A Birthday Party (Family Photo Overload)

When one works for what we refer to around here as “the rich and famous” your time is not your own.  Lora’s birthday is in early August but the ranch where the rest of our family are employeed was packed with owner/guests at that time.  So, Laci and John (who is home on leave from Korea) chose Tuesday afternoon to celebrate Ms. Lora’s second birthday.  Lots of friends and family, lots of happy noise and lots of food.

A great party!

Wednesday we took a trip to Billings.  Haircut time for me and finally it was time for the Can-Am to have the safety recall done.  If you remember—around the end of June the Can-Am lost all steering while I was driving in the hayfield—we were just glad it happened on fairly flat ground and not some cliff in Moab!!  Seems it’s a problem with all Can-Am Commander side by sides manufactured in the years 2011-2013.

 IMG_0959One way to get a rig off the trailer, especially one that doesn’t steer!  When we loaded the CanAm at home, Michael drove it onto the trailer while I pushed the wheels in the right direction—nerve wracking! 

Today Michael helped me can 18 pints and 3 half pints of chokecherry syrup—YUM!  May have to have pancakes for breakfast tomorrow to sample the syrup!


  1. What a nice birthday:) Love Lora and Colt on the little sofa...too cute:) Brooks has the cutest smile. Let us know how the syrup was on the pancakes!!

  2. Yum!! That's for the syrup and the family!

  3. Remind me to ask for pancakes next winter.

  4. Looks like a delightful party for the whole family. Can't believe she's two already! You mean Michael doesn't have a fork lift? Can't believe it :-)

  5. It's always a treat to gather family around a celebration. The photos are very nice.
