i'm here!

Long break between posts...we have been busy!! July is almost over and it went by just as fast as June did. Ugghhh! I feel like I am missing summer. We haven't even been to the beach yet! But most of the things we've been doing are fun. Friends, family, etc. We did have a good time on vacation though! A few days away from normal life was really nice. I took a bunch of pictures, but they do not do justice! The Black Hills is soooooo gorgeous!! I could go there every year and not get sick of the views. We were only there for 2 1/2 days by time we drove out there and back, and one of those days was spent at Paul's Dad's Cousin's ranch (confused yet?) not too far from the ND border. AKA in the middle of nowhere. I'm talking 45 miles between towns, 3.5 mile dirt trail for a driveway, free-range cattle. It was fun to visit and all, but I could only handle living out there for like a week, and then I'd be ready to see some peeps instead of cows. Ha!

This was right after Paul's hat blew off his head! It was flippin' windy the day we were at the Badlands! We had to make sure we found a Runnings the next day to purchase a new's his special IH cap...

On the Needles highway

Look! Cows! I loved the 'Cattle at Large' signs, but I didn't get a good picture of one b/c someone didn't want to stop for me...

This is the driveway to the ranch we spent the day at. Yeah.

I have this feeling that August is going to fly by like the last two months Lots of fun stuff going on though, and I am looking forward to it! Hopefully in the next couple days I will have a new baby nephew to share pictures of! So excited! I attempted making a blanket. It's cute, but not anywhere close to perfect...and if you know me, it annoys me. I wanted to start over, but my mom talked me out of it. I'm glad she did b/c I don't have time to make another one. :) I'll share some pics later once I finish the last couple stitching. Which I should be doing right now!
