Back in the Saddle Just in Time for the 4TH

I can blog again. My computer is still broken but Aaron was able to get the software on his computer that would allow me to use my pictures again. In my opinion, what good is a blog without photos? That's what I want to see when I look at other blogs. So, since it has been so long I decided to start with the most current events and work my way back in time as I have the time. I have so many things to share. It has been so long.

We started the 4TH off with a bang. FIREWORKS PANCAKES. Pancakes with a relighting sparkler candle and red, white and blue sprinkles on top. Funny to watch but as you will hear Aaron say, "I Don't think Lucy is ready for tricks." She just wanted her yummy breakfast and did not want to wait for her candle to light again, putting fire back in the way of eating her pancakes.


After our exciting breakfast the kids got all dressed up (the girls in their dresses I whipped out the night before) for the 3rd Annual Adair Village Parade. Last year Jordyn was the beautiful Miss Adair but with the sale of the Porsche we were left without a convertible to ride in, Boo-hoo. So Aaron had to make it even more spectacular and decided to build a float. The 2009 Adair Rodeo. Jordyn was the Beautiful Rodeo Queen, Jackson the Bull Riding Champ, Lucy the Junior Princess and Vaughn bounced along on his Rody Horse loving every minute of it. We had a lot of fun waving to the small crowds and tossing candy, some of which ended up in our mouths instead of in the hands of the onlookers. The parade was led by the new Chief of Police of Adair Village, followed by the childrens bicycle group, three floats and the Adair volunteer fire department trucks. Jordyn was dissapointed that there were no horses this year. Someday we will have to do something about that for our horse-crazy cowgirl.
From the parade we went to a birthday party for Jake (a nephew/cousin) at the park. Uncle JJ introduced all the children to Red Rover. Even after the clotheslining, flipping over, falling down, jerked arms and nearly dislocated elbow everyone seemed to enjoy the game and wanted to play again sometime.

We wrapped up the night with foreworks in downtown Corvallis, a long standing tradition. Out with a Bang.

I appreciate so much all the work that went into that great presentation! I've seen it and seen it again and then shared it. THe dresses were darling! Did you ever think last Dec. that the flatbed would be a float in a few months? Ha.

hi dudes. I'm honestly into shoes and I had been looking as far as something that meticulous model. The prices as regards the boots are around 170 bucks on every site. But finally I base this site selling them as a remedy for half price. I exceptionally like these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will definetly purchase them. what can you tell me about these?
