A long fun filled week

Well the 77th annual Cimarron River Stampede Rodeo is now over.  Between work, the rodeo and having an awesome fun time reconnecting with Jennifer and the kids I am one worn out puppy!

The boys had fun riding the horses and finding all sorts of things to get into out here at the farm.  The rodeo was our largest yet between the spectators and the contestants.

Another great thing is that my niece was one of the rodeo queen candidates and she won it!  Dad would be so proud of her.  She will be an awesome representative for the rodeo for the next year.

My brother was able to make it down so we had most of the family at the rodeo when she was crowned.

As I sat back and watched my boys it struck me on how much they have grown up since the last time I have seen them.  That is something that I am fixing on a permanent basis.  They say as you grow older you grow wiser.  Well I can certainly agree to that!

We have been getting so much moisture here that its very unusual.  I wish I had the catchment system done I would be overflowing with water lol.  It has been a good thing but it sure makes work fun at times.

Well, that's all for now so I hope to put more on here later.


  1. Congratulations to your niece on winning rodeo queen! Yes, as we get older we do get much wiser..........especially when it comes to our kids.

    Glad to hear your getting moisture, were expecting more the next couple of days.

    1. Thank you it was awesome. The moisture has been a good thing.

  2. Things seem to be going well for you. Glad to hear it. Especially with family matters it can be tough keeping things on an even keel.

    1. Family matters always keeps it interesting I will say that.
