New Traditions....

My parents bought a bunch of land and built a new house after I left home... how convenient. This weekend our family was really able to enjoy some of the best things about living in the middle of nowhere outside of a small town- a bonfire and parade!!!

We started a new tradition this year we are hopeful to do year after year and add family and friends. We headed to Warrensburg for UCM Homecoming. It is a fun event the whole town gets excited about. They have a huge parade on Saturday morning with lots of marching bands and floats! It was a lot of fun and not too chilly!

Later in the day on Saturday we built a bonfire! My dad and Justin had trimmed back some trees so we needed to burn some brush. We were able to enjoy some smores also! Jackson was a little unsure of the goey marshmallows but he enjoy running around and throwing his marshmallow stick to the ground. The next project for my dad is to build an official "campfire pit" with logs around the bonfire circle and all. Justin has plans to go camping with Jackson one day! I have plans to sit and enjoy drinks while watching Justin try to figure out how to set up a tent and get Jackson to sleep in it all night- the future should be fun!

Of course, no trip to Warrensburg is complete without a tractor ride. Jackson enjoyed some tractor rides on the small tractor as it was just too wet for the big one. It was a fun weekend for sure. Lots to look forward to as we start new traditions!
