County Fair

Last night two of my good friends, Sara and Laura, accompanied me to the Mills County Fair. We wandered through the livestock pens, enjoyed root beer floats, and - of course - watched the annual tractor pull!!!

It was a lot of fun... but once the tractors were done, the trucks started -
and their suped-up engines were crazy loud!

It was quite the event. As you can see...

A New Addition to the Family!!!


After three years of marriage, we've finally gone and done it!

We've joined the club that so many of our friends and family members are already a part of.














We got a dog!!!



Her name is Annie, short for "Annie Get Your Guns".
Which fits perfectly with our previous pet naming theme - our two cats, Emmett and Charlie, were named after characters from our favorite Westerns, "Silverado" and "3:10 to Yuma".


She's a three-year-old purebred black lab and is the best dog ever!
She can sit, stay, come, heel, fetch, and lots of other things!
She's completely adorable and makes a wonderful pet.


So far, she's getting along with the cats pretty well.
They aren't big fans of her... but we're hoping that they'll continue to warm up.
Fingers crossed!
