Happy Birthday Dad

Happy Birday!!!
Thats my dad!!

Today is the old mans birthday and and i just wanted to wish him a happy Birthday! I hope you have a great birthday dad! My dad is one awesome guy and i love him so much. He is so kind to everybody and everybody thinks he is their best friend. He is so lovable, likable and kind hearted, and i never met a nicer person then my dad. He is a very good example to stratton and I and is always keeping us laughing. I am definitely my dad favorite child because i was a big time daddy's girl and the only child to ever like him better then my mom :) and I always kept his belly button clean i know weird but i thought that was my job. My dad and i would always have so much fun joking around with each other i would climb all over him and he would call me a little fly and then i would call him a no neck, hairy dog, comb over and we would just laugh and laugh. I am so grateful for my dad and all that he does for me and the good example he is and i hope you have a happy birthday old man.

It was a lot of fun and my mom brought my camera so now i can post some picture woohoo, and we just want to tell our families we love them so much and thanks so much for all the support they give us we are two lucky kids to have the best families ever!

Late Show

Well I have not posted in a long time. Stratton and I have been super busy with basketball and school and more basketball but tonight was the Adams State late show and it's just a thing were they introducing our teams and having some competitions. So of course they thought it would be cool to have Statton and me go against each other in the three point contest. Stratton's coach was talking so much crap to me today how Stratton was going to beat me but lets just say i was feeling pretty lucky tonight and killed Stratton 20-10 haha it was pretty funny but lots of fun to get out and play but the coolest thing was when the introduced us all individually they had a spot light on you and stratton did a back flip it was awesome i didn't even know he could do that he is pretty amazing and I love the all the fun we have together, living far away from home its amazing how much our relationship has grown and how much we depend on each other. Well this is what has been going on in the Solomons home maybe next time i will have picture when my wonderful mom sends me my camera that i left in snowflake.

Well today Stratton tried out for the boys basketball team and well he MADE IT!!!! I am really proud of him and all his hard work. He is my hero he works hard and never complains maybe because i don't give him time but he really is the best. It will be lots of fun we travel together on the bus, but both of our coach's said we can't sit by each other even though we are married. So get ready and pack your bags and come watch some Grizz Basketball because it's a family party!! Congrats Stratton I love you so much!!!!

Fun with Fam

I will have more picture but I left my camera in my parents car so these are the picture Stratton took off his phone.

This weekend was a great weekend. We had our first week of school and some hard conditioning in practice so nothing was better then hanging out with my parents and Gunner. They got here Friday and we just showed them around the pretty town of Alamosa haha. Then on Saturday we woke up and went to Durango the drive was really pretty my family said but i have the hardest time staying awake in the car i dont know what it is, maybe that rocking feeling or something but anyways we got there and Gunner, Stratton and I went Kayaking it was pretty fun the rapids where crazy jk but it was lots of fun. Then we went to this Chuck Wagon Stake house it was cool, i thought it was going to be lame cowboy want to be singers but it was pretty funny Stratton wants to be a cowboy now. Then we drove all the way back to Alamosa because every hotel was booked crazy. Then the next day we went on a picnic around Chama and wow BEAutiful and Gunner got out in the river he is a little nature boy and a fun, fun, kid he is just fun to be around because whatever we do he loves it haha. Then all my dad wanted to do was ride the train but we keep missing them darn but he did get to check the trains out. So this was our great weekend with my family I love them so much. I for sure have the best family in the world

Back To Colorado

Well its always so hard to leave family because our family spoils us so much. We are so grateful for our families they both do so much its amazing we ever even leave. Thanks to my family for letting us stay and bum every meal my mom is amazing i don't know how she keeps up with cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner is something i always expect to just be on the table all the time but now that i have to cook wow mom your amazing nothing better then hanging out with my mom all day and waiting for Gunner to come home for school to have somebody to tease and to find out what dumb thing my dad has next on his mind. It's also fun to hang out with my sister and Cooper, Marti is always looking out for me and making sweet things for my house. Then Strattons family spoils us with more then we deserve we where thinking of trading in the little blue truck for a four wheel drive because we thought we might need it in Colorado and thanks to Brent he hooked us up with a beautiful truck. What a blessing family is they are so supportive and want the best for us all the time what would Stratton and I do without our family they are the best.

The little Gun Man

Well my little brother survived heart surgery he is a very tough kid and we love him so much. We are so thankful for the many blessings in our life and for my little brother to be ok. I don't know what our family would do with out Gunner he is our entertainment he always has everybody laughing. He has been the best little brother and i love him to death. My parents have also been really strong you can't even imagine what my mom has gone through to think her little boy died in her arms would be the worse feeling ever, but my mom and dad are both super strong and are the best parents ever, true story. They have taught me so much and i love them to death. This is the little gun man taking a walk what a stud.

Zapata Falls

Stratton striking a pose and of course
when we got ready to take pictures
my camera was out of batteries so
we took these on Strattons phone

Today we decided to get to know the area a little. Stratton and I finally had a chance to get out of the gym and see what Colorado had to offer. We went to Zapata Falls it is about 30 miles out of Alamosa a short little hike about a half a mile to the falls then jumping from rock to rock trying not to get our feet wet, but no luck. It was very pretty and lots of fun to get out and enjoy nature haha. Probably the funniest thing on the hike when we asked this serious hiker lady how far the hike to the lake was. As she replied me and Stratton both noticed a little baggy she was holding with something interesting in it. I guess she did not want to leave anything behind and crapped in the bag!!!!! It was pretty funny as we followed behind her and the little blue bag.
