Taking you back . . . Last fall we visited San Diego and Disneyland.

Last fall (2008) Brent's brother, Boyd, and his wife, Sheena, suggested going on a trip to San Diego together. We jumped at the chance- we were ready to get away and have some fun, and some R & R! We spent a week in the San Diego area, and made the drive up to Disneyland. It was well worth it. Suzanne hadn't been to Disneyland since she was a kid, and this was Brent's first time! We had a blast, even as adults!! The next time we go, we hope to take our future family. While we were in San Diego, we also went to the San Diego Zoo, toured Old Town, and spent time down town. We also went to Coronado Island, and La Jolla beach among many other things. We had a GREAT time- thanks Boyd and Sheena!!

Down town San Diego, California.
The beach at Coronado Island. It was a bit of a cold, windy day so didn't get wet.

Branding Continued.

After branding the calves, the cows and calves are turned out onto spring pasture.

Spring Branding.

Each spring, usually in April and May, all of the cows and calves are gathered, and sorted. This kicks off the annual spring branding. The calves are branded and vaccinated, and paired with their mothers to be turned out on spring pasture. Brandings are one of Brent's all time favorite activities. Here are a few pictures.

We've finally joined the club!

We have given in and decided to start a blog, finally!! We hope this blog will give you some insight into our lives, and allow you to get to know us. Here are some pictures we recently had taken near our home. They were taken in the pasture where we keep our horses during the summer. It is gorgeous this time of year.
