Mother’s Day

Posted Sunday, May 13, 2012, at 9:47 PM


I come back to these blogs, start to read, but this is what I'd rather look at.  Mother's Day at our house, is always fun ..heck, any day at our house is always fun.... LOL. 

What I know is, that when good people come together, to enjoy one another's company, THAT is what's important.  It's a fact, yesterday, today and tomorrow...and all days....

Below is my son (in green) who came home for Mother's Day from college.  THAT is a Mother's Day present if I ever saw one.  He leaves tomorrow, as he got a job where he was....darnit.  His girl friend Erica, is next to him.  Maggie is my sister's Daughter.  She is little Autumn's (red headed ginger) Mom.  And her husband next to her.  Good times here.

Bryce has a fascination for the water.... I agree, it's just cool.  One of my earliest memories, was pumping water from those old hand pumps.

Jilly is getting ready to do some "jumping" and I'm talking with her about it.  I'm wearing my Mother's Day gift from my Mom..... a sexy apron, that says "Cooking Diva"  I love to cook.... and I always wear an apron.... and apparently mine is ho hum, and has gotten pretty icky.... LOL.... so now I have this !  I was wearing a sundress anyway, and if I'm in the field, I wear boots.... cute huh????

Mother's Day 067

Jump #1.  I'm happy with that one.  It's ok.

THIS is an awesome jump.  She has given him his head.  Reins are loose.  She's UP and over his neck, and her feet are supporting her.  She's 7, I'm proud!

Mother's Day 112

Here is the "come down"  her feet are supporting, hands on his neck, so she doesn't jerk his mouth (we work hard at that) and she's "looking ahead, where she wants to go"  Yep, I'm proud of her!

Mother's Day 113

Marshmallow is wondering why she isn't being ridden.  soooooo

Mother's Day 128

So, Bryce decides to ride.  He really hasn't been riding 'alone', but today, for Mother's day, he goes and does it.  He is riding his Daddy's saddle.  I bought that saddle about 26 years ago.... that is one of those good purchases.  Bryce says "Bye!  I have to go 'round' up some cows like Grandpa"  and he rides into the sunset

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
