Happy Father's Day

We had a really fun father's day. We went to Jase's parents house and grilled ribs. They turned out so good, probably because the king of the grill did the cooking. We had a fun dinner and then came home to relax. We were lucky too because the rain stayed away long enough for us to grill and enjoy some time outside.

Rexburg Air Show

This Saturday was the air show in Rexburg. It is a lot of fun. This year we were worried that we would be sitting in the rain to watch it, but we lucked out. The rain stayed away while we watched the show and as we got into the pickup it started to sprinkle. This is a father's day weekend tradition for us. Jase loves watching the old planes fly and I will admit they are pretty cool. This morning it was a little cooler but it warmed up and because of the cloud cover it was really comfortable weather.

Sheering Sheep

Today dad came over to sheer our sheep. I had to ask him if he remembered how. It's been a really long time since he has sheered sheep. Here are our hairy little lambies before their hair cuts.
Macy, Austin & Carter checking out how this is done. They were so excited that we got to put halters on the sheep. They led them all over the corral.
Grandpa Bird in action. He remembered how it is done.
After hair cuts. They always look so naked.

We had a tragedy in our family this week. My brother was in an accident with a horse trailer. The trailer came off the pickup and rolled killing my moms horse Bou and hurting my dad's horse Amber. My mom was so upset about losing her horse. The trailer below is after they got it put back together. The front of the trailer came off. Bou is now buried in the field behind Burtenshaw's cabin. We went with mom and dad to Kilgore to take Hadley more horses. The boys had fun playing in the field and picking the wild flowers.

Macy got to ride lilly and go with Grandpa & Hadley through the field to check the fence. She loved the ride but kept telling me the next day that her bum hurt.

Macy's Track & Field Day

Macy's school had a fun track & field day. They start with a family picnic. It was a lot of fun and the boy's were really excited to go. This is Carter's cheese sandwich he made with his lunchables. He took the whole thing of cheese and put two crackers around it. It was so funny watching him try to get his mouth around it.

Rexburg Splash Park

We had such a long streak of really warm weather so I took the boys to the Rexburg Splash park. We had never been and the boys had a great time playing in the water. Carter really wanted to go down the slide but he wasn't brave enough to get his face wet. At least this year he is willing to get wet.

Macy's School Program May 09

Macy had a fun little spring program at school. They did all of the songs that they had learned throughout the year. It was really fun to see Macy up there and she did really good not getting scared being in front of a crowd. I can't believe my little girl will be in 2nd grade now.
