Survival of the Hatchie

Clint and I had such a good time in Jackson. It was really great for the rest of my family who couldn't attend the wedding to finally meet him. Of course, he won them all over!! He scored major points by announcing that he was going to spend the night at the clubhouse. This is the true test!! Since we were only there one night of the reunion, it was a nice way to "ease" him in!!

My dad took us down to our property and Clint received the "royal tour" of the land. Once we arrived, we had introductions, checked out the snacks (tested most of them--all passed our approval), and headed straight for the 4 wheelers. On the ride, we met 5 wild turkey! These have to be the dumbest animals ever! They ran out in front of us and then would not get out of the way!! It was a shame we didn't have a shotgun and that it isn't turkey season, or we would have had turkey for the rest of the year!! That was followed by some socializing, couple games of ping-pong, and then (my favorite) a dinner of the best pit BBQ you'll ever eat! We had to go home before they cooked the ribs :( That night, we played some cards and then I talked Clint into going on the annual mid-night ride. This year, we were lucky to have my cousin Rob's "truck-like" vehicle. It's always fun to ride through the dessert and listen to the ghost stories.

We woke up the next morning to the sound of pouring rain beating on the tin roof of the clubhouse. That was nice, except for the fact we both had to potty!! The outhouse was a nice little walk in the pouring that'll wake you up :) We ate a huge breakfast and mainly sat around inside the clubhouse chatting. Sadly, we had to leave after lunch. But, all-in-all we had fun and I would say Clint should be ready for a 2-nighter next year!!

The rain on the tin roof was hurting her ears!! :)
