Swamp Swimmin'

It was a very hot September Day so I thought it would be fun to take the dogs up to the pond in the top field and let them swim and play. My Mom is here so I threw the dogs in the truck and drove up. Here are the pictures of them at play! It is a large pond but a lot of  bullrushes this year so just played in the far end.

Mirk is always the loner :) He likes to have his own stick.

Die stick Die says Jenjen

Throw the stick.............

Time to kennel up, get in the truck! We have to go home.

Armstong IPE and Pro-Rodeo

I know this is shocking to some that I have posted twice in the span of a week! Don't get too used to it!
It's Fair Weekend with the 112th Anniversary of the Interior Provincial Exibition and Pro Rodeo.So off we went into Armstong today to visit with the family.  Len's niece, her husband and their 2 very grown up teenage boys that were visiting from Barrhead. His brother and wife were there from southern BC as well as his sister and her husband from Kelowna, and Len's Mom of course.
We did the usual fair thing, looked at all the animal barns, ran into people we knew and had great visits and ATE....and ate and ate. What is it about fairs that make you think you should eat all the junkfood that you turned down all year? 
Tonight was the Rodeo and we had pre purchased tickets so we all sat together. There was some good roping, riding and bullridin'
So here are some pictures from the Rodeo taken with the iphone so quality varies.
