Where is the summer going?!?!? It is crazy to think that school will be starting in less than a month! THANK goodness my little man isn't at that stage yet! Seems like after the fairs are over, then school goes! We took Braxton to the Madison fair to see the animals and even got to get into the rodeo...(thanks CJ for that!) Braxton LOVED his first rodeo!! We bought a camper a month ago or so, and have been camping EVERY weekend since! Brad loves taking off for the weekend and relaxing and Braxton loves to be outside, and I love seeing them two having SO MUCH FUN!!! Brad even got to go out on a boat fishing with some 'guy'. I think Brad thinks we need a boat now...:)
Without sounding CRAZY, we got to take Braxton deer hunting this past weekend! Yep, not only is there Christmas in July, now there's deer hunting! The deer are ruining the crops down in Red Cloud, so we went there to 'take care' of that! Disappointing...we only say LARGE bucks, and it was a "doe" weekend only:( It was pretty cool to take Braxton, and our niece Charli came, along with Chad. Taking a 4 year old and 1 year old hunting was pretty entertaining!!
I would have to say this summer has been a lot of 'dreams coming true' for Brad. He is REALLY enjoying have a little boy to follow him around...and in his footsteps for sure:) Enjoy the random photos....
Grandpa Bob and Braxton
He for some reason thinks he should stand and ride his 4 wheeler...

If you look closely, you will notice the 'car' and 'tractor' made it into the tub...
my picky little boy LOVES corn on the cob!!!!!!!!!!!!
he likes to have a nice 'mowed' area for camping:)

the nice man (whose name we do not know), not only took Brad fishing, he brought Peter over to play with Braxton:)
He lets me know when it's close to nap time...
Looks pretty comfy, eh?!?!?!?!

***HAPPY 4th OF JULY***
What a great weekend!! We got the camper out for the 2nd time...and WHAT FUN! We headed up to Calamus Friday-Sunday...Braxton has such a BLAST camping! He plays in the dirt...sits in mud puddles any chance he gets...and RUNS away at every given chance!!! ( Is this what people mean when they say, 'boys are busy'!?) We can't wait to go again this weekend!
We went to a party Sunday night to watch some fireworks...Braxton was pretty scared at first, but by the end, he was having a ball! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!
