Watch out for the Fly Rod and 5 gallon buckets!

So, I went up to Steamboat today for work and on my way back I met up with my buddy in Dillon. We were off to do some fly fishing. We got all set up and I shut my front door of the Suburban and there went the fly rod! I shortend it up by about 12". NOT a good thing. I tried to fish and the only thing I caught was my left ear, due to a VERY poor cast. I dont know what hurt more my broken nose or the fly stuck in my ear.

Oh....I forgot to tell the story of the broken nose......I think this is the 5 time it has been smashed. a bike crash or 2, basketball, some dumb drunk woman and now a 9 year old Cub Scout.

Notice that I have a 1" water line, I was filling the scouts 5 gallon buckets of water for them and that water ended up on me. Just out side the picture is the fire truck blasting water over 200 feet in the air. It was quite the water fight. I got a 5 gallon bucket of water in the face with the rim of the bucket on the bridge of the nose. So I have spent the last 2 days with black and blue eyes and it kills to wear shades! That is why we have Advil!

Tyler is TALL

Well, it has happened, Tyler is taller than Brooke!

Tyler and Cameron

I just got back from Canada from a 5 day trip to Vancover Island, Naniamo to be exact. Installed a system there, what a beautiful place. I would love to spend some time there without the preasure of brining a system online.

I wanted to post some pics of Tlyer buying his bike and Cam sitting in Air Life. I will post a pic I took from the north side of Naniamo.

4th of July

We had a good 4th - there was a ward breakfast at the park, a parade & then we spent the evening with some friends & watched fireworks from their backyard. 2 casualties - Conner crashed on his bike & Pierce tried to pick up a glowing ember from a sparkler!
