(last 3rd i got)

im currently listening to music, texting my bestie, and working on a calendar to keep track of when the goats are in heat. yay ;)


im really kinda depressed on what i got for my pictures at the fair.. i dont get the judging sometimes.. some things in the hall i work at got 1st that i didnt think deserved it.. others didnt place at all and your like really?? its weird..

a small vacation..

**so sorry at how late this is!! but enjoy!! :)**

This last weeked we went down to Yoesmite National Park. our main reason for going was to meet up with friends of ours from Georgia that drove from Florida to California!

We arrived on Thursday, and i was trying to get a small cell phone reciption at our hotel... guess who didn't get serivce?? yup.. a whole weekend no cell phone, and no wifi since i was going to pay $.09 a minute for wifi... and i survived... i know, a major shock!

I still used my phone for time and games and photos, sadly no facebook, texting, or instagram all the way out there :/ but omgosh it was nice to disconnect! It was GORGEOUS!

(these pictures are in no particular order.. just as a warning :)

Get ready for major pictures, because i took over a 100 with the camera and quite a few with my phone!
on our way over to the river across our hotel, we walked a small path and there were more than 1 of these.  i love these little whatever there called things :) i want one in my backyard one day i think!

we stopped at a little river after lunch and there were more rapids, but a calm spot a few steps away were we chilled out and the kids through rocks into the river :)
