Thanksgiving Weekend & Top Shot

So WAY back when (OK, just over Thanksgiving weekend, just seems like forever ago) we went to Utah to stay with Ned's sister Amy. Every other year we switch with our families, so this year was Broberg year, BUT we lucked out that my parents actually went to visit my mom's dad in Mesquite, NV. so they spent a few days with us and we had such a blast this year. Besides our usual: Cafe Rio, Swigs, shopping, and other family fun, we also did:

Ned & his dad hiked Angels Landing (& got a great picture, which I don't have, of a Condor) while the rest of us did various little hikes.

Ned got a new gun for Christmas (yes early) a handgun and we both were never huge hand gun lovers, but let me tell you, if you have never shot a hand gun, then you cannot judge. It was one of the funnest things I have ever done. I think I want a pink hand gun now...ha ha ha

We set up shaving can's and target's all over the dessert riverbed and cliffs (which is only about 10 minutes from my sister in-laws house and had a blast).  I have to say my mom and I (the only girls there) didn't do too bad ourselves!

After shooting we happened to find a little bat that was behind one of the cliff's and then Ned caught a tarantula.  Yeah I HATE spiders, so he put it all over him: shirt, hands, head...I'm sure just to please me.

  1. What a great trip that was...the shooting was the BEST!

  2. Billy got a hand gun not to long ago. Said it was for protection from the wild animals when he was out camping. Now I know the truth:)

  3. ewwwwww... I cannot believe he actually touched that.

  4. I love the shoes on the wrong feet! get used to stuff like that:}
