First Timer

Today was the second to last day of swimming lessons for Brigette, but her first time jumping off the diving board!!! She jumped off twice today (but only after Ridge jumped off) She did have a little help from me, and her second jump was much better than her first, but Jessica only got the first one on video. She definitely is my little fish, she loves to swim and does everything "Aunt Tiny" asks her to do! She keeps telling me she wants to keep going swimming, so I guess we will sign her up again!! She loves to look under the water, push off the wall and she can float on her back all by herself!! Heck, the rate shes going, she'll be swimming by the end of summer!

Laughing Tera

OK, so everyone may not think this is as darn cute as I do, but how can this not be the cutest thing you've seen today?? (I know her Nanna is going to love this!) I just love this little girl!!! I LOVE to chew on her chubby cheeks, tickle her little fat leggies and kiss her all over!!! She is SO MUCH FUN!! On Sunday she learned how to "growl." It is so funny!! All night she has been looking at Zach and growling at him, it cracks me up!! She is such a great baby, in fact, she just fell asleep next to me on the couch. This little giggle session of hers must have wore her out!!! What a sweetie!!! xoxxo

Grand Canyon Hike

Yesterday, Zach took a little trip with his Uncle Cole and some members from his ward. They actually left Friday night, and hiked from the South Rim to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon on Saturday. He got home around midnight and had sent me these two pictures. He is pretty tired and sore today but him and Brad are already discussing hiking it together!!

Foot in my mouth...

On Sunday my Grandma Bushman came over for dinner. Afterwards we were all sitting around talking when Blaine asked my grandma if she wanted to sit down. Our conversation went a little something like this:
Grandma: "No the couches are too low"
Me: "Your not too old, 80 is the new 60!"
Grandma: "I didn't say I was too old, I said the couches are too low!!"

and again, I feel really stupid....

Love you Grandma!!!

Lazy AJ & LIV

Last weekend we branded cows. It used to be everyone in my dads family would come up. They would build a fire and rope the calves and cut their ears and have biscuits and gravey and it was almost like a real rodeo!! Now its just my family. But we still love it, even if they don't rope them anymore, they just push them through the squeeze. But I wouldn't miss it for anything!! So I think my moms computer ate some of my pictures, if I find them, I'll post them!! So first is a picture of Blaine, he is reading Briggie a book from the library that she checked out. Here is Brigette using my parents propane tank as a horsey-cow, like she couldn't ride the ones in the field behind her!!!

Since my dads tractors all burned to the ground, he now has the fun job of figuring out how to run the two new ones, here he is playing with one of them.

Of course Brigette had to have a ride...

And of course Papa gave it to her!!

She waved and threw kisses every time they went by.

I think he likes the new tractor!

Here is baby Emmaree at her very first calf branding, she was late, and slept the whole time...oh well!!!

Ashree just being Ashree!!! That's also my mommy dearest hiding behind the gate.

Look at those cowboys, I just love them!!

Hopefully I will be able to find out where the rest of my pictures went. I know they aren't very great, but me and Ash walked to the branding corrals and I didn't remember my camera, so these are off my phone. If you are wondering about the title, those are my dads brands, a "lazy" AJ and the LIV that was my grandpas. It wasn't Brigette's first branding experience, but she was very upset at us for hurting the baby cows. She covered her eyes and cried almost the whole time. She didn't like it that the calves were crying. But afterwards she did go in the corral and try to pet them. And I have to give it to Matthew, he actually tried to ride one!!! Now that is a cowboy in training!!!!

The kids absolutely loved it and have been begging me to ask Rachelle if we can come back over and play again!! Hayden and Mason went with us but poor Tanner was not feeling to great and missed out. He was pretty upset when he saw what he missed out on. I thought it was awesome!! In fact I wanted to play too!!! It has three slides and a little pool!! What a blast!!! Thanks Rachelle!!! Brigette going down the big slide!
