MY HAPPY PLACE

Have you ever had one of those days in which you could go drown yourself in a bottle? Well I don't drink and never will I, but I admit...life can be viscous. It can just kick ya right in the face.
Thankfully, I have a lot of good things that still keep life all "chill" if you will.
ALLOW ME TO INDULDGE UPON THEM.
Meet my baby...not Charly bug...my other baby. She is a CRF230F. I must take a moment of silence for this sweet cherry of a ride..........ANYWHO, this girl has gotten me through some pretty darn lonely times. I rode her religously...even up till the day I delivered Charly. She soothes me needless to say. My husband bought me this as the other part of my engangement. I asked for something I could play with instead of a bigger ring...I couldn't handle a rock that I stared at...I needed some POWER!!! I'm imature.
The other day, I was sick of bein in the house. Ben was fixin on the dirt bike and asked if I needed to take a spin. I was on that baby in 2 seconds flat--pretty fast for me--I must say everyone needs a stress release....here is mine.


Here are my two dogs, Bo and Annie. They are living with Grandpa Tippetts for the mean time until we can keep them with us. We just have to find a place to put them. BUT, they are seriously the coolest dogs. Annie licks you to death and Bo will play catch for hours.
I miss them so much it pains me. In the words of Wayne Cambell....they will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine.
BO
ANNIE
Charlize is a life saver. She gave me such purpose in this life it ain't even funny.

THAT IS A CUTE BUTT!
This is what life is all about....FAMILY. I am so happy to have a wonderful husband and daughter to live my days with. I know this sounds insane, but I CAN NOT WAIT FOR MORE KIDS! They are a hoot!
Here is the queen bee herself. The "fam" and I had an outing outside of Pocatello by Pebble Creek I do believe. This is the first camp fire we sat around this summer. Idaho has a lot longer summers than Pinedale. Pinedale has 10 months of crap, and 2 months of amazing.


HERE IS MY PRIDE AND JOY! Since she has become more animated, I find myself with a camera in hand all the time. I thought Ben was a camera junky, but I think I got him beat now.

Daddy's Touch

HOW BEN BECAME A SOFTY

Ben is an insane adrenaline junky. Besides spending time with Charly and I, he is always looking for time to go ride dirt bikes or snowmobiles. Thats cool and all, but when you have rolled my brothers snowmobile, jumped off cornice's, climbed hills that only a mountain goat could have, and started two dirt bikes on fire...well then you have no other choice but to buy life insurance.


So here are some pictures of Ben doin when he does best--riding dirt bikes, snowmobiles, and oh yes...burping our sweet little Charly bug. Since she was born, she will only burp for her dad. What can I say, he has the "Daddy's touch." I know my pa did...sorry mom.


Enjoy these pictures of when Ben and I used to go out and do stuff!
