Today, my sweet little puppy, Trapper passed away. It has been such a hard day! He was the best dog in the world! He was so gentle and loving. He was such a good dog and got along so well with the cats. Tiger and him were always sleeping together. She will definately be a lost soul without him. He was so friendly and nice, but if you were not supposed to be in his yard he was ferocious! A couple years ago my mom was home alone with Corban and she heard Trapper barking a mean bark and then she heard an animal screaming...anyways, Trapper cornered something under the deck and when we got home he was there to greet us just wagging his tail. Garrett checked out to see what was under the deck and it was the biggest raccoon ever! Trapper had snapped it's neck and killed it. There was no way he was going to let anything hurt his little Corban. He used to go everywhere with us and especially loved Lake Powell. We would jump off rocks into the lake and he would come after us thinking we were drowning. I have so many special memories with him and will miss him, but I am very thankful I had 15 years to spend with him!!!

Garrett's New Project

The boys, my mom and me went to Utah for a couple of weeks. While we were gone, Garrett decided to start a new project...ALL BY HIMSELF!! We have needed a carport to cover our boat, so Garrett decided to build one while we were in Utah. I was gone for a little over 2 weeks and my AMAZING husband did this alone. I don't know how he did it, but it is awesome! Well, I guess I can't give him all the credit I heard that the cats were there trying to help, but kept getting under his feet and trying to trip him. He sure is picky with his help. :)

Before picture.

I have to laugh because these are his plans for the carport on a Sears Portrait coupon! :)

It is huge!!! We can park the boat and truck under it!
