Flaming Gorge: Floating and fishing

On our last day in Flaming Gorge we floated and fished the Green River with our guide Uncle Tanner
The weather was fantastic!
Jack was able to put his newly learned fishing skills from fishing camp to work, although fishing this river was unlike any fishing we had experienced before. It's funny how everywhere you go fishing you have to learn about the habitat and habits of the fish... luckily Tanner just told us what to do and after loosing so many bites I caught one! A beautiful rainbow trout. 

Cutest fisherman ever

I remember the first time Ben taught Beth how to fish little we think then that fishing would become such a part of her life. It is wonderful how we have both learned to love fishing because our hubby's love it so much. 

My fish!! I screamed with joy the whole time I was reeling him in. I think everyone one the river could hear and I was completely oblivious until after Beth commented on how loud I was...imagine me loud?...

And I named him

Hard at work!

Loving the little rapids!


A banquet in Evanston

On the second day of our trip we drove to Evanston, WY, to meet my parents and brother who was visiting from Australia. We thought it would be fun to drive half way and hang out for a day. Evanston is a small town with little to do so we planned on taking a picnic and exploring the state park. It was planned to be a day of sunshine, nature, food and family. 

The problem is we have no control over the weather and the closer we got to Evanston the harder the rain poured. We meet in the visitors center and shared belly laughs over how the weather resembled our England holidays.

With the very short list of indoor activities to do we choose the museum (which was small but fun!) and the recreational center. I called up the rec center and asked if it would be ok for us to have our lunch there, the answer was yes! Little did they know mother dearest had brought plates, cups, silver ware, a giant ,kitchen roll and even bum wipes... 

There were several moments when we laughed and laughed and laughed. Tears were strolling down my face and it felt SO good to embrace and absorb the hilarious situation. We caused quite the commotion in this little, quiet rec center that all the other people were staring at us and some didn't even seem to blink. I guess we were quite entertaining compared to the everyday experiences one might encounter in Evanston.

Uncle "Frank"... his name is not Frank but the kids think it is.. haha, so funny!

After arriving back at Beth's trailer, having dinner and getting the boys ready for bed I escaped and did yoga with a stunning sunset as my backdrop.
