Last weekend Chase and I went to Denver to visit my parents! Lucky for us it was Kenny's birthday on Friday, so we celebrated with him and ate a great dinner with his favorite cake. Jess and Nick came over to celebrate as well, and it was fun to hang out with them.
We had such a good time with Hailey and my parents and to be home for a little bit. We spent most of our time a the pool playing "College Tri" and "Ocho Cinco," games that my dad loves! Kenny was the MVP of Ocho Cinco, because he was laying out to catch the tennis balls then diving into the pool with grace. We went to my mom's showroom, Phoebe Marsh, and I would love to have my house decorated with everything in there! She has done such a good job pulling it all together! We played a few games of Roulette, no one won but it was an awesome table from the late 1800's.
We were sad to leave Denver and wished we could have spent more time there with my parents. But hopefully they can come out and visit us in Portland soon! We are moving over labor day weekend. Our summer may be ending soon, but we still have the Big D planned for this weekend and can't wait!! (That is Disneyland of course!)

The Bow Hunt started on Saturday, so as you can imagine the boys were more than ready to hit the hills. We spent Friday night in Enterprise with Chase's friends and their wives. We had a great Dutch Oven meal, and of course had to have another obstacle course for the bedroom. Sadly Team Gentry lost by one second, so we had to sleep on the pull out couch.(We need help!)Turns out that no one slept well anyway. The boys were too excited to sleep, and when they got up they were not very courteous to the wives who were still sleeping. Unfortunately they didn't bring home the "bacon," but they still had a great time together.
I was sad that I couldn't be out there with them on opening morning, but I got all dressed up last night and went out with Chase. It was my first time on the bow hunt and man it gets really uncomfortable! I had a really fun time with Chase though, and hopefully he will get a deer before the hunt is over!

Thanks to Auzzy and Dayna my first trip to Lake Powell was first class! We first stopped and fished for a little while and when we were rigging up a boil of striper fish came right passed us! We tried to hurry as fast as we could, but by the time we had the bait on they had all swam away. Just our luck. When we got to the house boat it was dark, but since this trip was first class we had people take us down the dock and straight to the houseboat on a golf cart! We were all pretty hungry so went to the restaurant and had dinner and rocked out to a surprisingly good cover band.
After a very "comfortable" night under the stars, we headed out to see the lake and to do some wakeboarding. I would also like to compliment our captain (Ron) for his excellent driving skills! While out on the lake Willy, Chase, and I jumped off a rock which we guessed it to be around 35 feet, a personal high for me!
We took a lunch break and headed back to the houseboat, and I still can not get over how huge the houseboats are at Antelope point. There are some that are easily close to a million bucks! Anyway, after lunch we decided to make an obstacle course. All I have to say is Team Gentry needed some improvement! But congrats to Team Van Dizzle. Even though it was a very short trip we had so much fun! I can't believe we are counting down the weeks until we move, but we still plan to have a lot of fun til the summer is over!
