I googled my dad and this is what came up:
Terel Ray Merkley: a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
Crazy right? I mean its right on.
This last weekend he ran the Top of Utah marathon in Amazing time,3:57! He is such an inspration to me and makes we want jump back on the wagon as soon as possible.(spring cant come fast enough) I dont think I will ever be as fast as him but just doing it is good enough for me.
When he finished I noticed he was wearing the shirts I had made for our family marathon in May and when I commented on it he answered well Im the last lone wolf and have to represent, I told him since he was the one to start us all running its only fitting! Thanks Dad for starting our MW run club!

One of my families favorite pass time is to play poker. We dont really gamble with money just our own pride. We even have had a trophy made for the BMW (ballard, merkley, webb) winner that gets passed around a lot.
Last weekend after we got home from camping took showers, naps and ate we sat down for the usual game. We dont often get together without playing. But anyway last time Dave got a ROYAL FLUSH! We were all so impressed and after talking the sat's on how rare they are I thought this is for sure blog worth. Good Job Dave to bad it didnt help ya win the game:/

Its been almost 5 years since I have been up on my families land on Diamond Mnt. so this Labor Day we packed up and headed out to Vernal for a family camping trip. It was fun to get away enjoy the mnt air, relax, eat good food, and play a little. It almost made me wish I lived closer so we could do it more.
