WILDE Family Reunion

The Wilde family reunion was held in Oakley, Ut at Grandma and Grandpa Wilde's home. It is beautiful there. Bristol rode a REAL pony. Yes, I said REAL pony. A while back Ty and I brought my sister Ashley to Oakley. As we were entering the valley there is a very large red barn. It's not your typical barn, but more like a "Hollywood" barn that you would see in the movies. Ashley saw it and exclaimed "Look, a REAL barn." Ty and I just laughed. Well, you might laugh at me, but I always thought that a pony was just another name for a baby horse. When I'm wrong I'll admit it, and boy was I wrong. This is a REAL pony. ;)
I'm so proud of Bristol for riding it too! I have always said that I believe horses to be one of God's most beautiful creatures, and I'm pretty afraid of them. Ty's cousins have it out to change my mind, but until then Bristol is braver than I am.

I didn't get a picture, but Ty's Mom, Aunt, and cousin all twirled the baton and brought them to the reunion. It brought back some great memories of my twirling days. I had so much fun twirling when I was younger, and it was great to try and do it again!


We have some great friends here in Logan. Bristol has some pretty cute buddies.First, her little bro "Big T." Aren't they cute? I think so.

Meet Brock. I caught them like this after they had been swimming at the aquatic center. Too funny.

4th of July...a Titch Behind

The 4th of July this year was great! Most traditions I LOVE. Parades, rodeos, fireworks, BBQs, however one this year was quite different than the rest. It'll take some getting used to. At 5AM in Oakley, Ut a cannon is fired every 10 or so minutes down the streets of town for about an hour. 5AM! However, the rest of the day was great. It all started with a fun parade!

Followed by some good ol' rodeo'in. The Oakley rodeo was a BLAST. I've only ever been to a few, and this one was great. World class cowboys, "Princesses" as Bristol called the rodeo queens, and some great bull riding.
Paying respect

It almost felt like date night. Having the kid's grandparent's around is great! They love to hold the kids which sure frees us up!

A couple of weekends ago we packed up and drove to Bear Lake. We just relaxed and had a good time in the sun! Getting ready to go was quite funny. Bristol wanted to be "packed " so I threw in the trunk. Next thing I knew she wanted her princess helmet on. I couldn't resist taking a picture!

We had a great time! You can't go to Bear Lake without getting a Raspberry Shake, which we did! Both of the kids slept the whole way home, I think that they had a great time!

Tim McGraw

A bit ago in Boise, Hailey, Chrissy, Kate, and I enjoyed an AMAZING concert! My Dad and Annie weren't able to go, so Kate and I got their tickets. Can you spell L.U.C.K.Y.? It was so much fun. I always tell myself, "Why would I buy tickets to go to a concert when I can just listen to their CD?" Well let me remind all of you...it is SO MUCH BETTER LIVE! Seriously, if you are ever contemplating, just get the tickets. We had a blast. Our seats were wicked close to the stage. Literally perfect!
The Band Perry opened first. They are sooooo good. Very entertaining, and totally better than the radio or CD. That doesn't happen very often, but they were great!
Chrissy, Hailey, Me, Kate. Kate looks so cute pregnant, and she was a trooper considering we pretty much stood for the whole concert! I think that the ice cream before and the roasted peanuts during helped a little!
Luke Bryan. 'Nuff said! He is cute! Very entertaining and a great voice!
And now for the hunk of meat himself. WOW! He is so great! A very real, and down to earth performer. He is so good, no wonder he has won so many awards. He came out on a stage that we didn't even know was there and ended up being a lot closer to us than we thought he would be. I was shaking with excitement! There is nothing like Tim McGraw live!
