Strawberry Days Rodeo

Yep, I went to my first rodeo! I have so say, it was pretty fun. We couldn't have asked for better company or better weather. Nate and I had a blast. Strawberry Days is our town's annual summer celebration. And yes, they do serve strawberries, my favorite food! I opt for the strawberries to be plain, but everyone says the cream is delicious too. We attended the rodeo on the first, and I think least crowded night. It was great. There was mutton bustin', bronco riding, bull riding, cash cows, and more. Nate and I enjoyed our first rodeo and I think we'll be making it an annual tradition.

Camping at Payson Lakes

That's right, we went camping again! Nate and I were joking on the way home, had you told me a year ago that I would be camping and fishing on my anniversary, I would have thought you were crazy! We had the best time though. It was so fun to be outdoors in the sun and the fresh air, and the lake was beautiful. Honestly, with a day that nice we could go camping for every anniversary. This camping trip we went up to Payson Lakes. We camped with our awesome friends, Ricky and Suzie. Of course we had an amazing time with them. We fished, we cooked, we laughed, we stayed up way too late (Suzie had a second wind!), and we can't wait to do it again! On Friday evening we fished for a little while. Suzie was the only one who caught a fish. She hooked it in the eye. After removing the hook the fish struggled for a little bit and swam in circles, including swimming into the wall. Not gonna lie, it was a little funny. Then we made a lot of jokes. Oh man, you have to go camping with people who have a great sense of humor. Saturday was our 5 year anniversary and we spent most of the day fishing. The lake was within walking distance from our camp. There were some great little tiers built into the side of the lake which made fishing so much more enjoyable. We could set up our chairs right down by the water, I often sat on the lowest level and dipped my feet in the cold water. On one of the upper tiers we set up the dutch oven and had breakfast right there on the water. It was so nice! Nate perfected his hook removing skills. He may or may not have cause an unintentional fish death. We had great results. Between the four of us, we caught 29 fish on Saturday! Like I said, we had the best time! Thanks again Taggarts for an awesome weekend!
