A holiday weekend ... what better way to spend it than out in nature with family?

The first game was FUN ... But I have to admit my favorite story came from little Mr. A about his teammate Charlie who only likes to play in the dirt.

The latest venture is cheerleading ... and this nimble little critter is diving right in! She won an award for "most spirit" at the first game.

This not-so-nimble creature looked a little out of place on the cheer squad!

Pearl Jam

The lead singer of Pearl Jam sang the star spangled banner at a Cubs game. Of course, I have to be a stalker and see how many pictures I can get. I think I may have caught him nearly picking his nose (or was that someone else) but I don't want to go through the piles of photos (actually, he's quite tiny even with my 300mm lens in the full photos) trying to find it! Forgive me for not keeping tabs ... but I'm not one to always remember who's who. Eddie is all I know!

I am so curious ... I will have to check this out. Evidently they are on a scavenger hunt and filming things with their Palms.

Horse, of course!

The smile says it all ... she'a a regular cowgirl now. I wish I had time to put together the photo album now. Eventually, I will. She is riding like a little pro!!

My little cowgirl!

Look at her! I am so proud. She just works like a little trooper and I can't wait to watch her on the horse after she is done grooming.

Future Fantasy Suite

I have this "thing" about living in a silo ... Maybe a string of wi-fi Bed and Breakfast locations across the prairie! Now that would be awesome.

Joy of Riding

Thank goodness for grandparents with cameras! My "little one" (she's not so little any more, *sniff*) had her first riding lesson! My mothers colleague and friend used to teach private lessons for years. She's retired now, but does it for her grandchildren and invited Mom to bring hers as well. So the next trip to Grandma & Grandpa's house is going to be full of horse fun!

How slow do you want the fire to burn?
