Park Day

I can't believe it is only 62 today.
We took the dogs to Pet Smart and the park.  It was Jamocha's first outing with us and she did great. She would not load in the truck so I had to pick her up so she better learn because picking her up is a lot!
It was adoption day at Pet Smart and they had 8 or so extra dogs on top of the 8 or so with their people in the store.  She was very nervous.
Malaki is a Pet Smart pro.  

They look great :)

We will be celebrating Canyons bday a week early because he will be sad if Jared isn't here for it. And Jared is scheduled to go to basic on Oct 6th. Just want to let you know :)

A little Fun at the Fair

I say a little fun because we only stayed about 1 1/2 hours.  We went so we could see Canyon's entries in the Art and Crafts, but that wasn't open tonight :(  It was free entry night and were not coming back and paying, but Canyon class is having a field trip here to see the entries tomorrow so at least he will get to see his stuff.  We did visit what animals they had such as goats, pigs, chickens, and bunnies.

Then we went on one ride. 
(Thank you Sahara for getting us tickets!)
We rode The Stampede.

That's Sahara and Jared down there.

We spotted our truck.

Then we watched the motorcycle in a cage show.

Wish we could have stayed longer, but the fair it soooo expensive.

Good Ol' Time

Canyon and his classmates on their first field trip.  They went to the Dardanelle Visitor's Center and the public library.

Sahara's Birthday

Thursday, September 4th, Sahara turned 19!
Jared was out of town but Brittany came over with a handful of balloons.

 Then we made sliders for dinner with Brittany.

And had mini cup cakes which are really tasty!

Saturday we decided to really celebrate.  We all went out to Las Palmas for lunch.

After lunch, Jared and Canyon went to the house to hang out and the girls went to Pottery Worx.  We ended up each picking a mug to paint.

Sahara tried to do an ombre look with blues, a red handle and red inside.

Brittany picked one with a chevron pattern and used blue and purple with green speckle inside and for the handle.

Moms was a mug in the shape of an owl.

Here they are, upside down because the bottoms are drying.

Looks like blue and purple were popular today!
They all turned out great.  We go back in about 10 days to pick them up.

Then back to the house for gifts.  Thank you all for the cards, Starbucks gift-cards, and money :)
Plus she got a new, very light weight computer that will hopefully take her through college.  Jared got her a pair of Oakley sunglasses which he gave to her early because he has zero patience.

And last was an ice cream cake!


Happy Birthday girl! 
 Love you bunches :)

Spring River Trip

Sahara, Canyon, and Jared went to camp at Spring River with dad and Rita.
It's about 3 1/2 hours to get there and Jared drove.  They left shortly after Canyon got home from school.

Friday evening.
Canyon is a little model at the camp site.
Heading in the water.  It's very cold because as it's name states, the river comes from a spring so the water is underground and doesn't have the chance to warm up in the sun.



Some guy there who made a mask out of different skeletal parts to scare people floating by.
Sahara found and egg of some sort.  She brought it home for us to figure out what it is from.
She googled it and thinks it's a goose egg. 
A house of some sort with tons of windows.

Party barge up ahead!
They had a good time. Canyon was sunburned even though they applied sunscreen several times. 
They got rained on while tubing. 
And they had lots of stories about snakes and drunk people!

Just me, myself, and I

It's been one of those weeks.  
Now the kids are off on a camping trip and I am enjoying this colada on the patio watching a sun shower and a rainbow develop.

Ooooh!  It's a double rainbow :)
