This was the last that I saw before I went down to Utah. While I was gone, the walls were poured, Brett painted most of that tar stuff on it and has been working on backfilling the dirt and getting it level for our concrete floors to be poured on Thursday. But today, our plumber came and has been working on the plumbing.
So this is where we are now. Whew, that was a lot to cover! I'll post more as more is done!!
Yay for Brynnlee!!! I was so excited that I was able to catch her first public rollover on camera. My little girl just keeps on growing!
Then the last day that we were there, I took Austin and Aubree to meet up with Troy (Diana's husband) and her two kids and we went to a way cool fun center in Salt Lake. There they had those huge blow up bouncy things the kids could run, jump, slide, and climb on. There was also a "jungle" that the kids could climb in, an arcade where Austin won 53 tickets (which he turned in to get two little beach balls - one for him and one for Aubree), there was a roller skating rink, and waterslides outside. We did everything but the waterslides and roller skating. That was my kids' favorite activity.

Now, I reserve the right to choose whatever I want (as long as it's within the right price range and would look good with my cabinets and paint colors) regardless of how the vote turns out. But I'm curious to see what others like. So, please let me know which is your (and anyone else you know or is in the house) favorite!

Let me remind you, Ausin is five years old. Crazy, huh?! Brett says he started driving a tractor on the farm when he was five, so he figured it's time for Austin to start helping out. Might as well! He did great; he didn't even hit one bale (like I've done once or twice) and he absolutely LOVED it! So, Austin, welcome to the world of work!! Enjoy the pics...
Here's Austin driving old Calico!
What hard workers we have!

I often think when I'm driving our old blue truck with a hay elevator hooked onto it, swinging around scooping up bales, "If only my mom could see me now!" I don't think that this is a lifestyle that anyone I know/knew growing up could ever have pictured me in. But I LOVE it! It's so different from anything I've known growing up. Country living was only something I saw on tv or in the movies and now I'm living it! And to be perfectly honest, I used to dream of living in wide open spaces and being out in the country. And here I am. How lucky am I?
