my family rocks

Silly me!  I threw my back out last week.  Man oh man, has my family stepped up.  I called my mom at 6:30 and she drove an hour to come to my rescue.  She took care of the baby all day and found me a chiropractor. My brother-in-law and husband fended for themselves for a couple days till I was back in the game.  For two days, I felt GREAT!  I even went camping.  It was not to last.  Last night my back slipped out again.  It was so bad I think it was making me physically ill.  Either that or I just happened to get food poisoning at the same time (Rotten luck!)  At 7:30 this morning when the baby started crying, I dropped a bottle in his crib and went back to bed.  I sent one text and within 10 minutes, my cousins were feeding and changing the baby and my hubs was pulling me off the bathroom floor and taking me to the chiropractor. 

I feel much better now, but plan on taking it a little easier this time.  Thanks family!  Its so great to have someone to call when I fall apart.

Oh summer...

It's been so long since I wrote anything!  We have been enjoying a fantastically busy summer.  The baby loves to go swimming, so we have done that a few times.  Last weekend we got to go up to my favorite place in the world: the ranch. 

My family has a reunion in Salmon Idaho, and it is SO nice.  We went 4- wheeling, horseback riding, shooting, and helped train a horse. 

This week we are down south visiting my Husband's parents.  We went Craw-dadding at the lake today.  I can't lie, I did my fair bit of squealing.  Those pinchy monsters are gross!  Plus, one time I grabbed one that had just molted it's hard shell and my thumb went through it.  GAH! 

Pictures to come: I'm not home and also, I've been using the film.  But they're great.  You can bet on that.

I love vacations.  Some of the best memories I have are of family vacations.  They definetly make me a happy momma.
