Grandpa Bartholomew Funeral

A couple weeks ago we went down to Fayette, UT for the funeral of Susan’s Grandpa Bartholomew. I have to say after fifteen years or so of going down there, Fayette is finally growing on me. Here are a couple photographs from the weekend.

Rubber Boa

Jon and I went fishing on Thursday along the south fork and had a great day. We caught several nice trout of three species and had  a good time catching up. On the shuttle drive at the end of the night I saw something snake-like lying on the road. I stopped to check it out and was thrilled to find a Rubber Boa, easily my favorite snake. I couldn’t help myself and I brought it home (we’re releasing it tomorrow). The kids love it (Susan sort of tolerates it). Here are some photos.

Toad from a Tadpole

A few weeks ago the boys caught a couple of tadpoles out at Egin Lakes. Susan let them keep the tadpoles, researched how to keep them alive and encouraged the boys to keep the water clean and the creatures fed. One of the tadpoles died, but surprisingly the other tadpole survived and eventually turned into a toad. We decided to let the toad go this morning. Here are a couple of photos.
