We just got back! Yep Jory and I went down to Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo and we had a BLAST! Jory and I go every year together and always have a great time! We stayed at the Stratosphere Hotel and Bob, Jody and the boys were stayin there too! Here are some fun pics from our weekend.Jesse boy in the dummy ropin!

He caught on all 3 trys so that put him in the finals for the next day. Unfortunately while he was roping in the finals he stepped on the line and got disqualified. All I can say is lucky for the other kids cause Jesse is so stinkin GOOD! Good Job Jess!

This is Me, Jody and Bobby at Binion's eatin Shrimp cocktails! It's funny we end up there every year for shrimp cocktails with them, I think we are starting a new tradition!

Jory and I on Freemont street with the cool light show above us!

Jory being a tard! This was at the Toby Keith Bar hence the dorky hat!

Okay my new favorite place! This is the aquarium at the Bass Pro Shops in the Silverton Lodge and Casino. Oh my goodness it was so neat! The Bass Pro Shop is awesome, you have to check it out if you have never been! And the Silverton Lodge was was gorgeous and has tons of neat things to check out! We have never stayed there but we are for sure going to next time!
At the Bass Pro Shop

Can you see the Elk behind us?? Ha we were tryin to fit em in but they are freakin huge!

This was probably one my best highlights besides the rodeo! This is in the Silverton Lodge at one of the cafes. It's mini bowling in a airstream trailer! Oh my it was so much fun! We were laughing the entire time! You have these tiny little bowling balls and the lanes are so short!

Jory always WINS!

This ally was just my size':)

Okay so the BEST part of our weekend was the Rodeo! We went on the final night and had AMAZING seats thanks to Neil! Oh my goodness we LOVED it! We sat 3rd row right in the center of the arena! I can't even tell you how awesome it was! We got some good pics but our camera was dyin so sorry about the blurry ones!

Trevor Brazil heading and Patrick Smith healing! Trevor Brazil one the all around, he is amazing!

This is Wes Silcox from Payson. We talked to his girlfriend Amanda earlier in the day at the Silverton Lodge, she said he had been sick all day with the flu! Plus he is just getting back from a broken leg and he had been roughed up all week! He was close on this bull but didn't make the whistle!

Steve Wolsey from Spanish Fork

The buckle and awards ceremony after the rodeo, that was fun to watch Jory and I have never been to the final night before so we were pretty pumped!

Me and J

This was just right in front of our seat!

Jory and I in the Thomas and Mack Center for the NFR!

Happy Sumo and Temple Square

So my little Bro and his girly Onna are living in Logan right now, so I decided that we should start having a date night once a month and meet in the middle since they NEVER come to see us! Anyways Trav and Onna drove down and met us in Salt Lake to do dinner and see the Temple lights! It was a lot of fun and of course I will take any chance to see them, I love to be with them both! Neither of them have driving much in a busy place like SL so Onna was freaking out trying to get there and Trav was not a very good director so it was interesting and funny trying to explain it all to them. Jory and I had to wait FOREVER for them to finally arrive at Happy Sumo. It was okay thought cause we ordered lots of yummy appetizers! We had a great night and I can't wait for our next date night!Trav and Onna at Happy Sumo!

Jory and I

Temple Square was fun, it was really COLD! I wanted to go on a carriage ride but no one else was with me so we just walked around and checked it all out!

Grant, Onna and I
The lights were so awesome to bad it was hard to enjoy them cause we were freezing to death!

Our Weekend for Thanksgiving!

Jory and I spent Thanksgiving in Fillmore with his family this year. Here are some pics from our weekend. It was a blast! Sorry they are so late!Bobby, Johnse, Brittany, Marci, Jory and Jodi. On our 4 wheeler trip up the canyon. It was cold but fun, I had never been up there before so I loved it!

Jody and Bob

Jory and I ready to go!
This was my favorite night! After Thanksgiving dinner we went out to the hot pots in Fillmore. They were so neat! We all just chilled, relaxed and stayed warm!

