How the West Was Won

For the first time in months, both Steve and I had Saturday free. We celebrated by heading deep into the old West, to the Gene Autry Museum of the American West at Griffith Park.

Gene Autry MuseumLiam’s favorite part was the horse ride. giddy up

He cried when we took him off.

It was just a saddle next to a mural and in front of a blue screen.

We loved being on tv.

William enjoyed walking around the Old West.The old west

He did not enjoy jail. Or the actual exhibits, for that matter.


After lunch, William got to ride a full-size horse replica, complete with cowboy gear. I had to act fast to get even the hat on Little Quickdraw, here, though.quick draw

Cowboy Billy came to the rescue. Fastest gun in the West.

Since I don’t get many evenings off, we took advantage of a beautiful day last week and rode our bikes to central park. Liam was very busy working in the sand.Important work Sand Castles Steve gets off early on Fridays, so we repeated our ride on Friday for the Healthy RC fair.


We had to keep this little boy on a tight leash since he loves to run EVERYWHERE.

Liam had a great time.DSCN2328 We got some awesome swag (the rest of the candy not pictured because it was eaten).

Makes me love our life. It’s pretty sweet sometimes. All I gotta do now is figure out how to stop working evenings and weekends and it would be perfect.
