Pheasant Hunting with Jeremy Merrill

Gunner did an excellent job pointing and holding on birds for Jeremy and I.  Unless we were level with Gunner, he would hold his point, making hunting and capturing video very easy.  Watching Gunner work was as fun as shooting the pheasants.

We had 7 pheasants planted and "harvested" 6 of them.  One lucky rooster weaved through lead shot as I was recording.  That video didn't make the blog cut.

Fishing in Helena

Jesse, Tricia, Sophie, and Shelby came to visit us this weekend and we had a blast!  Reid's plane was delayed and he missed his flight, but they were still able to get a little ice fishing in before the weekend was over.  Shelby was very helpful with Jessie and made sure she was always rocking in her swing and that she had a pacifier.  Sophie made the best homemade ice cream we have ever had! 
And Tricia and I scored some great treasures at the thrift stores in town! 

Highlights of Mom and Dad in AZ

Joss and Jackson at the candy factory - they got to make candy bacon and eggs!

Olive at the candy factory - she got to make a mess!
At the zoo!

Getting in some zzzz's

The trip would not be complete without some guns.

This was one of the first holes we played, when the kids were still playing!

Mom and her 216 bowling score!  Does she look proud?
