Branding in Idaho

One of the favorite thing  the boys look forward to is going to Idaho to brand cows with their Grandpa, Uncles, Aunts and cousins.  The whole family went to Idaho to brand cows, I think everyone had a good time (maybe not the cows).
Most of the time the boys play around in the old house and go with Grandpa to make sure the fences are good and ready for the baby cows.  

Here is a picture of Dallin and Jack with a handful of testicles from the baby cows.  Only in Idaho, only on the farm!!!

Crazy Life

Life is crazy.  It seems that nothing ever changes except the pace of life.  All we ever do is try to keep up and hope for the best.  The shop/office is finally finished (except for the shop floor)and I have moved the office out of the house.  I seem to spend every waking moment on the phone, in the office and if not there working on trucks and trying to keep everyone happy(customers, vendors, employees), not the easiest job.  Kim and I grin and bear it and hope that it lets up a little or we finally hire someone to help run the business.  I guess I can't complain too much, business is good and for the most part we enjoy being self employed.
All of the kids are doing great and getting bigger by the day.  Presley started using the potty, not bad for a little 18 month old girl.  Though not potty trained she sure thinks it is a neat accomplishment everytime before she gets in the tub.  She is going to be a hand full and give her brothers a run for their money, she is quite the busy body.  One day she decided to get into the desk drawer and found a marker, here is the end result.
She is getting bigger though and loves the outdoors.
