Trey's new toy

First off, I'd like to make it known that I'm not diggin' the uploading of videos process. The last 2 times I've tried, it's not worked. :(

So now for our big news. Nothing too exciting, so don't get your panties in a twist. NO babies - yet. But Trey traded up trucks. Ya know how boys are about their toys. :D

He's been wanting a deisel for a LONG time. He was debating on whether it be a Dodge or Ford F250. He finally found the perfect one in an F250 4x4. It's used, a 2008, but only had 25k miles on it, had all the options he wanted and the price was right.

So here's the beast!!:

gettin' the lease ready...

Last weekend Trey and I went to the lease in La Pryor to get another stand up so the deer can get ready for it. We took dad with us and thought we might get another hog on the ground while we were there. I didn't feel like hunting, but dad and Trey took every opportunity they could.

We got there super late on Friday night, Trey spotted a cougar stalking the bunkhouses as he was unloading the truck (luckily I was already in bed). Saturday morning Dad and Trey got up and hunted (saw lots of deer, but no pigs). They came back and got me, went and got breakfast tacos, came back and we put up the stand. Then we went and took a dip in the Nueces River. Gosh that felt so good after being out in the blistering hot sun. :)

These prickly pears don't taste so good....blech..

This stand is Trey's most recent creation. It's a 6x6 gun/bow blind. It's stationed about 20 yards from the feeder with the intention of being a bow blind. He welded it all together but has a turf floor lining. We spray painted the camo on the outside ourselves. Can you tell?

This is the 360' rifle stand Trey's dad built out of scaffolding. It's pretty cool.

This was a stand that Trey built. He built the base out of steel and tied down a pop-up ground blind to it.

The Nueces River was nice and refreshing... :)

Our huntin' buggy... Dad and I used it as a stand for the evening hunt on Saturday. We sat in the top seats and still didn't see any pigs. Didn't see any deer either. We did see a family of pheasants. They were cute :)

Sunday morning Dad and Trey had another unsuccessful hunt and then we went home.

it's been a while...

I really don't have anything to post about. Trey's been busy working/playing. I've been busy working.

I came home from work one day as Trey was coming in the house from welding. He was DIRTY...I had to take a picture because it reminded me of Steve Martin in "The Jerk" and he would always say "I was boooorn a pooor black child..."

Sadly, this picture really doesn't even do the dirtiness any justice. LOL.

I've been bugging him to let me load the pictures he's taken of his jobs onto my computer so I could put them on the blog to show off, but there are SOOOOO many pictures on his camera that I just don't want on my computer (like pics from his trail cams for example) so it's going to be a while before I get those loaded on here. I'll have to wait until I have the patience to sit and select the individual pictures I want to load. :)
