Our Little Cow Boy

Bryson put on Grandpa's lawn mowing hat and said "I'm a Cowboy". Sure wish my dad could have seen and heard that.

Play Date

Bryson and I had a great visit with my friend Judy and her grandson Tristan. After a rocky start which is so common with two year olds. I think the boys got along great. Next time we will be sure that there are Two Thomas Train Cars. We enjoyed our ride around in the golf cart seeing the cows, horses, goats, dogs and tractors.

Snack time on the front porch. Bryson had such a good time that he didn't want to leave.

Such Talent

Emily made these earrings for me as part of my birthday present. She has also made bracelets, necklaces and other earrings.

Fun With Friends

We had a wonderful evening at the Clems house. David,Gerald, Bryson, Austin,(their oldest grandson) and I played in the pool for awhile. Bryson had fun jumping to Grandpa and Gramme. Then we went inside and Bryson and David and Shelba's youngest grandson,Carson played downstairs in the play room and after pizza played in the sun room and then back down to the play room. They had a fun time playing all over. I think they played perfect together!! Brings back memories of Shelba and I when we would get together and Emily and her son Travis would play with each other. Shelba and David and Gerald and I have been friends since around 1968. Our oldest girls Angela and Kelly played together too.
We have tons and tons of wonderful memories that we have made with each other.
