Yesterday we went to "Big Wienie Day" at Buffalo Wild Wings to see if we could win an OU grill tailgate trailer. We didn't win, but Jack got to meet Rumble the Bison, the mascot for the OKC Thunder, and some Thunder girls. He really liked Rumble and gave him numerous high-fives and followed him around for awhile. We all had fun and got to eat some free hot dogs while we were there.

New Car!

As most of y'all know, Preston had an accident in the Acadia a couple months ago. For those of you that didn't know, he is okay, the Acadia is not. It was suppose to be fixable and ready for us around the first of August, but instead of being ready the body shop found a problem with the frame and the insurance company deemed it a total loss. So, for about three weeks now Preston and I have been shopping for another vehicle. We came across this one at a dealer in the Dallas area and decided it was too good of a deal to pass up, plus we really liked it. So here it is:

Freedom Rodeo 2009

Look Grandpa!

Forget the beer,

Dr. Pepper is here!

Watching Bull Riding

Ole! Jack threw his hat into the arena.

Watching the calf scramble

Cheese it up, Jack!

Jack really liked the clowns, this one handed him his hat back after he threw it in the arena.

Last Minute Vacation

We decided last week that we needed a vacation, so we went to South Fork, CO this week and camped with Papa and Meme. Preston roughed it in the tent and just about froze. Jack and I stayed in the camper. The Farrow's were also there visiting. We had a great time and are glad we went.
