Good Monday Morning everyone!!! we are experiencing thunderstorms this morning..Really cloudy and dark today..might not get much done in the yard..unless it clears up..Today though I have to get blood drawn (every 6 months) for my kidneys to see where my renal panels..then hopefully get back to nicer weather so I can continue to rip out the side portion of the yard..I worked on it for about 1-1/2 hours on saturday..but it was just to stinkin hot..but I got alot of it ripped out..hoping to put bark down the end of this week..can't wait..I am already decorating it in my head and for fall too..(isn't that just like a woman)..we are always thinking ahead..lol Well on saturday was our pioneer day..I picked up my girlfriends two boys and we headed out..they had it all set up and the food was cooking when we got there..good thing..cause I was starved..I had bits of everything..even dessert..but only tastes..
they had a pool, trampoline, horseshoes, and horseback riding for everyone..
these are some of the photos of the horse drawn ride that I went on 3 times..its my favorite...one of the horses coming to greet us..
love this part of the area..I truly long to be in the country with all the farms, barns and pastures..truly picturesque..
This arabian named Lucky kept coming up each time we trotted by...beautiful horse..
you can see the water..great views these folks have..
we never got down to the light house as the horses were going to be in a wedding the next day and Al didn't want to tire the horses and it was a hot day..and thats a big wagon they have/had to pull..
Lucky again..he wanted to be with us.
Here is Poncho in the front and Lefty (he is on the right)..they are 14 year old Percheron horses..not related..(I asked all the questions)..:)
there they go for a walk around the block..
SundaeLee taking a break from being a new mommy to ride a horse..
this is where the two draft horses live..This is Al's place..beautiful..;)
I had SundaeLee take my photo so you knew that I was actually here..it was so relaxing listening to the clip clop of the horses hooves and the nice breeze and talking with everyone..the best part of the day.;)
coming back home..love this home of our friends Bob and Mikki..beautiful gardens..(this is Al's Son's home)..and where the festivities were at..the 2 dogs walked with us every time...one even came on board for the last ride..
I took a dump cake for my thing and when I came home and put the dish in the sink to soak..I left the basket on the table..and Little miss sunny E Buns got comfy...
Then it was Poe-Poe's turn..she looks like she is smiling..they love getting in baskets..she melts me with that smile..
Well I am off to get ready and start my day..I hope you all have a great monday..
