Weekend trip to Carey
2 weekends ago we went to Carey to visit the Alberdi's. We became friends with the Alberdi's years ago when we lived in Hailey and we've stayed in touch ever since. They invited us to come and attend the Blaine County Fair with them (which is essentially the Carey Fair, because not many Sun Valley residents are into raising a 4-H pig or showing off their blue ribbon jellies!) It was great spending time with their family and Joel and the kids experienced a first that weekend- attending a rodeo!
Taylor, and Reagan decided they wanted to participate, brave little souls, so we signed them up. As soon as Reagan saw about 20 kids get knocked into fences, trampled on, and generally busted by their mutton, he decided the deal was off. He felt viewing the spectacle from his ring side seat with his friend Stockton was exciting enough. Taylor was still ready and willing but he quickly found out that riding a calf was trickier than driving a tractor. Calves buck you off then kick you in the face!
I wish I could figure out how to intersperse my pictures throughout my blog and have captions on them, but right now, that is beyond my limited computer abilities. ...sigh... So the other pictures you see are of: Hailey with the pigs that Austin and Seneca raised this year, the beautiful barn Eric built, and Taylor's face stamped with a calf's signature.
