So before I can blog about my trip I have to blog about Paul's trip - he was gone for a week before I went on my trip. He flew to Utah, spent a day snowboarding with our old friend Tharren (from the Provo days), attended a wedding the next day (an old friend from Paul's Brigham City days) and then met up with my dad, my 2 brothers, and my 2 brother-in laws. All the guys in the family on a trip together before my brother left on his mission! They headed up to Island Park, just outside of Yellowstone, where they spend several days snowmobiling. They had a great time, complete with crashes, wrecks, stuck snowmobiles, and near-death experiences but, amazingly, they all came home without injuries.
