Strawberries & Cream...
Oh how I will miss you until next summer. Oh how I will miss the whole week of fun activities and memories you bring every year without fail. However, my hips will not miss thee. Its a good thing its not Strawberry Days everyday because I might be a bit of an addict:)
One of my favorite lines from the Ricker, "I swear I'll be a carnie rat in the next life."
D lish and I at the Carnival. I LOVE the Carnival!!! I love riding all the spinning, twirling, rinky dink rides til' I wanna puke. The world's best, biggest, greasiest corn dogs. The people watching. The Carnie rats with small hands that smell like cabbage. It's the best.
All cowboy-ed up! Danny was so sad he wasn't able to be in the Rodeo this year. Both of his teammates dropped out. He said that if he cant get a team together next year he's going solo. Good luck with that Dan:)
The Smart brothers weren't able to do it because, as many of you know, Rangi really hurt his knee and just got off crutches. They all decided not to do it if Rangi couldn't. Hopefully next year they will all be able to. It makes the rodeo way more fun!
The only Smarts to be found in the Strawberry Day's Rodeo were those in the cash cow event. Rigdon, Livi, Lini, and AnnaBelle proudly represented by chasing the cow covered in cash.
No, this is not me.
CAN GUESS WHO THIS IS???
Hint* My red headed brothers like to steal my hair extensions.
Mmm! I love me a good set of twins.

A very angry cow giving a quick jab to Kyle, a kid on Grant's Milking team.
Then we all laid out under the stars talking til everyone fell asleep. Im pretty sure it wasn't til'
It was so fun sleeping out under the stars. I have never tried to take a photo of the stars, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I didn't have a tripod and the lens was open for roughly 30 seconds so its not as focused as I'd like. I am excited to play around with the tripod and the stars soon.
