Muttn' Bustn' - 3/9/12

 After watching a round a kids riding sheep in the little Rodeo events, Gavin begged us to do it, that little cowboy.

 He wasn't even nervous.
 He rode "Bo Sheepus", who decided to run around in circles after leaving the pen, but Gavin hung on great, the 2nd longest, and got a score of 85 I think.
It was so awesome how brave he was.
He loves wearing his Muttn' Bustn' shirt now.

Rodeo & Livestock Show - 2

The Tractor Pull
Gavin was selected from the audience for the 5 yr old bracket
We were cheering so loud for him
The trick is to not stop to keep momentum. He did 3 rounds
And was able to successfully pull 100lbs. He did a great job.
A good lesson to just keep going, don't stop.
[I LOVE this picture; he's SO happy!]

2nd & 1st Dental Checkups - 3/8/12

 Gavin didn't remember going to the dentist before, so this was like his 1st visit all over again, but he was very cooperative and really liked "Mr. Sucky".
 He's not crying, just doing a big Dinosaur mouth
 He thought the dentist was A O.K.
 Linnaea finally let the dentist look in her mouth, but only from the comfort of her stroller.
I rewarded them with play time at the mall. After a while, a mom had her little boy give Gavin some quarters to put in the horse so it would actually move. They were thrilled to really ride the horse, instead of just pretending. I just thought that was funny.

Putting in our Garden Box - 3/3/12

Dale made a 12ft x 12ft box
We all helped dig the grass out, even the almost 2 yr old Linnaea (we try to grow workers around here)
4 cubit yards of Vegetable Soil delivered from Living Earth

 Many wheel barrow trips to the back yard from the soil heep
 I helped even it out before we planted some of our seedlings growing in the laundry room.
We were so hungry we went to CiCi's, our favorite all you can eat place, for dinner.
Long Day.
