Allie caught her first fish ever and thought it was SO great! I was grateful because she has been begging to go fishing since we drove into CO. It took a while to get a license and time to go. I was sick the first weekend we were here so then we had to wait a week. Anyway, by the time we went I don't think she believed us that we were really going to go. I am glad she caught something because for those of you that have been fishing you know how it is to WAIT. Unless you are with people you really like, fishing can be pretty boring. (sorry to those that disagree)
Allie was fun to watch during all the action. She was a little bit nervous while the fish was flopping everywhere but cracking up every time it jumped from Brandon's hands. Once Brandon got the hook out she watched him gut the fish just fascinated by it all. Brandon was acting like the fish was talking to her so she talked to the fish the rest of the evening. While the fish waited on the stringer she just sat there saying, "hello, fish. are you swimming?" just rambling on and on about nothing. Then as we were leaving Brandon was carrying the fish and she says, "hey fish, we are going to eat you." Not one bit bothered by that. Then when we got home he cut the head off and Allie was right up there trying to see what he was doing. After the head was off she looks and it and says, "hello, mr head." We basically just laughed the whole night long at everything she had to say. She was quite proud of herself telling people that only she caught a fish and not dad. It was all really fun.
Tyler was just as in to it. He was right there by Brandon's side the whole time. Staying as close as possible. He didn't really care about the pole before until he realized what it was for then he WOULDN'T put it down. He was kicking and screaming when I had to take it so we could leave. At least Brandon will have some fishing buddies. He just needs to teach them how to fly fish. I would even do that it looks like much more fun.

Allie walking in the doors to the Aquarium. I love that face! The aquarium was so neat, I have never been to one before. You almost feel like you are swimming with the fish.
Tyler trying to climb in with the zebras.
Allie chose this shirt to wear because it has orange stripes like a tiger. So we had to take a picture with the tiger, only it was in the farthest corner of the cage and so you can barely see it.
Allie playing in the mud puddle they created from dumping the dogs water.
Kenton and Darion using the hand cart to carry away branches that grandpa cut from the tree.
Allie was SOOO excited for "bbq" that she sat and waited for it to be all done while helping grandpa with the spices. When we sat down to eat dinner she wanted a hot dog and "bbq". haha I don't think she even knew what bbq was.
Tyler enjoying the mud puddle with his motorcycle.
Allie and Talon washing off! That took a while!
Yawning while shoveling, yet still not willing to go inside and lay down.
