October really got away from me! The end of the month kept us very busy with getting ready for Halloween, cleaning up the garden, a hunting trip and Henry’s birthday. Here’s a little recap of the hunting trip with lots of pictures.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances at Rick’s job, he was unable to take his full vacation for hunting this year. So he decided to turn in his big game licenses, and we went grouse hunting together for a three-day weekend. My mom and Manuel joined us up at the cabin and we had a really nice time, even though we didn’t get any meat.
We got up there Friday night and Rick build a fire in the stove. We then spent the rest of the weekend keeping Emmett from touching it!
We got to get outside a lot and had a nice time hiking while we looked for dusky grouse. Josie, of course loved it and Henry was very excited as well.
While we were out we ran into another hunter who was amazed to discover Emmett sleeping on Rick’s back as we hiked. Emmett wasn’t too happy when Rick took off his coat before getting back in the car.
My mom and I made sugar skulls (Henry helped too) for Day of the Dead while we were up there.
We had a camp fire outside on Saturday night and toasted marshmallows and made s’mores. Mano told Henry fish stories by the fire.
All in all it was a great weekend. More pics to come this week of Halloween and Henry’s birthday!
