Well...this Sunday is the State Round Robin. I am going to compete on the 3rd Place winning team and the Ladies team from the Heber Valley Trap and Skeet Club. So how the Round Robin works is you go for 3 weeks and shoot 25 rounds from 3 different trap houses. And they track your score for the first 2 weeks and then place you on a team. Well I did fairly well the first 2 weeks shooting an average of 49 out of 75 ( that's okay for me...not my best!). But then the last week I don't know what happened!!! I shot so crappy I can't even remember my score! But at least I still made the Ladies team and my team took 3rd. Cameron got me into Trap Shooting 2 years ago. I started shooting a .20 gauge and could only hit like 2 out of 25! But then Cameron took me to Sportsman's Warehouse and bought me a Browning Gold, women's model. And now I do pretty good! Cameron has been shooting for about 10 years and he is awesome! There isn't one person at the Heber Gun Club who can beat him! The first year we were married...he shot 225 out of 225 for the three weeks and when he went to state, he had to shoot off for High Overall. He competed with like 70 year old guys who have shot all their lives and beat all 3 of them. So I guess that he is one of the best in the state! In fact...when he was 15 he traveled to Ohio to the Grand National Trap shoot, and was 3rd in the whole Nation for his age group! ( I like to brag about him). He has shot the Round Robin for nine years and won High Overall every year! And yet somehow his team never makes it to state, so that's kind of a bummer for him. But I am so glad we do this, it's something fun for the 2 of us to do together.

So...not much has been going on with our family lately. We have just been hangin out. Quinn is getting so big! I absolutely can't believe it. She is 4 months old and smiles, coos, and giggles at us. She weighed 13 lbs. at her 4 month check up. I can't believe how fast it goes.
And last week we cut Lexi's hair for the very first time. We cut about 6 inches off and it is so cute! I am so glad we got rid of the stringy baby hair. Except we lost the curls. But it is cute. She is doing good. And loves going to dance, she is so excited for her upcoming recital and it's not even til the end of May. I can't believe she is going to preschool in the fall. She still needs to be little.
A couple weeks ago Melissa, Sarah and I took the kids to my dad's farm so they could see the baby lambs and goats. It was so fun, they got to hold the little lamb in the picture. When we went over to the goats, we saw the 2 legged goat! It was born on a really cold night and it's back legs froze off! It was so sad, and the kids didn't quite know what to think about it. They also got to pet the mule. It was a lot of fun.
So other than that stuff, we are pretty boring. My sister's wedding is coming up and so I have been busy helping her, and I am so excited for her.
