Cows and cowboys.

We had such a nice weekend at home.
 
Saturday morning was the NW Farm Supply jackpot show in town, and it was fun to watch the kids lead their steers in the ring.




 
That afternoon I braved Costco, and was rewarded with new planters for our newly poured concrete patio and a few odds and ends for the house.  I also picked up a flat of raspberries, and as I type these words they are all officially consumed.  :)
 
Sunday was one of our favorite days of the year - the annual Umatilla Cattlemens Father's Day picnic.  Karl and Jeanne hosted again up at their ranch in Ukiah, and it was the perfect day.


 
The guys fired delicious New York steaks on the grill, the ladies brought the most delicious salads and desserts and we all stuffed ourselves silly.  Hours of visiting and relaxing in our camp chairs ensued, and we didn't head home until close to 7:00 pm.









 
I always joke that the only way you can get a bunch of cattlemen to take the day off, is to guilt them into it by telling them that all of their friends are doing it.
 
:)
 
 
Hope you all had a nice weekend wherever you are, and that you're living the dream!
