Two years ago today, my birthday, Jayne gave me the most amazing and precious gift.
Bridger Thomas Barnes, nicknamed "Bridger T." by my dad then re-nicknamed "Bridger T. Mountain Man" by Maizy who was trying to connect the dots between mountain man Jim Bridger and the name given her new baby brother.
I've got a phone full of Bridger pictures so this being our special day, I thought I'd give the bee talk a rest and highlight our little mountain man in action. He's really becoming accomplished at a variety of trades.
Wrangler- Leader of men, tamer of the wild:
General Contractor- Hauling rocks, mowing rocks, shop work with Daddy:
Archer- Training for a future Hunger Games
|(and official pollen taste tester)|
Proficient Garden Walker:
And of course, Mountain Man: leader of midwesterners through the alpine wilds.
I have little doubt, he'll someday carry me up those rugged slopes.
