old friends

Heidi and I have been friends since our children were young.  I was around when she had the two youngest. They are more like family.  It was wonderful to see them.

 These two love birds were married this year and they were absolutely adorable.

 Laughing and being goofy is what we do best.

 Just the boys.

One last one that I could not resist including.

the ranch

 My sister in law’s home where we stayed.

There were a couple of these cute little bridges throughout the property.

I loved walking across them or I would just watch the water flow underneath them.  It was all so very serene.

The ranch cat….I can’t remember her name.  We mostly just called her kitty.  She hated people…most of them anyway.  She would snuggle my legs when I was working on something but ignored me most other times.

 The horses were fun to watch in the evenings.  They came close in the morning and ran in the evenings. 

I’m obsessed with inspiration boards.  I love to see what inspires others.  It is always so different.  This one is Tricia’s.  I loved it.

Tricia never does anything half way.  They had a little open house for me at an adorable little shop called Jane & Main.  Tricia made gourmet rice crispy treats for the occasion.  (Oreo, Neapolitan, and Oh Henry)  I tell her that she is Martha Stewart on steroids.

Oops I almost forgot about Larry.  He was a naughty bull on a Ranch that bordered the Eardley Ranch.  He was so entertaining.  He had such personality I could spot him a mile away.  I decided he deserved a name, a name like Larry.  Gotta love that Larry!

Wyoming visit with family

 It was this guys birthday so we celebrated Angry Bird style. 

 Gordon’s mom and her husband Bill.

Gordon’s oldest sister….she looks just like her mom.

Gordon’s brother who acts just like Si from Duck Dynasty.  My nephew handed him a pitcher and a cup…..he was confused.  When we explained that he reminded us of Si he said, “I am nothing like Si, I’m not a Vietnam Vet!”  Uhhhhhhhhhh!  *crickets* LOL

Meet Tricia Gordon’s other sister and her oldest son Cody.

Gordon’s brother Charlie’s kids.  I loved seeing them.  I can’t express how wonderful it was to see them!  They lost their mom to cancer almost eight years ago and they lost her mom just this year.  They have been through so much.  Love them to pieces.
