Art purchase

Our church had an art show the other day
and I walked by this photograph and had
to stop and take it in. Something about it
just melted me, so my amazing husband
bought it for me. This picture of the picture
doesn't do it justice. Just take my word for it.

Birthday Fun

Most girls get a nice piece of jewelry or a spa
package for their birthdays, but not me.
Nope. Instead, I got........

a gun!

A 9mm Smith and Wesson to be exact

We went out and shot stuff
I'm so good at this!

A Packed Full Weekend

So this post might be really out of order but oh well. It seems like I only blog once a week, probably because the weeks are boring and slightly repetitive, and don't seem blogworthy, but I recently decided that my work is actually pretty entertaining and may be starting a quote of the day.
As for this particular post, we went to Corvallis this past weekend (Jim's training weekend) and got to take part in the Philomath Frollic and Rodeo....I know what you're thinking...."What?! That sounds amazing!!" Well let me tell you, it was that and more. Packed full of greasy food, greasy mullets and some pretty flippin insane bull fighting (Who knew that was still legal)
I spent the first half holding a baby and ignoring the rodeo, but I soon found myself surprisingly engaged!
First half of rodeo: I finally got to meet baby Bella!!
The halftime show....tame buffalos that
jumped up onto this trailer. Who knew!
Black Jenna and happy Kevin
Same picture.....different day

In between the parade and the rodeo, we went for a swim.

Swimming cap was to keep the perm in perfect form:)

The eager spectators of the Philomath parade!
This is for you Jimmy

Oh hey and here's Jenna again!

For those of you who didn't hear, Kevin Boss (Superbowl

champ from Philomath) was in the parade and Ryan was his

overly intense security gaurd.

This was the least exciting of the 3 bullfighting episodes

and it was still insane. The first guy hurdled the entire bull,

the second rode on top of his horns before being trampled and this

one......well, you'll see!

Happy 4th!

Jenna and Phil came over for the 4th.
We started out the weekend by going onto
the roof of our apartment and watching
the amazing Redmond parade!!

We made sure we were red white and blue

Note: the amazing crack shot!

We then headed to Fossil, OR for their

8th annual Bluegrass festival. Phil and Jim

represented wih National Guard shirts.

For those of you who don't know, Fossil

is a tiny little town. This building is the

Libray/City Hall/Fire Department

We hit up the local Shamrock pub where

Jim was a frequent vsitor during his stay inFossil

They took good care of us.

We had the best and biggest burger ever!
Laying in the sun listening to some really funny
bluegrass music, all of which contained lyrics of
either Fossil, sage brush, or a country road.

The beautiful Kelleys

On Saturday, the boys went golfing and we girls

got our hair done.

This is what happens when you brush out my curls!

Oh, did I mention that Jenna got a perm?

Sipping on a fruity drink waiting for the boys to

finish their nap

This is the closest thing I have to an after picture
for Jenna's perm.....maybe she posted one by now!
