i had a lovely family reunion in modesto this past weekend. i am hoping to post more about that later, but i told bryson i was going to bring him back a present. the perfect modesto present...red cowboy boots. we had such a great discussion about boys and cowboy boots with the many moms of sons at our reunion as well... i am looking forward to sharing stories of my own one day! when he opened them and put them on the first thing he said was, "Texas here I come"...then he told me we needed to go to the desert because sand won't get in his cowboy boots in the desert...i think i made a perfect match!
