Summer Afternoon Fun

Nothing brings me greater pleasure than sharing my interests with Remi and Kennedy. I think I may be creating little crafters and horse enthusiasts! Remi has already asked her mom about a horse! Guess I really have made an impression! Remi is also the one who asked specifically to go riding. It has been so hot I was trying to find a day when we could do it early in the morning when on Tuesday we got a break from the least enough I didn't mind taking them riding. We had cloud cover all morning and into early afternoon keeping temperatures in the low 90's with a good breeze. Vanessa is coaching the cheerleaders at our local private school (where she attend K-8th grade). She had cheer practice that afternoon so we made arrangements to bring the girls to me during that time.

I rode like this all the time as a kid because I couldn't put a saddle on a horse. I'd take a bucket with a handful of feed. Catch the horse, then turn the bucket upside down to help me get on then would ride the horse back to the barn or wherever I was riding. I have no idea why Kennedy has on a hooded sweatshirt! It wasn't long before she was ready to take it off!

Kennedy didn't like walking through the weeds so she decided she wanted to ride behind Remi.

I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture (you can click on the photo to see a larger view and you probably can) but Remi is holding flowers we picked that she saw while riding.

The camera didn't see what the girls were seeing because I was on the ground but you could see the Eastern side of the city from this little knoll. Remi said "I can see the world from here." I just love the perspective of a child!

It was only fair to switch so Kennedy could ride up front. She was mostly interested in riding to the little playground behind St. Mark's Lutheran Church.

See our transportation in the background tied to a tree?

Kennedy taking her turn at the slide.

Remi figured out it was fun to twist this and spin around!

Neither one of the girls knew what this was or had ridden on one!

Remi's hair kept getting in her face. I told her she looked like the "Thing". She didn't have a clue what I was talking about!

The pasture was getting mowed while we were riding. The weeds were really tall in places!

Mommy pulls up just as we are finishing.

Have a good one!
