A few weeks ago Taylor said he wanted to learn how to play the piano. He is my only child I never put in lessons. So I told him to go through the beginner book by himself and then I would help him in the other books. So he played jingle bells and Braelyn sang along with him. She wanted to sing "I hope they call me on a mission" since Taylor doesn't know how to play that one he played an indian song. She didn't mind and sang away. If you notice the leaf on her head, she had watched a show earlier that they made a hat out of a leaf and she wanted to make her one.

Braelyn and Berkely went up to the cabin on Wednesday night. Taryn had her fall break from college and needed to rest and relax. The weather was wonderful and even hot on Friday afternoon. Taylor came out Friday morning with Steve's mom and sister Monica. Kevin came up after work on Friday. With most of the projects done on the cabin we spent alot of time sitting and relaxing. Thursday night we even went down to the Hanna Cafe for dinner. I've never been there and loved my dinner. We will have to go back.
We hiked up the canyon all the way to the top of the hill and were able to enjoy the beautiful views. Taylor spent his hike pushing down all the dead trees.
Steve goofed up this year and instead of putting in for the bow hunt he put himself in for the rifle. The last couple of years he has only been able to bow hunt. So this weekend him and Taylor got up early Saturday morning to hunt. They didn't come back until 10:30 so we all thought they had got one. They both had a shot at a four-point but missed. Neither of them was too upset about missing, just grateful they saw a couple of bucks. So Monday morning they got up early again, but this time they returned home around 9:00. Steve came into the cabin and asked for the camera, because Taylor had shot a deer. Since he isn't able to hunt this Saturday he shot at a two-point and got him on the first shot. Thank goodness my family likes venison.

We don't care if it's cold we are going to sit around the fire.
Taryn telling Heather how to make her famous rapid fire mouth bursts. I can't give you the recipe, but they are wonderful.
I think the Allred clan is worn out. That is everyone but Braelyn, I don't think she ever gets tired.
Papa with baby Berkley. Even though the weather was cold it was fun hanging out with family and friends and being at the cabin.

We think granddaughers are awesome and we were so excited when Berkely joined our family on May 14, 2008. She weighed 7lbs 11 ozs. She has blue eyes and brown hair. She is a sweetheart and it's fun to have a baby to hold again. She gained weight quickly and everyone comments on her fat cheeks. They are perfect for us to kiss. She smiles and giggles and most of the time sleeps through the night.

We found a night in June that worked for all of us. Unfortunately the weather was cold, but we still headed out. We turned the fireplace on and had a great time talking, eating, watching movies and catching up on each other's lives. We slept in and stayed in our pj's until noon. We had so much fun it was hard to pack up and return home.
This year instead of spending the time at our towns celebration we took the boat out to the cabin and spent the weekend boating. Norm and Julie, Gayle and Alan and some friends were there. The water was really high so we were able to enjoy jumping off the cliffs. Taylor was our brave one and dove off it. The lake wasn't busy and we had a great time playing on the water. We even talked Dallin into trying body-surfing behind the boat. It was amazing that he was able to hang onto the rope and keep his swimming suit up.
