Well Trevor and I just got back from our annual weekend in Loa for Memorial Day. I'm just thrilled to have tons of new pictures to scrapbook! Trevor's family goes to Loa every Memorial Day, mainly to honor Craig, Trevor's older brother who died 30 minutes after he was born. But also to honor many of the other relativs buried there. Trevor's Dad was born and raised in Loa, which is just outside of Capital Reef National Park. It's a nice little town, and we love going there. His family owns a house there--this ancient house that belonged to his great grandmother. So it's nice to have somewhere to stay when we are there. It was such a fun, relaxing weekend, though most of the time was spent just hanging out and talking--the weather wasn't good enough for us to venture far, and going to Captial Reef was out of the question. But boy did we fish! This picture shows when I caught my first fish. Trevor made me TOUCH it. Eww! And then just after this picture was taken he said, "Meg! The fish just pooped on you!" and I FREAKED OUT and threw in the ground and screamed. I thought he was kidding--but apparently the fish did in actuality poop on me. But it didn't deter me from fishing more. All told, we caught eighteen! This is a picture of the 14 we caught the second time out, after they broke the bag Stan had and dropped on the pavement. Only two of them were mine...but I've decided I LOVE fishing! On the way home we stopped at Cabella's and bought our own fishing rods, a tackle box, and some lures. We can't wait to go back and try again! Only now, I need to learn to cook fish. And Trevor needs to learn to like it. Hmmm...don't think the second one will happen, somehow...We also went 4-wheeling--just me and Trevor on his Dad's. I don't think I've ever driven one by myself before, and it was so fun! We just drove them straight from the Loa house out to the hills beyond, which isn't very far. All over the lava rock and the hills, and there was a beautiful view of the country all around Loa. Such a beautiful place.
