The Great Out Doors

Over the weekend we went up to greens peak to camp. I love this time of year when all the leaves change colors! We enjoyed all the normal camp stuff. Cobbler, great food, four wheeler rides, camp smoke, shooting guns, good visits, card games(yes I married into a family that cheats at cards more than I do:-)) and my new favorite thing, squirrel hunting( who knew that it could be so fun!) and lots of relaxing! Devin and I missed place the keys to our camper and spent a few hours looking for them and a drive back up to the top of greens peak to make sure they didn't get kicked out! After all the searching we found them on the hook in the trailer where they belonged!!! Conner's little coat was hiding them haha gotta love that! Then we had a blow out on our trailer on the way home. But the boys had it fixed in no time. Thanks every body for the fun!

The leaves starting to turn red! This picture is for Grandma and Grandpa West

Conner already has such a mind of his own

Kids are never to old to get a good punch to the face by their father
This is Conner's favorite thing
We love shooting together
Fixing the Tire on the side of the road Devin has it figured out, he's letting his dad do all the work while he supervises!

One more thing, I know this post is getting so long but hey when you only post once a month... Conner had his first ER visit a couple of Sundays ago. I was out in the yard feeding the fish and all of a sudden he starts crying. When I got over to him blood was coming out of his toe and he had a huge blood blister on the bottom of his toe. Devin was already over in the ER so I drove the 1000 feet to the hospital to let Dev look at it. Needless to say him and all the nursers thought he needed to be checked out. I was think "I am not taking Conner to the ER for a blood blister" so I started to leave and Devin was standing at the the glass doors with disgusted look on his face, so I thought well I'll just call Conner's pediatrician. Needless to say the Doc thought I should take him in for xrays and stuff. So I unbuckled Conner and took him in. Devin was really getting upset with me at this point I believe he said something like this, "oh you'll bring him in when the Doc tells you to but you wont when I do" haha anyways Conner had xrays and they decided that he may have a fracture on his toe but it was to swollen to see, his growth plates where shifted, his big toe nail may fall off and the blood blister on the bottom of his toe will heal on its own. So they taped his little toes up sent us with some antibiotics and home we came. By that night he was walking and jumping around like normal! Thank heavens!
The Damage
Conner was taking really good care in the hospital be all the ER staff! Especially this one

I love camping this time of year also. It is always so pretty.We just got back today and it was so cold. It snowed on us and it was freezing. Good memories. I hope Conner is o.k. How crazy that we as moms dont see the little things that can turn big so fast.

Good Times for sure!! When we put Rattatulie (however you spell it) on in the camper, I took Conner's shoes and socks off and I saw his toe and I couldn't believe it. His poor little toe was all black and it looked so painful. It sure doesn't slow him down though!!! Anyway, thanks for the fun, I'm glad you guys found your keys and Next time we'll have to keep a better eye on the Pirates and maybe my dad won't get so lucky. Or play a game that we can definitly win cuz I hate losing!!
