Our weekend....

Studly Cowboy rode all week last week to push the cattle down to the ranch on the desert...
this weekend we were able to go down and help sort cattle...
okay, so I'm not much help when I'm chasing after two young kids, trying to drive the truck, take pictures and drink Dr. Pepper all at once....
I think he gave up on me....
shucks....
Here are just a few views of our weekend...
*warning*
Studly Cowboy will be working on the ranch and winter range for the next 7 months so you are for warned girls...
a lot of desert pictures to come....
sorry...


little boy blue enjoying the 70 degree weather...
hoping his turn to ride comes soon, hence the spurs....
poor thing never did climb on a horse....



This little munchkin did though...
and yes, that blood curdling scream you all heard...
that was Clancey when she was told she had to get off the horse....
This is Studly Cowboy and my "Old Soul" child pushing the cattle into the corrals....


And here they are sharing a "job well done" hug...
no major problems in getting over 1,000 head of cattle corralled...
well not counting having to replace 6 railroad ties and a dozen poles on the alley way the herd ran through....



Did you notice I mentioned the 70 degree weather....
and lots, and lots, of sunshine...
guess what happens to a fair skinned, (I will not say redheaded)
blond headed prairie girl that hasn't seen this kind of weather for a couple months???
Yep, I'm nursing one heck of a sunburn...
sigh...

Great photos of your weekend. We had a beautiful weekend weather wise here in SLC, too. It was in the low seventies all weekend and then late last night we were treated to a wonderful thunderstorm.

Enjoying your blog. Sorry about your sunburn.
