Little Cowboys

The best feature of our new home is location -- close enough for many visits from the 3 grandkids who live nearby.
They occasionally enjoy doing chores in the barn.
Filling the Water Trough
Raking Hay

They like to pet the horses.
And of course they love to dress up in Grandma and Papa's old boots, hats, etc. and pretend they are cowboys.
The littlest one likes horses, too, even if her steed is kind of small.

Busy Summer

 Our two oldest grandkids flew out to visit without their parents, a first for us. 
We fished, hiked, checked out dinosaur bones, and visited the zoo with cousins.  The bird show at the zoo was impressive, with raptors swooping in right over our heads.  Afterward, the cousins had their picture taken with a bald eagle. 
On the drive back from a fishing expedition, Daisy enjoyed bonding with her boy.   
A few weeks later, our son was back with his whole family.  The cousins posed on a bridge. 
A hike in Albion Basin, near Alta Ski Resort, is a family favorite. 
The views and wildflowers are great. 
There are rocks to climb.
Some of the rocks have fossils. 
For an added treat, a little patch of snow remained for a short glissade.
We also had a special addition in June.  On a trip to visit the newest family member, we caught both our son and his daughter wearing Mona Lisa smiles.
