On the Road Again!

Last week, we were able to go back home to Wyoming and visit our families. Christian is finally done checking fields and hasn't gotten into the full swing of soil sampling and harvest yet, so we took advantage of some slow time to go and see everyone. Plus, one of the big reasons was so he could do a little recruiting at Northwest College, so we got to use company time and vehicle! On our way down we spent the night with Matthew and Charlene. They are always SO nice to let us stay with them on our trips. I don't know if they know just how much we appreciate them always being willing to put us up for a night and feed us...they are the best! After a night in Laramie, we headed and stayed 2 nights in Powell with my family where we got to meet my brother's new baby, Isabelle, visit my grandparents, see my sister who came home from school to see everyone, went on a date with my hubby without the kids, and had dinner with all the family! We then spent 2 nights in Lovell with Christian's family. While there, we canned salsa, helped chase cows, went to the General RS broadcast and got to hang out with everyone. Before we knew it, it was back to Laramie with Matthew and Charlene on our way home! It was so nice to get away as a family and be able to see all of our family! We are looking forward to Thanksgiving when we can see everyone again! (sorry for the pictures being backwards...I didn't have enough patience to fix them today)
Our family before we left to go home!
On our way home, we picked up lunch and went over to Cabelas and picniced with the ducks. The boys LOVED watching them!
My cute boys!
Carson with all his "weapons". He and Jacob played bad guys for a good portion of our stay.
Carson riding on the tractor with a cat. These poor cats get MAULED by all the little kids...and they don't seem to mind!
Riding on Ralph
Carson riding the horse all by himself. He was so excited to tell me when he got back from helping do cows that he rode it all by himself!

Adam really liked all the weapons Carson had while riding the horse. He said he used to do that all the time...and still does it on occasion. Looks like you guys are doing great.
