Living Life Large

Whenever I go on vacation, I always live by "I can rest when I get home."
Well, I guess I'm going to have to extend that to my life with the whole "I can rest when I die."
"I can rest when I die"...is that a thing, or did I make that up.

Anyways...another fun-filled weekend in the books.
Saturday afternoon we went to Hugo to the Colorado Championship Ranch Rodeo.
Look at these two little buckaroos!
This is a new favorite picture for me.

One of the highlights of this rodeo is that I get to see my friend Tori.
Tori lives straight south of me.
About six hours straight south of me, in Earth, TX.
I met my sweet friend through blogging and I just wish that that six hours was more like sixty minutes because I would love to get to hang out with her more.

So, this cute little blue-eyed, blond-haired cowboy.
About half way to Hugo, I look over at John Wayne and tell him that we have a problem.
We forgot the bop.
GW was fine the whole time we were at the rodeo.
He was way into all the action, and Great Grandma kept him well supplied with snocones and M&Ms.
But the second we strapped him into his carseat for the ride home...oh my goodness, let me tell you, it was not pretty.
The ENTIRE 40 miles home were filled with the biggest hissy I have ever witnessed.
To say we have a bit of a bop issue, would be an understatement.
{*For the those of you wondering what the heck a "bop" is, in our world, a pacifier is lovingly referred to as a bop.}

Sunday, we loaded back up, armed with a whole supply of bops, and headed to the big city for Farm Credit's employee picnic.
We went to the Sky Sox game, Colorado Springs minor league baseball team.
The kids had never been to a baseball game and were pretty excited.

The park has a fun "kids zone" complete with a couple of bounce houses, slides and a pitching area.
John Wayne beamed as his kids rocked it at the pitching area.
"Step and throw," T would repeat to herself each time she stepped up to throw.
GW did pretty good too!

The game and activities were fun, but it was super hot out.
So we concluded our day by visiting Lolo at Dairy Queen to get ice cream.

So we started another work week with bags strewn about and piles of laundry that I'm not sure if they're clean or dirty, but we're living life large, and for now, that's all that matters!
