What a crazy month! I am so behind in posting so this may get a bit long. The weather this month has been gorgeous and we have been taking full advantage of it.
Amelie and Siouxsee, a timber wolf that belongs to one of our tenants:
Amelie and Liv:
At the beginning of the month we went bridesmaid dress shopping with Auntie Alyssa, who is getting married in July! Amelie was a huge hit at the bridal shop and enjoyed mucking up all of their mirrors.
We also got Amelie’s first passport pictures done and are in the process of getting her passport processed for our upcoming trip to Mexico.
Then it was Amelie’s first easter! The easter bunny brought her a basket filled with bubbles, bath toys, books and eggs filled with baby snacks.
And let’s not forget the Easter Sloth…
Later in the month we went to the semi-annual Friends of the NRA Banquet. We entered Amelie in the youth raffle and she won a child sized camo .22 rifle! Now she can join her daddy to hunt raccoons on the property when she gets old enough.
We started the weekend off with our mommy-daughter Saturday; full of shopping, a walk through the rose garden and some swinging at the playground.
It was way too nice outside to be indoors so when we got home we took the pups for a walk down the ditch road behind our property.
On Sunday we started off the day with a visit to the Rocky Mountain Pumpkin Patch, where we picked out a pumpkin and went to the petting zoo.
We spent the rest of the day at a barbecue with good friends, food and music. We’re looking forward to spending next weekend carving our pumpkin and decorating for Halloween!
