Desert Babe

I love going to the desert with DG on the weekends and camping.  When we were dating we spent a ton of our time there, so I think that’s part of why I enjoy is so much now–there are so many happy memories.  The kids love going to the desert too.  They are kind of camp bums!  Now that I have EJ I don’t get to ride my horse or do anything too exciting with DG, but we made our own fun by going on drives and hikes.  I love the spring because there are baby calves–that’s primarily why DG is out there, to ride through the first calf heifers a couple times a day, making sure that they don’t have any trouble having their first calf.  Once a calf is born they will rope and tag it so that come branding time we know which group of cows that calf belongs to.  We also do a lot of driving around to check the ponds and make sure that the cows still have water.  This is the kind of stuff that I grew up doing with my dad, so I’m so glad my kids get to experience it too!

EJ LOVES to be forward facing in the Ergo. This is how I carried her for our hike. She enjoyed looking around and kicked her legs the whole time.
