So... this sweet girl was found wandering in the desert. She wandered onto someone's property skin and bones and a dead look in her eyes. They called the BLM and long story short after the long process of trying to find her owners she was sold to them and then to someone else and now to Caleb. She has great ground manners and other than still being too skinny, but much better, she seems healthy. Caleb saddled her, rode her and when we bought her, caught her and loaded her into the trailer without any problems. She fit right into our herd and now she and Tiger are always together except that she eats alone. So welcome to the family Isabel.

R has decided to try his hand at fly fishing so this trip was his virgin effort. He only lost 2 flies and caught 0 fish but in his defense we had to leave to come home for church right when the fish were starting to bite.This was also AJ's first ever fishing expedition and as you can see, he was ready! So excited to go!
On Saturday Grandpa Dan and Mary came up for the day and to go fishing with us, thank goodness because even though we just wanted them to come and spend some time with us, Grandpa Dan was awesome with helping the boys, all of them, with their fishing poles.
Caleb has decided to try fly fishing also. He and Jake and R took a class at Cabelas the week before we went to start learning the basics.
Jake and Caleb wisely decided to each get a different pole and share so that they could do both traditional and fly fishing. Such smart boys!
There is even a playground close by so they could pick their fave place to play or just go to warm up for a few minutes.
AJ and Levi loved the "rainbow tunnel" and I have to admit, it was my fave way to cool off during the day also.
