Cowboy(ing) and Boutique(ing)

Yesterday Justin helped his dad get some cows loaded to go to the sale. I couldn't resist getting a few shots of them out there because they looked so cute. No cowboy attire needed here.... just a guy with his cap, two pair of sunglasses, and a BIG stick. The younger Ferguson guy had his sweat pants, boots, and fire department cap.

The cows didn't know the difference and cooperated for them. Shortly after being loaded, we were off to take them to the sale barn about an hour away.




Jonah and Glory rode with us. They enjoyed the ride thanks to the DVD player and Dora! Jonah kept wondering why we didn't buy more cows to load up and bring home with us.

Next, we stopped at McDonalds for the kids.



Back home I got this pic of Glory after her bath. She had just crawled up in the chair and covered herself up. This little cowgirl was pooped!


I can't fail to mention that earlier in the day I got to go shopping with Keelie for her birthday and in celebration of some other "goals" met. She found some really cute stuff at a great boutique. Although our lunch plans changed locations, it was still a nice meal. As we had just read on a greeting card there in the boutique, "it's not so much about the food on the table as who's in the chair!"

  2. Diana- What a neat post! I have one little grandd that will "tuck herself in" when she is tired...and I another that will prop her eyelids open with tape (not really) and insist she is NOT tired! Love the family day you had with your "cowboys".

    That is a great saying about the food on the table...Hugs- Diana

  5. I enjoyed your day too, and loved the finishing touch with the saying! If you don't mind, I will be using your quote in my daily talk/walk. I get ahold of a "good one" (quote) and start applying it. LOL!
