It took these pictures back in December (I think that’s when it was?) on a COLD morning up at the White Corrals. Lauren had spent the night (a Friday night ritual) and in the morning she and Hayes were off with Spence to vaccinate calves. By the time I got up there, they were freezing and trying to start a fire to keep warm. Spence took a little break and helped them get one going. It took a while because the wood was wet and by the time it really got going, I had to put Lauren and Chase in the truck to keep warm. Hayes did a few “Jack Be Nimble's” and we got the heck out of there. The poor guys (Spence, Trey, JC, and Doc Pew) had hours more of work to do, but they’re tougher than us. I did go get them hot chocolate and donuts from Circle K. :)
Lauren waiting for some heat.
Hayes sits while he waits.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire?????
We smelled just rosy when we got home.
Hayes and I decided to see if we could take a picture of his breath while we were waiting…it didn’t work. (Lauren and Chase are in the truck by this point)
A running start.
Almost looks like a Heisman pose. I’m trying to get a shot in which he’s right over the fire, but my camera stinks.
And he’s over.
There we go. Air Jordan right over the fire. Now, let’s go home!
