Guns, Gambling and Bull riding!

We took a quick weekend trip to Las Vegas and had a great time!
 
 
 
Dustin made sure to pack his neck pillow...which we all made fun of multiple times.


 
We discovered that bull riding was in town the same weekend so of course had to check it out.
Dustin found the Tyson booth.


 
I can't remember the name of this bull but he's a retired champion.
He really wasn't as big as I thought a bull riding bull would be.

 
These two were super excited to find $3 Pabst on the strip.
 

 
We found much better things to drink.
 
 
We decided it would be fun to go to a shooting range.
It was FANTASTIC!
 
 

 
They got us all suited up in really cute ear and eye wear.
 
 

 
And then we got down to business.
Kerryann and I shot a glock and an AK 47!



 
Dustin shot some unique guns that I can't remember.
This one was a "Grease Gun."

 
I surprised myself with pretty accurate and consistent shooting.
I almost hit the "X" with the Glock.
I might need to do this again.




 
They were both fun to shoot but I think I prefer the small Glock.
This one left a bruise on my shoulder.



 
Dustin enjoyed his clown target.
 
 
There was also a lot of this....Dustin gambling and me drinking Starbucks.
 

 
We had a great time, saw a few shows and lost a little money!
We will be back again someday soon!

Farming Time!

The kids both love riding in the combine with Grandpa Steve.
 
 
 
Preston has told me more than once "There is no room for you, Mommy."
So, he packs a bag with snacks and drinks and a few tractors and off he goes with Grandpa.

 
Buddies.

 
After he was done in the combine, we hopped in the semi with Jerry!
Waiting for the semi to be filled was a little less action that he is used to.
He had his tractors all over the floor, a few ears of corn and we shared donut holes too while we waited.
But once it was full and we headed down the highway he LOVED that Jerry used the air horn about 10 different times!
We gave Grandma a good long honk when we pulled into the office where she was working!
Preston thought that was pretty funny.

 
Peighton got out early that afternoon so we headed back out to let her ride with Grandpa.
While we waited we did a lot more farming in the dirt.


 
We had a great day riding in the combine, the semi, helping Grandma Sue take lunches out, picking up some down corn and we even got to hop in the grain cart!
A great day for Bubba!

Annual pizza picnic in the truck!

One of their favorite parts of harvest is eating pizza in the back of Grandma Sue's truck.
 
Peighton has asked at least 10 times WHEN we get to do it.
Well, it finally happened!

 
Pizza, chips and Jell-O jigglers.
A dinner of champions.

 

 
 

 
Then they decided to use Grandma Sue's truck as a trampoline.
Pants were optional.


 
Lots of fun and giggles while they did their part to help with harvest!

It's official...I'm a Soccer Mom

 
 
 
 
This boy got to start soccer last week.
He wears "Shin Gardens."
Yep, that's right.
Might be my favorite part.



 
On a side note, check out our crop of pumpkins!

 
He is a very serious soccer play.

 
They pretty much play as a herd and it's really fun to watch.

 
We can't wait for the next game this weekend!

One last camping trip of the season

 
We took the camper out one last time before it gets put away for the winter.
 
 
 
We decided to try Lake Darling and it was fabulous!
 
We were right on the lake and our campsite had a dock right behind it.
We spent a lot of time there!


 
Peighton LOVES all the activities we do together while camping.
Coloring and beating me at card games are a few of her favorites.

 
Little Miss Adrian came to visit and had a blast playing with these two monkeys.

 
Yes, we encouraged the kids to play in the dog pen.
We got a few looks from people walking by...

 
Preston played in or on the red tub most of the time.

 
They love to fish with their daddy.

 
Check out the concentration on that boy.
Peighton on the other hand is "Chatty Cathy" most of the time.

 
He's going to make a great fishing partner for Dustin.

 
We caught lots of little ones which we expected since the lake was just reopened.

 
He cracks me up!

 
Even when the fish are little it's still exciting!

 
Lake Darling might be our new favorite place to camp.
 

 
Dustin was pretty surprised when she pulled this one out of the lake!
Pretty big for Lake Darling right now!
 
It was a great last camping trip of the season with lots of fishing, biking, fires and games.
We will for sure be going back next year hoping to catch even bigger ones!

Preston FINALLY got his first day of school!

Preston was supposed to start school last Monday....but then they let school out early due to the heat.
So, I had one sad little boy when his first day of school was cancelled!
 
We had our pictures all done and everything!
 
 
 
He was very excited he FINALLY got to wear his new shoes!



 
Peighton was very excited for his first day.
She has been telling him all about school for weeks now.




 
He is just so darn cute.
 
 
 
 
 
After the first day was a bust we tried again the next day!

 
 



 
When he gets there each day he has to find his bucket and do the activity inside it while everyone arrives.
He's always excited on the drive to school to find out what his bucket will hold!

 
The first day was one of our favorites: Play-doh and knives!
 
He is LOVING school and playing with is new buddies each day.
