see the fish
Now time to clean up that "Fat Cat" - it will stay inflated for a few more weeks...I am sure Dustin will continue to have the bug to go fishing until it snows!

Hopefully we will be able to got lots more bike rides in during the evenings for the next month!
The tag in the jeans is a different size than the tag attached to the jeans. One of the pairs of jeans is actually a 18-24 month size. Grrr.....so you say, "well just take it to a local store and exchange it"...not that easy. Ever been to an Old Navy baby section in Utah? NO SELECTION - especially if your child is a boy. They don't have this style/type of jean in any store around. So just keep the jeans and "hope" he fits into them this winter? Hmmm...I don't know if I can wait for that either....I may just call Old Navy and complain - maybe I will get something free ;)
