Just for Starters Summer 2009

Life has been crazy busy this summer, thus, once again I have fallen off the blogging band wagon. So here is a quick catch-up blog of what has been going on this summer. B-rex is 6 months old. He is definitely a chubby checkers. He almost weighs 20lbs. He LOVES his food as evidenced by his chubby cheeks. You also might notice the rolls on his arms, wrist, neck, and legs. He sits by himself, rolls all over the place, and is so close to crawling. His personality keeps us all laughing.
This is face after he realizes there is no more food :(

Loves going out to do chores with dad.
6 months is the funnest age. So far he loves everything. I cannot feed him fast enough. He literally grabs cries the second you take the spoon out of his mouth until the next bite gets there. Besides baby food he loves the taste of cheetos, horseradish, carrots, Texas roadhouse rolls, watermelon, and rootbeer popcycles.

He is trying to crawl but can only face plant at this point. But who wouldn't being top heavy in the cheek area.

Summer nights and rodeo season is our favorite time of the year. We recently went to a 3 day rodeo in Southern Utah where Brex got to sit aboard his very first saddle. He really did like it he was just crying because it wasn't on a horse.

I have been racing on Tig and Smoke. They are my other babies. They are easy going at home but in competition they are like a fresh lit roman candle - hang on tight!

We love taking the horses for a ride in the mountains. The last time we went was a little scary though. Out of no where this crazy coyote or fox (not sure which) started chasing right behind us barking. (I think he was calling for reinforcement). I tried to tell him this was not "dances with wolves" and Marshal was not "Kevin Costner" but he insisted on following us. We saw a lot of dear, a buck or two, only one snake, and a rabbit.

Oh my goodness, I could just eat those cheeks. Brex is so stinking cute, and look at those amazing eyes. I think I do need to on a horse back ride you and take Andrew and Sampson, but I would like one without coyotes and snakes. EEK!

He is so cute! I can't decide who he looks the most like, you or Marshal. You are still racing?!?! Let us know if you ever compete up this way, it would be so fun to go watch you!

Actually, I am starting school this fall, I'm all registered and everything. I'm a little nervous to take anatomy. I've put it off long enough and must now face my fears. Lane is excited to start grad school, he actually got an assistanceship that will pay him 2,000 a month! YAHOO!!! It will be over before we know it I am sure. I'm so glad that you love your job!! I'm sure that you are great at it. I'd go to you if we lived close. If we are ever close by, I'll for sure get in contact with you. Email me and give me your number or something so we can meet up someday.
