Yesterday, our family went to the Puyallup Fair. My Mom and Dad always come with. For the past two years, the visit has been limited. I have either been on chemo OR I was going to start chemo the next day. This year, there was no chemo in site. My energy to very good and we stayed strong full on for six hours which is a lot for Nolan! But that isn't what I am posting about today. Today I am posting about my boys. Both Nolan and Mason did Mutton Bustin'. Now, for those of you that don't know what that is, it is where they put kids 6 and under on the back of a sheep (mutton) with a hockey helmet and steel vest. For more info, go to muttonbustinnow.com. Well, both, yes BOTH, my boys did it this year and ONE was the round champ. Mason. He held onto that sheep for the longest and jumped up afterward like a rabbit. He beat the 5 and 6 year olds, he qualified for the championships on the last day of the fair AND for the FINALS in Fresno, CA. Today, we went to Renton Western Wear and we ordered a belt to go with that GIGANTIC belt buckle. Nolan was no push over, but lets face it HE IS TWO!!!! I am impressed he got on. He rode well, and cried when he fell off. It wasn't because he was hurt. He was mad that he fell off!!! Mason was an amazing sport about the whole thing. He clapped for others and just stood there a little stunned at everything that was happening. I was proud, a little stupefied, and thankful for that moment. Feelin' good and a proud mama - nothing better than that!!! Now, I have to check airline prices to Fresno.. Enjoy the sun!!! Ang P.S. Yes, they are in matching outfits and those are cowboy boots!!!! The shirt says "Mom's little buckaroo".

Congratulations Mason! Keep up the good Job and your Mom can accumulate those frequent flyer miles. Although your young Mason you have given Mom a buttons busting moment of sheer pride. Good for you!! love pat&mag
Well my stars and a possum dog!!!! Who knew you were a raisin cow pokes...or mutton busters. What is the date of the "Nationals"' and will you be posting the video?? I can't wait to tell my fifth grade students. They will absolutely love this.
Please tell Mason that auntie jane thinks he is "tenacious"...which is a big word for a great mutton buster. Love Jane
I believe them boys got Woolite in'ere veins. OK OK OK... I'll stop now. I am just really proud of these two little guys and their pumpkin hurlin mama (it is getting close to that time of year too, isn't it). You always find the best ways to have great fun. You guys are going to wind up living on a ranch....with a bunk house where aunts can come and play cowgirl. I'm done now. Jane
Please tell Mason "Good job, I'm proud of you!" from Teacher Susan. Let him know I love him, miss him, and to please come by the school sometime and visit me. I'm so thrilled about what's happening in your lives and for all the answered prayer. Lots of Love!
Dear God, I am busting a gut over this gem of a story. You people are wacky . . . and wonderful.

There's a joke in there for his future girlfriends about Mason and sheep . . . Better save that belt buckle!
Sorry to hear about your cancer. With your positive attitude and spirit I know everything will be fine.
My son also won a "Go Round" at the Puyallup fair. I was unaware that that meant that they already qualified for the nationals in Fresno. Anyone who wins a "Go Round" can go to Fresno? My son will be so excited if that is the case. Please let me know. I have tried contacting Tommy G's with no response.
