Yippee Ti Yi Ya
I Wanna Be A Cowboy!

Up by the first light of the morning...and off to Papa Bob and Grandma Sue's house for loading up calves to go to the market. This little one has had a busy morning before lots of folks have crawled out of bed.

Papa Bob is ready to start the calves down the shoot and Sloan has to watch from outside the fence until he's a little bigger.

My nephew John is over helping today with the cattle and then he will be busy on the tractor raking hay the rest of the day. I'm sure his Papa will appreciate the help.

Got to watch out for one calf she's just a bit on the wild side....yes the ol' cowboy can still scramble up the fence.

Finally the last ones make their way to the trailer.

Sloan is practicing his skills herding Papa and Grandma's puppies.

Lil' Dan and my Mom just before Dan goes to work and Mom has a full day planned canning vegetables from the garden.

Sloan and I headed home and he found a present waiting on him from Betty and Trinity and he was so excited. They gave him a truck and a book about tractors, trucks, diggers and dumpers.

Of course we had to go outside for a little T-Ball practice.

Play awhile in the sandbox that his Dad and Uncle JJ made for him.

Take time to water the flowers.

Give the birds and Daisy a drink.

Oh and what better fun than to chase his "MoMo with the waterhose.

Well it's just about lunch time....wander what's in store for this afternoon.

Hope you'll take some time today and enjoy the simple things of life!

Happy Trails....Ginger