When we got there someone had already been there before us and built a nice fire. I am not sure who owns the property but they dive down and keep the hot pots cleaned out so they are nice and clean when you get in. Also they didn't smell!

Jaci, Me, Britt and Mindi after our yummy Thanksgiving dinner!

Neil, Callan and Jory

Okay this was so funny, Jory was jumpin on the PoGo stick ( might I add that it was a antique PoGo stick ) and he was showin off doing tricks.......well he biffed it and went flying in to the hot tub. He even broke the wood at the base of the hot tub! It was so funny, as you can see Jaci and I are busting up! Check out Jaci's blog to see Jory on the PoGo stick it's pretty funny!

Jory and his Mom!

This was me hangin out in the trailer where we slept, there were so many of us that we would not all fit in the house! We even ate Thanksgiving dinner outside under the tents cause we would not fit inside!

Catchin' Up!

So we are having problems with our Internet for the last few months. It works but has been to slow to up-load pics. We run our Internet through T-Mobile because we do not have a land line. Well anyways Jory called and they said they are switching their provider which has caused a lot of problems. However they said it should be resolved soon! Hopefully so I can keep up with all of our pictures! For now I will up-date a few pics at a time.

The deer hunt! Ha I know this is a bit late but like I said I have tons to catch up on. Jory and I both had Central tags this year so we were pretty excited. Last year I did not draw out, which made me pretty bummed. I still went out and helped J though. This year we decided to go up Santaquin Canyon opening morning. We started hiking in the dark with our mag lights. Lets just say that Jory took me straight up a cliff and then I had to come back down it later. It sucked so bad! It would have been well worth it if we were the only ones in that area but unfortunately we were NOT! We ended up in a really good canyon to spot but there were 3 other guys coming from different directions into the canyon. So we headed back down the cliff. Of course me being as graceful as I am I fell big time and about broke Jory's gun that I was packing. I had so pretty sweet bruises though. Later that night we went back up Santaquin Canyon but to a different spot where we saw zero deer. The next few days we went out west on the desert. We saw a ton of does but no bucks. I was so frustrated, we would hike our butts of and see nothing! Anyways Jory went out with all the guys one day while I was working and they saw a couple of nice bucks, Neil and Bob both filled their tags. Jory and I kept at it until the last day.......we just had no luck! That's okay cause we still had so much fun! We love to be outdoors and it is always fun to spend time with someone you love doing something you love. Hopefully next year will bring us more luck!

So on Friday night all the girls went to twilight together! It was so much fun! We had pre-ordered our tickets on so that we didn't have to worry about tickets selling out. Our movie was the 10:00 movie and we arrived to sit in line at 6:30. Yes we felt like the biggest DORKS but it was fun and well worth it. During our 3 1/2 hour wait we played games and cards together.......and ate delicious hot dog on a stick! It was a blast even if we did look completely ridiculous. The movie was so GOOD, I have to see it again. Jace and I sat next to each other and we kept preparing each other for the end, we were so sad. We decided that the movie should have been 3 or 4 hours long. After it ended we went to Dennys and had some dinner. All in all it was a excellent night, I can't wait to see it again!

Jaci, Alisha, Me, Melanie, Nicole, Ashley, and Libby

The LONG line! When they started letting us in Jaci and I were running like lunatics trying to get in and get a good seat. It was pretty hysterical, I felt like I was 10.

So the girls had a night out and went to Thriller at Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake. We go every year together thanks to Shantel. We had a small issue with getting there which made us laugh the entire way. Thanks Onstar! Once we got there we had really fun night I look forward to it every year! Thanks Shantel!

This is the best dance I think!

Molly, Andy, Me, Skeletor, Jaci and Shantel!

HoRsE RiDe

So I suck at posting these days! Here are some pictures from last month when Jory, Wayne, Andy and I went up Santaquin Canyon for a horse ride. It was really fun to hang out and see some beautiful country. Jory even rode a mule for Wayner.
