Summer's almost over, and we haven't done anything yet!

School's started back up. (This doesn't affect me, except that more than half of my family works for school.) Leaves are changing. (Already?!?!) Nights are getting cold. Fall is here.

I pointed this out to BJ, and he looked sad and said, "I know, and we've hardly done anything!"


I bought myself new waders. I can't even call them new anymore - they've been all over the place.

A full solar eclipse. Complete with an eclipse party.

Riding. New trails. Old trails. All over.

Pride parade

Horse training workshops

Fixing the irrigation sprinklers.

Work. We added several new accounts this summer.

Wild Mustangs


Fishing from a float tube on Strawberry Reservoir

Fishing in Yellowstone National Park

Symphony Concert

Rodeos! (I am going to ride a saddle bronc like this someday!)

I shipped out thousands of pounds of ties...

Riding in the ferns.

Riding all over. This is one of my favorite pictures.

Riding. Camping. Fishing in Uinta Mountains.

Albino fish!

I wore a dress. All day long.

More fishing on Strawberry.
And these are just a few of the pictures of a few of the things...
To which BJ replied, "I guess what I'm saying is there's a whole lot more I want to do, and we're running out of time! But with fall comes a whole bunch of other things I love..."


  1. I can understand how BJ feels. I have done so much this summer, and yet there is so much I wanted to do that I didn't do. I don't want summer to end.

    1. There is never enough summer. Luckily, there's always next year. :)

  2. Nice summer! But you haven't taken me fishing yet! It needs to be a little fishing trip--I don't think I can handle anything too hardcore.

    1. K! I'm thinking Strawberry River. It's close to my house. Small. And fairly easy to catch fish. The other place I want to take you and Dad to is Pete's Hole/The Soup Bowl. It's two hours away from my house (an hour and a half from yours), but worth the trip!

  3. I haven't seen you wear a dress dress for years! It's super cute I like it! And I think you're summer has been pretty awesome I'm kinda jealous.

    1. :) Thanks! (And it has been an awesome summer. Kind of amazing really.)

  4. I'm totally famous. I was in the background of one of those pictures.

    1. True. AND I think you took the symphony one... but I'm not sure of that.
