ONE BIG JOSE!!! (deer)

Here goes the first and only blog entry I will ever write unless I ever draw another big time tag, but this one is worthy of a blog post to me. The Book Cliffs is a limited entry draw area in Utah. It gave out 312 permits for around 4,000 applicants. Its too complicated to explain how it works but every year you apply you get a point if you don't get chosen. I got EXTREMELY lucky and drew a permit with only 1 point. (there are people with 8 points who are still waiting to draw a permit) In other words I am the guy everyone hates because I shouldn't have drawn and I did :)
I have been anticipating this hunt ever since April when I found out I got the permit. I saved my money just in case I could find a buck worthy of mounting. I haven't really been that into hunting before but this hunt really got me going. After 6 months of anticipation it was all over in ONE HOUR!! Opening morning we drove our 4 wheelers about 300 yards out of camp and stumbled across this bruiser. One quick shot and some dancing around with my brother Monte and my best friend Landon and it was over!!! The deer of a lifetime!! It scores 186 1/2 points which in normal world terms equals ONE BIG JOSE!!!!
The funniest part of the whole trip is my Dad decided to sleep in, and missed the whole thing! We had to go back to camp to get him to come see it :) We were worried we didnt have enough food to last the hunt and we came home the same day it started with a monster.
Needless to say I am addicted to hunting. If you haven't tried it you need to cause I am a believer:)

32 weeks

Yes people, I am HUGE! I past my pre delivery weight with McRae a few weeks ago. Last doctors apointment, my tummy had grown 5 centimeters in 3 short weeks. The doctor scheduled an ultra sound for next appointment (29th) to see what's going on in there! The doctor said I am either full of a lot of fluid OR he is going to be one big boy! On a lighter note, only 8 more weeks :)

Evening Things Out

The pressure is OFF! We finally got an ultrasound and things are all tied up! We are looking foward to our family of two girls and two boys! Jace couldn't be more proud that he can "make a boy"! The look on his face was PRICELESS when the ultrasound tech said PENIS! :) I had been wanting a boy all along but I'm starting to have my doubts... I'm not the "play outside, get dirty" kinda girl. Looks like I'm gonna have my work cut out for me.

Mr. and Mrs. Luekenga (luke-in-gay)


We were so grateful to big a part of their special day.

The sealing was so special and we wish them the BEST!

Utah Trip

We recently were able to make a trip to UTAH!
Thanks to the little sis Kelsey who got married in Boise, ID.
We flew into Salt Lake to see Jace's fam and see our besties :)
Then we made the drive to Boise for the wedding!
It was so GREAT to be back in west, away from the HUMIDITY!!

After the trip was over, surprisingly, Jace was the one who said he wouldn't miss too much about UTAH. Me, on the otherhand.... extremely sad. I love so many things about that place! My sweet friends, CAFE RIO, the fresh air, the mountains. My goal is to get us back there for good!... one day...
