a little bit of this and a little bit of that


I am finding it so hard to believe that it’s July already. Here’s just a peek at what’s been happening…

The girls are getting BIG, and Lucy still is not sure she likes her new friends, but they “hang” out a little bit everyday

It’s the 4th of July weekend, and we are headed to the rodeo – yeehaw!

Yesterday we enjoyed the annual cattle drive right in front of the house; that’s always a fun one for the kids,


Charlie and the horse

and tomorrow is our 16th wedding anniversary; how is it that it seems like just yesterday and yet an entire lifetime ago all at the same time

I’m not sure what possessed me to try and make this cake from Glorious Treats last weekend, but I did, and it came out pretty good.

It’s super HOT here this week, and I need one of these to cool off {does it matter that it’s still the afternoon?} This girls loves a good sparkler.

Things will probably be pretty quiet here this weekend while I enjoy the long weekend with my family, but seeing as how I am addicted to instagram, I’m sure you’ll get a glimpse at what I’m up to.

Have a wonderful and SAFE 4th of July weekend!
