A Potpourri: Giddy Up, Got My Creative Juices Flowing, Grass and Golf

*Giddy Up*
We attended a Cowboy Cookout on Friday night! It was a ward activity at our Bishop's house! It was loads of fun! Maisey was decked out in her cowgirl boots and hat, and brought her jump rope to rope her a cattle! She was devastated when we left her stick horse at home but got over it after causing quite the scene for 30 minutes!
Here she is learning how to rope!

And here's the fam! Yeehaw!

*Got My Creative Juices Flowing*

I told you I haven't done any projects or anything fun since Gage's birthday and I was having serious withdrawals, so I made this horse cake for the cowboy cookout. Maisey was my little helper!

We also made mini corn muffins!

And Angela's famous chocolate cake for my mom's friend! Friday was quite the baking day!

It has now been 4 weeks since we planted our grass! It was a jungle out there so Shaun and his dad mowed it this weekend. I didn't take any post-mowing pics, but I'm pretty pleased with how full our lawn is for only being 4 weeks!
We played in our Stake's golf tournament that is now called the Rick Olsen Memorial Golf Tournament because he started it way back in the early 90's. It was hot, I was EXHAUSTED, but we still had a great time!
The Maughan's totally carried the team! Tish was way better than she said she was! We had a lot of fun playing with them.

Then there was us, who didn't do too hot, and Shaun's dad is way in the background and he was pretty good!

I think we ended with +8 and it was only a 9-hole course! Hey, there's always next year!
