We had some visitors over the last week. Tyler’s cousins Lane and Erickson came up from Texas to visit family, run around on the farm and revisit memories.

Erickson and Lane both spent many summers in Wheatland. Erickson even lived here and went to school for a year or two. He’s a little older than Tyler and had lots of memories of the antics they got into as youngsters on the farm. Because of Erickson, I learned that Tyler had a coon-skin cap and his dirt bike once caught his leg on fire. Just when I thought I knew everything about my husband, then awesome stories like that resurface. I love family.

Lane has spent many summers in Wheatland, including the summer of our first year of marriage. He’s a great kid who loves the farm and wants to be an Air Force pilot. We’ll keep him.

While Lane was here, my friend Stephanie with Cowgirl Graphics took his senior pictures. She did an awesome job and we had so much fun running to different locations and making Lane smile 5,123 times.

We also spent the weekend with Tyler’s sister, brother-in-law and niece at Keyhole Reservoir in NE Wyoming. They put Jake’s boat to good use and camped out. Tyler and I spent the day on the lake Saturday, then got a hotel in Rapid City (Let’s just say I wasn’t terribly excited about camping) and went to Cabela’s on Sunday. We drove back to Gillette and visited with Sunni, Jake and Skye for the rest of the day and then Tyler, Lane, Erickson and I drove back to Wheatland.

The guys left today. Lane starts his Senior Year soon and Erickson’s employers want him back.

God Bless You & American Agriculture,


I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done. I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people. – Psalm 52:9
