Let's get this party started!

It's the first day of second grade for The Littlest Cowboy. We always take a picture of the first day of school and put it in that years' folder of saved art projects and report cards. That way one day I can look through it with his children...sorry I'm getting a little teary eyed.

What a weekend. We celebrated Mr. Cowboy's birthday this weekend. Our merry band of three along with the folks from Nature's Barn Natural Products, Ken and Lauren Mooney, had a great time. We traveled up to the Catalooche Valley in the Blueridge Mountains to see the elk (Mr. Cowboy's favorite!), then some hiking and historical lessons about the area, lunch and a trip to REI (also his favorite!)

I honestly don't know many friends who'll get up at 4am and meet us at our house at 5am to drive 2 hours to go watch some humongous animals with a seven year old flopping around in the back seat with you then go hiking, and shopping with you. We had SO much fun!!!

I mean who could resist this awesomeness.  This is a shot of one of the many houses in the Cataloochee Valley, from inside it's neighboring barn.
