Road Trip!

Our little trip to Forks was great! Not only did we get lost a few times, but we actually had fun *while* getting lost! :)

It was a long long drive on the way to Sequim. That's where we stayed the first night. Thursday morning we were on our way to Forks!
As soon as we got there we stopped at Sulley's. The Bella burger would have been better without the pineapple on it. But it was good.

Next we went to the Grocery Store and Forks Outfitters. Spent way too much money. They were out of Edward stuff, but I got a nice Team Jacob sweater.



Next we went to the Chamber and got our offical Twilight vistior packs. They have Twilight trivia for each book and city maps with each place marked on it.

Next stop was Bella's house.


Then we moved on to the Hospital.


Then the high school.


There is a really great scrapbook store near the school. The owner was so helpful! It was here that I noticed my cell phone was missing! So we took off retracing our steps. I had only gotten out of the car 3 times since I last used it. Didn't find it though.
So we headed on to the Cullens house. These people are great! They let people go up to their house to take pictures. It's actually a bed and breakfast. So if you're in Forks you can stay at the Cullens house! :)


Then we headed to the "meadow". It was while snapping this picture my friend got a text from *MY* cell phone saying it was found! YAY!!! We hurried back to Forks to meet up with the wonderful guys who decided to return my cell phone.


Then we headed back torward LaPush. That is where I took the most pictures. It's so beautiful there! I wish I had more time to just sit on the beach.

My first video!

So I got this software that helps you make videos on your computer. Even though I've had it for almost a year I have never tried it! I broke through my little bubble and I decided to try it.
Here's the result~

Buffalo Round Up

Every year the guys on the KAE & KNRD crews gather up all the buffalo. They get shots and tags (if they are babies.) This year just seemed different. There were less people there watching and more than a couple "newbies" doing the rounding up.

I was sitting toward the end of the walkway hiding behind the board so the buffalo wouldn't see me and get scared to enter the pin. There was one of the new guys sitting across from me. All of a sudden he jumps up and says "I'm gonna go help them!" (Talking about the guys chasing the buffalo) I continued sitting there sneaking my camera around the corner to take pictures and then we all heard it. The loud yells of a man in pain. He was screaming "He got me! He got me! I have a hole in my leg!" He managed to JUMP the fence! How he did that after being thrown in the air by a huge buffalo is beyond me.


After he was taken to the ambulance, the rest of the guys decided to give the buffalo a rest and take a lunch break so everyone could calm down.

Here are some pictures that I took...

This is my hubby. Yes I know he doesn't match but he dressed himself.
The guys are trying to chase these buffalo into the pen so the vet can check them.

Round Dance Time!

There was a round dance at the wellness center last night. Northern Cree was there and it was fun! My mom got out there for almost every song dancing away. :) I got carried away with taking pictures. I ended up with over 230. Here are a few.

Book Marks!

So I have 27 people signed up for my Twilight book club at the Library. I decided to make some book marks. Here are some that I have in my shop.

Some have pictures that I have taken myself. A couple are hand stamped. And I even did up some Twilight themed bookmarks.
