Parker, giving birth to 5 healthy and beautiful Redbone Coonhounds.
It is really incredible that God has equipped an animal like a dog to
be able to give birth on their own and take care of the pups. Truly
incredible. This is Parker's second go-round, but this time I was the
one at home with her.
Parker and her pups are safe and sound in their pen nursing away! I'll
post more pictures once they start moving around.

It’s about that time for all of the TV series to pick-up where they left off last fall. Tonight happens to be the season premiere of one of my favorite shows: The Biggest Loser.
This show sucks me in every season. I can’t help it! I will even admit that I’ve shed a tear or two during the show. I get attached to these contestants and to me it is truly amazing to see them lose all of that weight.
This season promises to bring even more excitement as one of last season’s contestants is returning! Daniel is a high school student who started last season weighing almost 400 pounds (perhaps over that mark). He lost a lot of weight last year, but being that big he still has a lot to lose, so he will be appearing this fall to continue on his quest to be the BL. BL also has a contestant who is the biggest female to ever be on the show.
Here’s to another wonderful season of BL. Until then, I’ll be counting the hours until 7:00 when it comes on!

celebrate the birthday of Trav's sweet mother, Judi.
We arrived late Friday night and even brought the rain with us. South
Texas is experiencing a huge drought right now so the grass and cows
were very happy to get some fresh water.
A good bit of our time on Saturday was spent filling the deer feeders
with fresh corn and setting the timers. Gotta make the deers happy!
Fun shots can be heard around us as many folks are taking part in dove
season, which just started last week.
It's been a fabulous weekend with the Riley clan. I even made a
homemade carrot cake for Judi. It's her favorite. This was a big deal
for me because I have a HUGE aversion for carrots. Huge. I've never
eaten one, nor will I but I think I earned some major brownie points
baking my MIL het fav cake. They say it tasted good, too!
Unfortunately the weekend is drawing to a close and we must head back
Looking forward to a 2.5 day work week ahead as my best friends
wedding is in San Antonio!

It’s that time of year…College Football!
This year has the possibility to be more thrilling and competitive for Baylor. We have the potential to make some great strides this fall and we get to start that adventure in 3 short days!
Travis and I will be attending several games this fall and cannot wait to cheer on the Bears to a victorious season.
Go Bears Go!
