how to Pinterest the crap out of a duck blind: free pallets, free chicken wire and a little elbow-grease.

a little hike in the woods with the fan-jam before hockey season fires up. soon our schedules will be dictated by hockey games in a scattering of small towns across southern Alberta. I wish we would have had a little more time though. (we had to get back for my second son’s hockey conditioning…)

Burned the midnight oil and finished up another blade early this morning. This is for a friend at work and he’s off on a trophy sheep hunt tomorrow, so I really wanted to get it to him so he could try it out on his hunt. Hopefully one of the first jobs it does is dressing a nice mountain sheep.

My birthday boy, his new .22, and his first muskrat with his new .22. One happy birthday boy.

We pulled out our garden today. Never have we had such a good year. It’s amazing that God allows us to watch 400 + pounds of food grow in the most incredible way. These were all seeds a few short months ago. I think that’s pretty radical. And this isn’t even all of it.

Early morning fish. I’m pretty sure you won’t find a kid more dedicated to fishing than my oldest son. Unless he has to, he will not stop.
