Good times

We had a super fun weekend.  The town had an event called Pioneer Days.  There were venders up and down the streets downtown, 50 teams having a cookoff.  They were cooking up BBQ, fajitas, chili, and deserts to be judged.  We were able to sample some amazing ribs, brisket, and chicken being cooked up by some friends we've met here.  It was amazing to say the least.  The day consisted of good food, good friends, bands, music, a little shopping and mutton bustin.  The kids enjoyed some bounce houses, rock climbing and water bubbles.  We all had a great time! 

It's amazing to see everyone gather downtown just to enjoy each other and have a good time.  It's pretty amazing how much you can enjoy when you leave the negativity and drama behind.  I'm thankful to be here.  I'm thankful to have my kids here. 

Bre ended her softball season last week.  She wasn't able to play her final game due to a minor concussion she got in a previous game.  They ended on a big win and she enjoyed every minute of it just being there with her friends and teamates. She loves it here and that makes me happy. :)

We're missing our family and good friends and will be heading up there in a couple of weeks!  Then some of our family will be coming here in May and for Memorial weekend!  I'm ready for some beach fun with the family! 

This is a picture of the shrimp we bought on the island last weekend.  We brought them home and Joey cleaned them up and he cooked them outside on the wok.  They were so good!  I can definitely see myself enjoying more of these!
We added some veggies and sausage to go along with it!  Soooo good!
