The Big Sky


Grady had a lot of fun with Uncle Ry Ry.  He went on the ATV with him, and even drove Papa's pickup.

Bryan and the kids with Grandpa & Grandma Barta and Cousin Jamie




 Uncle Ry Ry taught Grady to say, "Hey Baby." But just to his mama :)  I guess he said, "She's not baby, she's Mama!" Too funny.


 Bryan's Uncle Alan saddled up his horse, Buckwheat, for Grady to ride.  Grady had the best time with Alan and Buckwheat and is still talking about it!  Grady could ride horses everyday!!

 Grady learned to say, "Giddyup Buckwheat!" and "Whoa!"

 We went to Bozeman for the day and saw our friends, Lexi, Verity & Nora and got to stop at the Museum of the Rockies!  Grady LOVES dinosaurs.  (We also stopped at the Dinosaur Museum in Thermopolis on the way to Cody, pictures will come later from my point and shoot)

 Lots of pool time at Grandma & Grandpas!

 We were also lucky enough to catch up with our friends one evening and their kiddos!  Grady gave all the girls hugs, but they're not too excited about it!


 Grady, Lucy & Tyler

What a goofy face Lucy!

We had a great time catching up with family, and now were looking forward to some down time at home and lots of swimming in the backyard!!

4th of July Weekend

 We started our 4th of July Weekend in Cody, WY 
We  had a family reunion of sorts for my Grandma Georgia's 90th Birthday.  She is one amazing pioneer woman!  Lucy was named after her - she shares her middle name 'Etta.'  We had a great time seeing lots of family we haven't seen in ages, and most of which our kids and Bryan had never met.  We also had the pleasure of staying with my Grandparents Ron & Bonnie in Cody.  Their house is on the Southfork and it has a stunning view of the mountains and the reservoir.  It's always nice to enjoy one-on-one time with family we don't get to see very often and we surely enjoyed our time with them.  The kids had a great time getting snuggles and we were spoiled with Bonnie's excellent cooking!
