Horsing Around

Here are some pictures and vid from today!

Good Golly we had fun today!

We took Cassie and Kona out to our place and let them run around and be horses for awhile.

Taylor rolled out the barrels and we found out just how fast Cassie is.

We knew she was a gaming horse... but holy smokes we didn't know just how talented she was. She'll do barrels by herself - totally pushbutton even with a kid on her back.

Giver her any idea that you want speed and she's off like a bullet. You'd never guess her age - and she sure looks like she's having fun. When I pulled her away from the barrels, she decided to slide me around the truck as fast as she could. You literally have to tuck your feet under her tummy to escape contact.

Got my Valentine's Day present a little late - a pretty Circle Y saddle... yeah, I'm a lucky girl.

I held Mr. Daddy to his promise that once we got the horses to our place he'd get some saddle time. It was only a couple minutes, but he got on Kona for a bit and looked like a regular rodeo cowboy.

Be Mine

This required MUCH patience for Mommy and Tristan...
Note the mussy hair - he's ALL boy!
Each letter got thrown at least 10 times... and the E is now an F.
I love his expressions - he is such a joy to have around.
Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

And the winner is...

Alright

I realize that I am immediately nominating myself for the "Worst Mother of the Year" Award


but go ahead



I dare you





I Double Dog dare you






to tell me this isn't the cutest kid you've ever seen in a clothes dryer?



note: no children were harmed in the taking of these photos. the little guy was under supervision the entire time and is unable to open or shut the door himself. I've never seen a kid so anxious to "help" with the laundry before!
