cowgirl country

awhile ago, (i'm still trying to catch up) our girls were invited to a birthday party that had horse rides. the girls were so excited, they were beside themselves!

once we got there, the girls were given little cowgirl hats and pink bandana's.

after lunch, the kids were able to take several rides on the two horses:

our girls couldn't get enough! i think they probably weaseled the most rides out of the horses! nani has been asking for riding lessons ever since!

kawena and i even got a chance to get a little riding in. i don't think kawena knew what to think of the whole thing. she was very sober the whole time and never even cracked a smile!

when nani wasn't on the horses, she enjoyed giving "wagon rides" to the littlest crowd!

now, the girls seem to think that we need some horses of our own, just like maryn has! thanks for that eric and janine, we appreciate it!! i guess we'd better start looking for a ranch out in the country! yeehaw!

Fabulous pictures. I really need to learn how to work a camera... or move closer to a friend who knows how to work one.

How fun! Those pictures are so great! Is it your camera or a photo-shop program?

Amazing pics again...horses are the best. I bet the girls had so much fun!! I grew up with horses so I always tell Mikaila to tell daddy you want a horse. Someday...

Looks like a great time. I love that you rode too. Maya is having a cowgirl party but the only horses you will see at are party will be the stuffed animal kind.

This looks like great fun! and so nice to remember it with pictures and such good ones! I hope those are included on my CD. LaLa looks different in that 1st one. They're all so cute.

Love the pictures, and the girls do look pretty cute as cowgirls. I think the ranch thing should definitely be an option.

Tonya said...

You are such a great photographer! I LOVE those pictures. Did you add the color in the ones that look more sepia or what is the trick??? Your girls are gorgeous:0)

Gordon said...

your pictures are an inspiration to those of us still trying to learn how to take a clear picture :)
