Last weekend we went to Idaho for the State Sale. Brandon had decided to sell one of his heifers. As you can guess from this stupid economy, it was a pretty low sale and he didn't get nearly as much as we were hoping for.
The next day they had a Holstein convention in Twin Falls. I skipped out on the boring meetings ;) and just came for the luncheon where Brandon's parent's were receiving two very important awards!
Norma was awarded "Dairy Woman of the Year" which was very much deserved. I love how she really is a big part of their business and the way she raised her 8 children to be hard workers from a young age.
They showed this really neat video about Alan before he received his award..
2009 Master Breeder of the Year!

With 6 of their 8 childrenWe then spent Sunday in Burley with his parent's. Before we left to go home, Norma stocked us with fresh apples, a box of potatoes, homemade salsa and jam, canned food..and much more! It was sweet!
I am so blessed to have such wonderful In-laws! They are some of the kindest people I have ever met and are great examples to Brandon and I. (Not to mention the fact that they raised "such a good boy" as Norma likes to put it ;)
