Falls Park

Friday night we went to Sioux Falls to get some stuff at Menards for Jon to finish up a job and once we were done with that and ate we decided to take Trevor to Falls Park. We got there around 8pm so it was dark and all the lights where on and it was really nice, not sure if anyone has been there during the evening hours but it was worth it. Not to mention it was really nice out Friday evening.

New Gun Cabinet

Most of you know that I bought Jon an awesome gun cabinet when he came home from Iraq but since we have moved out of our last house we have had no way of getting into our new house (it does not fit down the stairs and is too big for upstairs). If you remember the way we got it into our last house we had to cut a door into the wall so we had a way of getting it back out. Once the basement was finished it looked like the door belonged there. Anyways in our new house Jon needed a place to put all of his guns and I wanted a place so they could be locked up. Well in our basement there was a space in the wall that the previous owner had put ugly shelves in so we took them out and Jon built a gun cabinet in there. I can not believe how good it turned out, Jon rocks at this stuff!!! We are waiting for the glass for the doors and we have to put trim on the bottom but otherwise it is all done. We have to dig his hunting decorative glasses out of storage to put on the shelves. He even put lights in it to shine down at the guns, pretty creative huh?

Cow Pie Bingo

Yesterday while I was eating lunch I asked a few of my employees that where sitting next to me how their weekend was and most of them just did the usual "alright". Then one of older ladies out of the blue says "well I played cow pie bingo on Saturday night" I stopped and looked at her and said "what did you say"? And sure enough I heard her right, she played cow pie bingo. Most of you are probably wondering what that is, well I will fill you in because I think it is hilarious.

The town of Arlington had their celebration last weekend and they blocked off main street and drew squares on the road with a number in each square and people can bet up to $5 on a square. You are betting on which square the cow will poop in first and the person who wins gets the whole jackpot which was around $200. She said the game took 2 hours before the cow did her business and then it started all over again......only in South Dakota!

Not much going on

This week as been pretty slow and I have not really had a lot to post about. I just picked Trevor up from school and it is going really good, he is 2 weeks in already. This week they started to have a letter of the week and of course it was A this week. Today he painted with apples and he loved it and managed to not get any on his clothes. The first couple of days at school he wet his pants because he was too scared to tell anyone and was just not used to the environment but now things are good and he has gone to the bathroom all week.

During the second week of October the class is taking a field trip to the pumpkin patch here in Brookings and Jon and I have signed up to be parent supervisor's so we are all looking forward to that, Treovr is looking forward to riding in the bus out there.

Jon is finishing up his gun cabinet that he has been working hard on and then I will share that with you but other wise it is work, school, eat and sleep this week. We have a big wedding this weekend with the groomsmen dinner tomorrow night and wedding Saturday so it will be a busy weekend. I hope everyone is having a good week!

In the Dog Kennel

Yesterday was nice enough to be outside for a while so while Jon was staining boards for his gun cabinet he is building Trevor was playing with his buddy Mydland and I was catching up on laundry in the house. I went outside to see if Trevor had to go to the bathroom and he was no where to be found and Jon was just laughing. Then I heard "mommy come here and find me" here Jon locked them both into the dog kennel because that is what Trevor wanted. What a crazy kid!

I think Trevor is having way more fun then Mydland!!

Trevor has this thing for shoes that I just can not figure out. He will wear mine around the house and just smile his ears off. The other night we went shopping and while I was not paying attention to him but looking at other stuff I turned around and he had taken his shoes off and put on some high heels and was going to start walking around in them. I almost died!! (Kelsi you know what I am talking about you where with) So when we were shopping I got a pair of new black boots since my old ones had seen better days and when we got home Trevor was going to take a bath so he was naked but decided to try on my boots first.

Jon is really going to be mad at me when he finds out I posted this, he was just shaking his head the whole time!

Wedding in Pierre

It is 8pm Monday night and this is the first time I have had any time to post our weekend happenings to my blog. We had a great weekend!!! We went out to Pierre to my cousin's wedding. I was excited for more then 1 reason, first was because I have never been to Pierre before and yes it is the capital of our state but I have had no reason to go there. Second I was excited to see all my cousins I have not seen in ages. On that note my cousin who was getting married Jon has only seen twice in the eight years we have been together (crazy I know). The other part to that is Jeanine (the bride) has a sister my age and I had not seen her in 10 YEARS, how crazy is that? I saw her last at my step grandpa's funeral 10 years ago and that is when I was 16 and then we went our own ways to college and she moved to Alaska and found a guy, got married and has lived there ever since. She now is happily married and has a 14 month old daughter. Jon got to meet her for the first time so that was awesome and overall it was great to see everyone again, the weekend just fly by. It was sad to say good bye since basically we where just getting started on knowing each other again but we have planned an all cousin reunion (Yes all 60 of us) for this coming summer in a cabin at KeyStone SD on a fun!

The wedding was very nice and very cowboy, I mean everything was cowboy to a T. The bridesmaids had nice dresses and wore cowboy boots, the groomsmen wore boots, hats and the whole nine yards. I was so busy talking with everyone I did not take as many pictures as I wanted too but did manage to get a few. So enjoy!
One more thing, since the church was right next to the capital I got to see that along with the governor's mansion and that was very cool.

This was the best picture I could get of the couple.
