Again we traveled to Estes Park to the Craig Reunion. We enjoyed the beautiful mountains, playing wiffleball, mini golf with the pro grandma, swimming, and an awesome talent show.

Then, for another few more days we continued our "out west" adventure to Laramie, Wyoming to this beautiful log home.  We grilled, relaxed, played tetherball, hiked, and enjoyed awesome weather... perfect cool, coffee, drinking mornings and no aircondictioning needed in the afternoons. 
One day we drove up into the mountains to Albany Lodge and rode ATV's on trails... amazing beauty, jealous of the kayaker, scary HUGE rock, fantastic experience, LOVE THIS COUNRTY!!!

Halfpint and Daisy performed for the first '"real" rodeo.  They teamed up with the Sara, Sara, and Dally, as the Shooting Star Trick Riders.  A video of the performance in on you tube, if you search Shooting Star Tick Riders.  What a perfect day to make a dream come true! Happy 11th Birthday Halfpint, what a beautiful one foot fly-way!!!
