I love mountains. From the day we moved here, I've made it a point to remind the girls to look at the natural beauty around us - to keep noticing and not take it for granted. And now that we are moving, I'm especially trying to soak up all the beauty. Isn't this just awesome? It may be a bit much for the heading "pretty", but that's where I'm putting it :)
These babies have been hanging out in our yard a lot lately. As long as the fence keeps them out of the garden, that's fine with me.
It is a family tradition to attend the Rodeo on July 3rd as the official "kick-off" of our Independence Day celebrations. Several other families we know go on the same night, so the kids have a section in the bleachers and the adults have a section. It's a fun-filled evening that makes everyone happy. I forgot to take a camera that night, but our 12 year old had a camera with her, so I'm using one of her photos.
Our middle "cowgirl" riding the mythical creature, the Jackalope. This thing is housed in a gas station not far from us - it's supposed to be a silly tourist attraction - and the younger girls think it's hysterical. They may also think it's a real animal :)
