First Day of Preschool

Whitney had her first day of preschool yesterday.  I feel I usually am on top of things, but not so much this time.  I thought she started on September 8, but after checking over the weekend found it was September 2!!!!  She was excited to go a week early since she has been a bit bored without her sisters around.

 She was very excited to let me know she was moved upstairs to be in the Dolphin group this year!!!!
The dinner conversation was pretty funny.....The girls were discussing when Whitney would be at their school next year.  Kaylee has already asked the bus monitor if she can sit with Whitney on the bus!

The Bigs had a free dress day today.  
Macy wanted to look like Kaylee:  
South Dakota shirt....check
denim shorts.....check 
side pony.....check

Whitney Grace is 3!!!!

Today, our baby is 3, and we remember Great Grandma Marnie's birthday too!!!!
She is sweet, sassy, stubborn, sly, special, social, smart and oh SO many other things!!!!
Not a day goes by that she doesn't make me laugh---and some days she makes me want to cry!!!
She looks up to her big sisters and wants to be just like them......And they WANT HER to be around them!
Our family wouldn't be complete without her!

 This little girl has our family wrapped around her little finger!!!!
Life is Good with Whitney Grace!

3 Fun Nights

The last night in Buffalo, we had an adults only night.  We did a tour of the town!
Stop 1----PBR on tap….the boys' favorite!
Stop 2:  Dinner at Winchester 
The guys loved the prime rib and continued to talk about it for days!!!

 Stop 3: The Outback

 Stop 4:  The Occidental Hotel and Saloon
The TV series Longmire is based on Craig Johnson's(from Buffalo) books. 
 Johnson’s mystery series, set in Buffalo (near Sheridan, Wyo.) and featuring the Busy Bee CafĂ©, where Walt Longmire often drops by to have “the usual,” deals with the realities of life, love and crime in the remote regions of the American West.
 Last Stop of the night…Some how the auto focus was switched to manual, but it kind of shows how by the end of the night things were a bit blurry!!!
 The next night, we stayed with my cousin in North Platte on our way back to Omaha.  It was great to see everyone again and the kids loved running around and being crazy!

 After dropping off the RV in Omaha, we quickly got to Boone for a fun night of fun with Justin's family.
 The girls always love softball on the farm!

 Kids did crafts, while adults did a wine tasting----a win, win situation!!!
Life is Good with friends and family!
