Troy, Trae, and Jay getting ready to go...loading 4 wheelers and dirt bikes into the trailer.
Dylan and Taylor hanging out before we left. Taylor is definitely stylin' in her new sunglasses....I think we wore ones that looked like that in the 80's?!?!?!?!
Dylan riding his little dirt bike.....he looked so cute in all of his "stuff" riding that thing!!!!!!
Taylor, Delaney, And Jayden taking off on the 4 wheeler.....and Taylor is still looking as cool as ever in her shades!!!!!!
Kale is riding the dirt bike that Jay and Trae had.....this is like the one he is saving his money to buy...so that worked out perfect.....it was kind of a "test drive" for him!!!! And he did really good!!!!
Kenton made one ride with his mom and fell asleep less than half way into the ride so this is where he spent most of his afternoon....on a blanket in the shade.....doesn't sound so bad to me!!!!
This is where city meets country.......Jacoby has to take a little time out from riding to do a little texting.....this cracked me up!!!!
Brad taking a spin on the little dirt bike.....doesn't look to comfy?!?!!?
Taylor also thought she needed to test drive the little dirt bike....she doesn't look so bad...kinda' cute!!!!
Trae and Brad getting ready for take off!!!
Amanda thought it had been awhile since she had rode a dirt bike so Jay was giving her a little advice....not sure if it was helpful or not but none the less it was given!!!!!
I know they both are very cute.....BUT I just can not help but think that they may be up to something????? Or maybe just a little girl talk who's to say?!?!?!?!
And we had to have a group shot at the end of the day......not my photo so it is a ways away...but there we all are. Everybody had fun and I think we all slept very, very good last nite!!!

When Delaney took her turn trying the Baritone....I think maybe Taylor is trying to tell her something......not sure but I think that is what that look is saying!!!!! So after the "music nite" I think we are still back at the very beginning......why does he really want to do band if he does not like to get up in front of a crowd??????? Did anybody count how many times I used the word....instrument?????hahahaha!!!!

Here is Demster and his loving sister Bentley.....this is about the only way she likes to be close to him....if he is sleeping and her too I guess!!!!! So far she is tolerating him and that is about it. She is very spoiled so she does not like to share with him so she will run in front of him to cut him off if she thinks he is going to try to get some love!!!!! But she may not like him so much because this morning he thought she was his GIRLFRIEND not his SISTER......if ya know what I mean!!!!! So that may tend to be a little annoying!!!!!!

Kale, Delaney, and Taylor. We had them done in 2002 also...... it is funny to look at how much they have changed. I will have to get them out and post those....you will get a kick out of them.
Here they are showing off their "artwork". This really shows how much they really look like the drawings. They liked having it done but they felt "weird" having people watching them and then laughing!!!!

Fun-loving and full of a million questions....he is 11 and soon to be 12....so as a boy he is at that point in his life when he is not a little kid but is not old enough to hang out with the teenagers but I think he is at the age when his body is starting to change......today I was taking him to a friends house for a birthday party....I was driving and he was in the passengers seat....so he put down the sun visor and opened the mirror and was really taking a close look at his face...after a bit he looks at me and says......for being only 11 I sure do have alot of hair in my nose!!!!!!!! Now as a mother I am not sure what to say at this point......so I reply with.....everybody has hair in their nose.....and his answer was no mom I really have ALOT of hair....more than most people!!!!!!
So once again I am looking for some parenting advice.......where is this going????? What is it that he is wanting me to say??? Troy just laughs at me!!!! I am guessing that alot of hair is a good thing......I know him and a friend were so excited when Alex had 4 armpit hairs!!!!! Very interesting to me and I wonder who counted those 4 hairs???? Life with boys.....never boring I guess!!!!
And one last quick note.....we just got done watching Michael Phelps from the USA win his 8th GOLD MEDAL in the Olympics....WOW is that AWESOME or what!!!! I love watching his mother while he is swimming....they have an amazing story!!! Oh and you can buy a copy of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics for $29.99 on nbcolympics.com I think that is the right place!!!! Good nite to you all!!!!

Tonite we(Troy,Delaney, and I) went out to eat with my mother-in-law and father-in-law to Williamson Tap....home of the papa burger!!! The papa burger is a hamburger or cheese burger the size of a dinner plate.....and people do eat the entire thing from time to time!!!! Kale(age 11) ate one the last time we there!!! WOW!! It is not world famous but a good place to eat....if you don't mind a very small place and by no means is it fancy....you can play your favorite music on the juke box, play a game of pool, and buy just about anything you may need at home.....combs, dish soap, and I think you get the idea......and it is inexpensive!!!! You have to be ok with that!!! Troy ALWAYS gets chicken livers......I do not know what they taste like nor do I want to know....it must be an acquired taste....and it must run in the family because guess what....his mother ordered them too......and they LOVED them!!!! I usually do not live on the edge when it comes to my food....I find something I like and that is usually what I order every time I go out to eat.......Laney and I eat alot alike......never living on the edge!!!! But the best thing of all was that Iowa went to a no smoking law......so we could eat without having that smell in the air and on our clothes when we left!!!
Taylor and Kale were off being social butterflies tonite so missed out on the Williamson experience!!!!
Oh.....I just about forgot to tell you....last nite we were at the fair.....yes AGAIN!!!! We went to a concert.....the group HAIRBALL was playing on the A.E. free stage.....Hairball is a group that plays all 80's songs and dress the parts of many of the lead singers......it was very interesting we did not stay for the entire thing the kids were kind of looking at us like we were some of the strangest people they had ever laid eyes on......so we all moved on!!! But next year if any of you 80's people are up for it I think we are going to try it again.....with out children!!!! So put it down in your day planner for next year in August......HAIRBALL LIVE!!!!!! You may be able to google them i am not sure.....haven't tried yet.

These are the shoes that most of the guys who shear wear....they are kind of funky looking but i was told that they bunch up on the top of the foot and that is padding....i guess so that the sheep hooves don't hurt the top of the foot and they also help give them extra traction so they don't slip and fall.....they are not anything that i expect to see on the runway anytime soon but they are useful...we all can use a useful pair of shoes!!!!!
