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!
