I just think it is refreshing to see two people still in love with each other after so many years! Thanks mom and dad for being wonderful parents. I am so thankful that thirty years ago you fell in love and took a leap of faith. My entire existance revolves around the love you have for one another! Much lover :) Happy Anniversary!

My SaNiTy!

My husband is my rock. I love him so much. I have been so stressed lately with school. I have two tests this week, clinicals, I work this weekend have three papers due on Monday and then I have a test on Monday and a test on Tuesday that determines my placement in the RN program. And just when I am about to freak out, Ryan saves me. He makes me laugh and comforts me and lets me know that even if I crash and burn at school he loves me no matter what! I am the luckiest girl in the world and everyone should have someone like Ryan.

MuLe! Really :)

My husband has recently become the proud owner of a small black mule. Yes I said mule. He has rode horses his entire life and suddenly has become interested in roping off a mule. So he bought one. I don't know a lot about the differences between a horse and a mule when it comes to breaking them, I'm not sure that Ryan does either but he is giving it a shot. Ryan is also known for training his horses to go anywhere and do anything he asks them to, he is attempting this with mule as well. Well he was riding the other day at his parents, we are too poor to have our horses at our house, he was making the mule walk up the back steps when it started raining. Well he had the brilliant idea to get in the horse trailer and wait out the storm, that's when he did something stupid. HE GOT ON THE MULE INSIDE THE HORSE TRAILER! Well he was riding it around inside and made the mule walk out. Well he, the mule, did well so Ry thought he would try it again. The mule got in the trailer and spun around and jumped out the of the trailer and started bucking. Well for those of you that don't know mules they have a smaller shoulders so you have to use a britching so the saddle doesn't go over there shoulders. THE BRITCHING DIDN'T WORK. The saddle slid far enough forward that it inhibited Ryan from pulling the head around,so the mule started spinning. Needless to say Ryan came off the mule:) Ry has two huge bruises on his thighs from the swells on the saddle! I wish I could have seen it. Ry's mom freaked out and his friend Matt got a pretty good kick out of it! I'm never there when the action happens. Better luck next time :)

Well since I suck at blogging I figured I would do one big post about the summer. A lot has happened, I turned 23! Ry and I celebrated our first anniversary! We rodeoed quite a bit! Went boating a few times, worked a lot, had a stud in stallion alley at the fair, went swimming at my parents almost every sun day! Celebrated a lot of family birthdays. Drove the horses in the parade and around town very often, bought some new horses, bought a new wagon, went to the drive in (fell asleep), went to the swap meet, ate a lot, cooked a lot, laughed a lot! Drove to Rexburg a lot, picked up my brother in law who broke both arms(silly boy). Karah broke her arm doing a little evil- canevil herself trying to be like daddy and uncle Nick. Roped a lot but not enough, watched Shylee grow up before my eyes, Annie makes me want to be a kid again, and Hallie has more attitude than I know what to do with, I think she gets that from her mom's side of the family :) SkyLee and Rowdy tagged along with us several times, love them kids :)I got a new nephew, Wyatt Legend Butler, and Holly and Lance got a new brother. One more niece on the way and Lacy is prego and doesn't know what it is yet.I am just waiting for Mandy and Nick to tell us they are pregnant too:) I just love the summer, I love the hot days and warm nights, I love sun tans and ice cream, I love summer rain and crazy Utah weather. I love the smell of hot leather and the creek of the saddles, I fall in love with Ryan all over again every summer. He is such a hard worker and has such a love for the cowboy way of life. I love running in the morning when it is still cool but the sun is shining! I love life. I'm sad that summer is over but I am excited for fall and all the comes with it! Look at my pictures and leave me a comment so I know you are out there!

4th of July

We took the team to the parade in Slaterville and had a blast. Everyone loved the team and the wagon. I'm so proud of my husbands handy work. He and his brother Jer built the wagon from the frame up. Little Rowdy had to sit on Ryan's lap the whole time or he would scream and cry. It was hilarious. Ryan was trying to get the horses to hold still, but they kept wanting to go and go and we could couldn't figure out why they were wanting to go so much. Finally some one figured out that Rowdy was kissing to the horses, and with these to horses one kiss and they are gone. It was so funny. Rowdy had to have his hands on the reigns the whole time. Gotta love that kid.

Rodeo :)

Well the Evanston Rodeo Series started last night and we entered up. We had a good time. We didn't do any good but we had a good time. I love everything about the rodeo, the sounds, the smells, the dust, the feeling of being a part of something bigger than your self. I love, love, love it. I especially love the way my man looks in his cowboy hat. I'll have to snag a picture next time because he is smokin' hot!!!
