My Parents Visited! And Other Bits and Pieces.

Thank you for all the concern and kind thoughts about Otto's little emergency room adventure, he is completely recovered! Other than a mention at breakfast the next morning about his arm being "broke, fix-it" and applying ice to his stuffed Brobee, he hasn't been slowed down in the slightest. In fact, he proved he had full function restored by 'helping' Meredith wiggle off her play mat...he pulled her off using her feet:-/ She thought it was great. I think these two stay up late plotting how to give Mom more gray hair. 
 See that pink on the carpet? That's permanent maker that Otto got a little carried away with while drawing. Thankfully I had bought a Groupon a few weeks ago to have our carpets cleaned. 
I need a high power cleaner like this! It only took about forty minutes from start to finish, crazy fast and they look so much better! The marker is almost completely gone, only noticeable if you know where to look. 
See? Nice and clean again!
Otto had a field day while the furniture was shifted around. He kept saying, "Excited! Running!", and then zooming around in circles. 
Sweet guy slept threw the actual cleaning, even though he tried his best to stay awake. Look at all those toys! 
My parents got to come spend the night. Otto and Meredith were thrilled to have them stay and throughly milked the fact that my parents have completely turned into grandparents. We went to the Stockyards to see the cattle drive and Otto was treated to a sno-cone, rode a steer, AND went on a pony ride! He strongly hinted that he would like a pair of cowboy boots, but thankfully my mom knew he had a pair at home;)
This steer's horns span six foot four inches!
Riding Sampson!
He was one happy boy! My Dad even took him for a ride in his truck. Otto couldn't tell me good-bye fast enough, he was out the door in a flash. 
We love it when family visits! Come back soon please!
