Of course, I'm not talking about football, baseball or any kind of ball. As most of you know, Mr. & Mrs. Sheedy are not exactly athletically inclined. I'm talking about a much more important season: Road-Trip season! Woohoo! We officially kicked off our Road-Trip season by having a pre-vacation celebration. Our celebrations were decidedly gender-appropriate: I spent the day with my sisters and the kids, getting to know the newest member of the family and reminding the other buddies who their favourite aunt is. Hunter spent the day with Papa Johnson and the boys at the Stihl Timbersports event at Thanksgiving Point. My papa was stoked to learn this event was coming to Utah, and promptly purchased tickets for all his sons. Jed Albrecht was the only one unable to join the festivities, and consequently he is the only who did not wake up red as a lobster this morning. You wouldn't think, considering how cloudy and 'not-warm' yesterday was, that these poor guys would have gotten so much sun. However, they did spend close to ten hours at this event, and as Hunter reminded me: it's the sun that causes sunburns, not the heat. Poor dudes! Although, from the sound of it, they thought it was worth it. J
A few weeks ago (about the time Uncle Sam decided to send us a bunch of money), I purchased a new camera. It's a digital SLR, and it's my new best friend. Well yesterday there was a brief moment of marital crisis when it came to deciding who would be the lucky soul allowed to use the camera for the day. In the end, I won. Hunter is a very smart man. J Okay I'm exaggerating a bit…I don't think Hunter was really that interested in packing a camera around all day…he didn't even take the 'ole point & shoot. So these timbersport pics are coming to you courtesy of, well, Stihl Timbersports. Go figure.
Bonus points if you can find Brady Carter, Jed, and Hunter:
If you look real hard you might see some of the gang in this one as well:
Here are some pics of my day:

The perfect end to a lovely day!
