FUN IN THE RAIN

Image
YESTERDAY WAS A GREAT DAY! WE HAD SO MUCH FUN. ON OUR WAY BACK FROM SODA SPRINGS, WE HAD TO STOP IN POCATELLO AND DROP OFF THOSE SILLY LIFE JACKETS AND OARS @ THE ISU OUTDOOR CENTER. IT STARTED TO HAIL AND RAIN LIKE CRAZY AS WE GOT INTO POKY. THERE WAS ABOUT 6 INCHES OF STANDING RAIN AND THE PUDDLES WERE HUGE.


SO WE GOT CLOSER TO IDAHO FALLS, IT STARTED TO CLEAR UP. WHEN WE GOT TO IDAHO FALLS, WE DECIDED WE WOULD GO HIT SOME BALLS AT THE DRIVING RANGE. BY THE TIME WE GOT THERE, THE CLOUDS HAD MOVED IN AND IT STARTED TO RAIN & HAIL AGAIN. WE WERE STUCK AT THE GOLF COURSE UNTIL IT CLEARED UP A LITTLE.

AFTER ALL THAT RAIN, THE FRONT OF OUR APARTMENT COMPLEX LAWN WAS FLOODED. WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH CHENA TO GET HER IN THE WATER. SHE IS GETTING MUCH BETTER. SHE LOVED IT. WE HAD A FUN 45 MINUTES PLAYING IN THE PUDDLE.

Fishing

We have been doing some fishing lately and have taken some good pictures. I am also a proud owner of the Ugly Stick fishing pole. It works really great. I haven't caught anything with it yet, but I will. We went fishing at Palisades Dam on Saturday and had a great time. Chena loved playing in the water. She ran circles with her mouth open. It was cute, so we took a little video.

On our way home, we came around a corner and saw some deer on the road. We pulled over and saw a baby deer about 20 ft off the road. We got out and took some pictures. The deer was probably born the day before. It was still in a ball and wasn't walking.

Brad had today off and I had to work so he took Chena and went fishing. They went to lots of different places but didn't have any luck. He took some good pictures so here are a few.
