The first morning they went out hunting I tagged along to keep the truck warm and drive to pick them up. It was a crazy snow storm and the visibility was horrible but, the brothers were together and excited for their hunting fun to begin. Well, they were out for about an hour and I started driving up and down the road looking for them. I was starting to get really nervous then I saw Brian’s hunter orange in the distance. I got more nervous as Brian got closer. He was alone…where was Jared?
As I was watching Brian I noticed he was stumbling in the waist high snow. He was taking 2 or 3 steps then bending over and pausing to catch his breath. I started to worry that he was going to collapse. How was I going to drag him into the truck in this blizzard? Even if we wen't in the middle of a crazy blizzard how would I get him to the truck he is 2 times my size. How was I going to get him to the hospital? I had no idea where it even was! Was he going to collapse and be buried by snow and ice before I got to him? Was he going to turn into the iceman (you know the documentary they show every 6th grader)? I might have been a little dramatic in my worrying but that’s nothing new. I was full on panicing!
When he finally got close I parked Jared’s truck in the middle of the road… my husband was going to freeze to death…traffic laws don’t apply at a time like this. He was covered with snow and his beard was frozen with big pieces of ice in it and he was sweaty from hiking around in the deep snow. Once we warmed him up we went to look for Jared we found him in a similar state. The boys warmed up and were ready to do it all over again the next day.
One afternoon Brian and I were total tourists. We had fun shopping at all of the gift shops. I almost bought Brian some moose P.J's but they were sold out of his size. My treat connoisseur had to stop at the candy store and I had to take a pic of him. It was a cowboy candy store...he was in his element!
Once we looked appropriate for Thanksgiving we went out and walked around down town with Brian's dad. We had fun hanging out with Bob and joking around. We took our Christmas picture.
We loved playing in the snow and seeing Jared, Bob, and everyone else.

We flew in and went to Hotel Boyack (my God mothers house). While we were there we were able to visit with my brother, Morgan and his family, Valeri and Finn. His little boy is so cute! We meet up with them at Cabellas and herd all of Finn’s animal sounds. He thinks most things growl. We went to a BYU football game with Morgan. It was weird being back at BYU I kept looking around thinking “these kids look so young”…. I think this might mean I am getting old! While in Provo we stocked up on BYU Gear.
We were also able to visit with this long list of people:
My fabulous God mother Lori, and God Sister Lauren (and all the other Utah Boyack’s too)
- We tried to meet up with a few other people but we ran out of time… If we didn’t see you this time we WILL see you next time!
