Ride Em’ Cowboy

There was a rodeo in town this weekend. My daughter rode a sheep last year and won 1st place (all the boys chickened out)!

This year my son decided he wanted a sheep trophy also, so off to the rodeo we wenthoping to bring home a trophy!

This is called Muttin Bustin’. The kids are given a score and the top 3 spots get a trophy and cash money! Here’s Turner:

Turner got a 77 with his ride, putting him in first place (for the moment).  Giant smile on his face, because he LOVED it so much!


Here is his cousin Caden, scoring a 72, putting him in 2nd (for a while).

By the end, Turner’s score held strong for a 2-way tie for 3rd place, and Caden with the 4 spot.


He had an awesome time and can’t wait to try it again!  Now he’s got a sheep trophy like his sister 🙂

Here’s his video

Travel Map

I have been wanting to do this ever since I saw it on Pinterest (forever ago). I’m not sure who I saw it from… but I’ve seen it out there a few times.

I love that we have pins to show where we have been together. We have RED pins for where Jason and I have been together, and BLUE for where we have been as a family.  We only counted places where we actually stopped and visited, not driving through.

It fits our travel theme sitting room quite nice. I have added some landscape photos from our travels around the map and other places in the room too.

I bought my map online and the cork board from Target for $10. I had to trim the map down about 1 1/2 inches on all sides, but it still came out great.
