The weekend is packed full of fun. First of all, we stay in Muleshoe with Zach's family which is always a blast! W & L's aunts, uncles & grandparents love to play with them and show them off, so it ends up being a very relaxing time for me.
On Saturday morning there is a big parade with all the community businesses and reunion classes. Then there's a big carnival thing in the city park. That is all a bunch of fun, but our MOST favorite thing about BTD weekend is the bard dance! The lovely Mayfield family (who I know read this blog but have never commented.....hint hint) are gracious enough to clean out their barn, invite the whole panhandle of Texas, get a DJ, hang up fun lights, and dance the night away! We always have a blast two stepping with our boots on, eatin' some good grub, and catching up with old friends. It's crazy to see how much the boys have grown since last year's BTD. Some pictures were put on Erin's blog, but here are some more!
probably my favorite family picture of us recently
Heather & cowboy Will
Shelley, Levi, me, Gini, Heth, Will & Cori
Uncle Ben & cowboy Levi
Zach & me trying to improve our dancing skills
Levi looks all American in this one. I could just gobble him up!
I was going to drive back to Abilene with the boys because Zach left for Trek from Muleshoe. Instead, Papa Doc flew us home...which was awesome! It cut the travel time in half, and the boys LOVED getting to 'fly' the airplane.
Will learning the ropes from Co-Pilot Heather. He'll be ready for his solo flight in no time!
I'm not sure what's going through Levi's head in this one, but it cracks me up every time I see it! He looks a little unsure of the whole situation...We had a great weekend at BTD 08, and we are looking forward to next year already!
On a completely different note, Zach made it home Saturday night from Trek. He had a blast, and was completely surprised by my 'While You Were Out'. I redecorated our master bedroom and the hallway! I will post pics soon.
