The kiddos (Quade, Ben, Lauren, Lily, Kate) showing off their ribbons
Lauren's first time barrel racing! (Yeah, I know-Mark is doing all the work. But you gotta start them somewhere. If you ask me he deserves the "best daddy" ribbon for how much he led those kids around on Charity.
Ben and Quade doing the three-legged race
Here is Ben and Thomas who both got ribbons for the "T-pole" race - Good Job boys!
Lauren with her ribbons. She got first in the flag race. Third place in "key hole" run. And fifth place in "barrel racing." She is learning so much and can do quite a bit on her own, but I was thankful Dad was there right beside her :0) He says he should've ran faster around the barrels, then they would've got first....... I think Lauren just loved that the ribbon was pink!'
About a week earlier- All the kids at the horses just chillin'. Waiting for Charity to be saddled.
When it did come time to ride, the boys were actually more interested in climbing things!
But Lauren doesn't mind, she would ride all day long if we'd let her.
