Antelope Anyone???

This past weekend Jordan got to go Antelope hunting. It was his first time and he was very excited. He came home on Saturday with a nice buck. So..... what do you do with an antelope... I guess you cut it up and eat it!!! It was so disgusting! As you can see, Jordan cut up the antelope, Cliff (Jordan's dad) cleaned it up a little bit and then I was the wrapper upper. We had some of the steaks on the Monday when we got back from Paul and they were pretty good, except I couldn't stop thinking about where it came from and how it got in our freezer. We got about 11 pounds of hamburger and a bunch of steaks and roast. We plan on making jerky with some of it as soon as we figure out how to do that. Jordan had a blast hunting with his family, I had a blast hanging out with his mom and Tessa and we ended up with a bunch of meat!! Not a bad weekend. Jordan plans on going hunting again in about two weeks.... I do not plan on cutting up an innocent animal again :) (but I will be happy to let someone else cut it up for me!)

Who said Pocatello isn't a good place to live???

We have lived in Pocatello for 3 years now and we have really enjoyed ourselves here. There are so many people that think that Pocatello is such a bad place and would never want to live here. Some say it is ugly (and it is is some spots) but there are so many beautiful places just minutes away. Today we wanted to go for a walk. So we drove only 10 min and we were in the mountains. There are so many hikes and mountain area around here. It is so fun to just be able to drive a few min and feel like we are not in a city at all. Too bad we don't have four wheelers to go play with but I guess our feet will do for know.
