Home again, home again...jiggity, jig!

A couple of weeks ago, we found out that Christian's family was going to be bringing calves home from Dry Head last weekend. We tossed around the idea of heading home to see everyone, but really couldn't make a decision on whether we should go or not. Last Sunday we finally decided we were going to go. Christian told me that we should either go home or he was going to go to Kansas City to a NASCAR race. So, of course, I chose to go home. We left here at 9:30 Thursday night...something I don't suggest doing...and got to Laramie about 1:30 Friday morning. We stayed the night with Matthew and Charlene and then Friday made the rest of the way home. We went and watched Jared's homecoming football game and Jacob march in the marching band Friday night. Saturday, we all went up into Dry Head to help bring the calves home. Well, I should clarify...Christian helped and I sat around and talked. It was fun to be with everyone. It was so beautiful up there. I love all the changing trees! Saturday night, we went and stayed in Powell with my family. Sunday, Christian had to go back and help get more cows, and I went to church with my family. That evening we had a huge turkey dinner...yummy and played cards. Monday we started our way back to Nebraska after seeing all the grandma's. We stayed with Matthew and Charlene again that night and went the rest of the way back home Tuesday after a stop in Cheyenne to do a little shopping. It was so much fun to see everyone! I love being at "home" with family. We sure do miss being close to them. Luckily, we get to see everyone again in two weeks when everyone is coming down here for Travis' blessing.

It looks like it was a great time! Travis is getting so big, he's so adorable, I can't wait to see him in person.
