You know you're in a blogging slump when...

  • You neglect to do a birthday post for your hubby (Happy belated Birthday Jon, I love you!)
  • you post your daughters birthday pics four months late
  • you look at your blog reader thingamabob and find out you have almost a thousand posts to catch up on. Yikes!
  • You spend more time on Facebook than on your blog
Ok, random....Have you seen the Snickers commercial with Roseanne Barr???? I freaking LOVE it! Cracks me up every time.

How I'm spending my free time

The nice thing about being out of work is that now I have my weekends free to spend time with my family.
Last Saturday we drove out to Bonnie Springs Ranch.
It was originally built in 1843 as a stopover for wagon trains going to California.
Since 1952 it's been used as a tourist attraction.
It's pretty cool that we have this here, it's fun to walk through the little town, which is definitley a bit rundown.

Scenery of Red Rock Canyon on the drive out.

They have a fun little train that takes you from the parking lot to the little town.

Remnd me not to wear this shirt again. Not very flattering....

They have a funny little show they do in the old saloon. Very silly, very bad acting, but fun.

They put on a shootout and hanging as well.
...some questionable potty humor during which they blew up the outhouse.

Pretty nice guys. The boys didn't want to get in the picture thought. :(

I need one of these at home.....

They have a small non profit petting zoo as well.

These horses were gorgeous!

 a cute little prairie dog.

 A Canadian Lynx.

 A buffalo. I'm curious as to how they got this guy and also why one horn points up and the other down?

They have more animals which include emu's, llama's, wolves (gorgeous! Jon wasn't able to get a picture for some reason), rabbits, and goats of course.

 Wild burrows which roam around the area outside the ranch.

 I love Joshua trees. They're just so unusual.

 On our way out of  "town".
The End

The sweetest things

Little boys who love to help.....
 I threw the towels on the sofa, and they got busy. I didn't even have to ask them to help. Wish their sisters would take a lesson!

 Valentine decorations.

Since everyone else seems to be posting theirs, thought I'd follow along.

I made these the other day. I think the S's are upside down. How can you tell?
 And my exclamation point is crooked on this one. Oh well.

This one says it all....

Pure bliss!
