Fathers Day !

I am so thankful for my Dad and to Honor him on Fathers Day! He was and is a awesome Dad!  he always worked very hard to provide for his family! still working to this day! He had 3 boys and then I came along...I wonder if he ever wished I was a girly-girl??? since I was his only daughter. But nope he got a tom-boy girl and loved me just how I was.  The smell of "skin bracer" reminds me of him and growing up he smoked and so every now and then when I am outside and get a smell of cigarette smoke it is actually a comfort smell! ( I know...weird) but it is! It just means I have good childhood memories and to me it is a good smell. Now I will add that I am thankful he quit smoking! :-)

He always took us camping! I remember when he would go somewhere and I would ask where...He would say " to see a man about a horse" being little enough I really thought he might come home with one!! But nope he didn't. Then in highschool he DID ! He came home with 2 horses! I LOVED it ! I know he got them for him but I just felt they were for me!!  LOL  He taught me what hard work was and how to be a good parent!!!  He has also been a super great Grandpa to all his grandchildren! I am so grateful to have such a good DAD and for his great example!

My Father-in-law Dave! We miss him for he has been gone about 20 years already. He was a big hugger...I smell "Old Spice" and it reminds me of him. He was my Pastor and he told his son Dan to check out that "horse lady" (me) that lived up on that mountain. So Dan did, and here we are!  He was a great Grandpa to Isaac and Luke but never got to meet Jerid. But we know in heaven we will see him again one day!! I am thankful for his wonderful example!

Happy Fathers Day!

The Beard

Dan always wonders why I never like when he shaves his beard off...I tell him at least keep some facial hair like a goatee or a mustache or just a beard...just some facial hair at least! His beard caught my eye 27 years ago and to this day I prefer him to have it! My excuse!????

When I was little and I mean little I liked Grizzly Adams!

Edwards  ( not so cute but it's the beard!) lol

And Johnathon! 
I guess you would say God made me that way!
So Dan,  please keep your beard!
I like it !

Passenger pick-up

Went to pick Luke and Allison up from the airport last night! Called before and flight had been delayed so I knew to go later! Wow! I am smart to call first right!? got there at 10pm drove around the passenger pick-up and back to the terminal several times.  No, Luke and Allison....decided to park and go in.  Went in and looked around the baggage claim and pick-up this time there wasn't even any baggage left ! Weird.....asked around and no-one could help, not even the information one could check anything for me! Well...Jerid came with me and I am super glad because parking garages are very scary at night! So I decided to go back to the car and check the flight info again....I had everything right but............. the day!!! So, tonight I get to go again! hahahaha hopefully come home with some kids this time! 
I know. I am an air-head.  Just push me out on an iceberg now! I am losing it!!!

And by the way this horse is very creepy! Piercing red eyes! Doesn't say "Welcome to Denver" very well if you ask me!
Also if you are coming out this way I would be glad to pickyou up, I know exactly what I am doing and exactly where to go! After last night I have plenty of experience!!  Really I do.
