A little catch up.

Bradley getting pretty good at walking

We haven't been good at blogging lately so here is a post to catch us up!

Bradley loves to walk up and down the sidewalk. I liked this picture of him.

Indian Trail

We went on a hike of Indian Trail on May 5th. We didn't go all the way up because I (Brian) was dead but we made it pretty far.

Appleseed Project

I got to go to an Appleseed shoot in Cedar City a couple of weekends ago. It was so much fun! I went with my Dad and a friend from my ward. It is put on by the Revolutionary War Veteran's Association. This is taken from their website,

"What the RWVA (Revolutionary War Veterans Association) is all about:
The Appleseed Program is designed to take you from being a simple rifle owner to being a true rifleman. All throughout American history, the rifleman has been defined as a marksman capable of hitting a man-sized target from 500 yards away — no ifs, ands or buts about it. This 500-yard range is traditionally known as "the rifleman's quarter-mile;" a rifleman can hit just about any target he can see. This skill was particulary evident in the birth of our country, and was the difference in winning the Revolutionary War."

It was fun because Fred, the guy who started the Appleseed project showed up to our shoot and spent a lot of time giving us a history lesson about the revolutionary war. He has me interested in the history now so I am reading a few books on that period of history.

This was the firing line and our home for two days.

Here is my Dad taking a break.

On the right is "Fred" and on the left is Seth from my ward.

Bradley's Chair

Bradley loves to find books, steps, CD's, whatever he can find to sit on as long as it is the right height. We decided it would be fun to find a chair his size. We had some wooden chair in mind but at the store he came across this blue soft chair and we couldn't get him to sit on anything else in the store. So... Bradley now has his own chair, isn't he spoiled?

Lewis Peak Hike

Today we decided to try a new hike. It starts at the top of the North Ogden Divide. We only went about 2 miles but it took us an hour because it is very steep. We climbed about 1500 feet in that hour.
