Over the 4th we spent time in Conrad, MT with my husband's family. Sometimes I forget how chaotic things can be when all five siblings, plus their children, plus spouses and boyfriends/girlfriends all get together. Needless to say, I was thankful for a drive in the mountains for a couple hours.
We had a nice time at the parade and Boden LOVED the firetrucks, tractors and candy!
Finally we spent the afternoon celebrating a special cousin's 1st birthday...
and watched a Rodeo. Boden already has dreams of saddle bronc riding. Every time a cowboy was bucked off - he would yell enthusiastically "'Nother One!". I would say he enjoyed the rodeo very much.
We thought we would be smart and that he would sleep on the drive home that evening... not the case. We have a sleep fighter. Will your child sleep anywhere and anytime? Please, share your secrets. We learned that the pack and play can no longer confine him, so we will take any help we can get for future reference.
