First Boss Lady Campout of 2012! Yeehaw

The first campout of 2012 was a success! We headed to central Utah's Sanpete County for a little cow wrestling and camping in the fresh air. 
The Boss Lady debuted in style! She is now 42 years old, bless her heart. She is good as ever despite a few functional flaws...ahem - the heater wouldn't light. It was a little tense and a little bit chilly the first night, but Mr. V will take care of that later. She also needs a new water tank...those little flecks of rust when you wash your hands are just not glamorous! It's not her fault, she has aged gracefully and every girl needs a little work done at some point!

My good friend James from Flowers on Main in Lehi, Utah made up some gorgeous flowers in our collection of tea pots.  Thanks James!

Now enough about the trailer... on to the fun we had on the farm! It's spring and that means babies! I don't know about you, but I think little calves are the sweetest. So let the fun begin! 
Look at these cute cowboys all ready for the rodeo! We love this time of year because we get to camp with cousins Tate, Whit and Reese. This year GG and Grandpa Lynn came along too!
These little cowboys waited patiently until it was time to run the calves into the chute.  They are quite the little ranchers!
Here they come! 
Move on down cows!  
Reese and Kelli - My two favorite Cowgirls
This little sweetheart is my favorite this year - I think I'll name her Ms. Pearl

The kids' pick is this little brownie calf - only three days old and gentle as can be. 

We played hard and by the time we hit the hay, all was quiet on the farm...even the three little piggies.


  1. Cute pictures Steph, THanks for all your good cookin! It was a fun time!!!

  2. i have tried to comment on this 3 times and it keeps kicking me out! Boo! well it all looks just fabulous! The Boss Lady is such a Beaut! I hope to join in the fun of one of your campouts sometime soon! This weekend looks picture perfect! I bet Ree Drummond would be jealous! Love you!

  3. I just looked at it again and saw all of the beautiful fresh flowers! So cutE!

  4. This is probably a stupid question, but are the beds actually twin size or smaller? We have a 1971 that we just got.

    1. Hi Big Tex! This bed is almost a full. Not quite a double, but not a twin either. We tried to find a replacement mattress to no avail. So we just covered the old one in a full encased mattress pad followed by a feather bed and then our sheets. It does the trick and is actually quick comfy! I would love to see pictures of your new trailer. What are your plans for her?
