Our Cowgirls


Chloe Jane rides the horse!

I love how our kids give our grandkids enrichment opportunities all the time. Recently Lowell's sister and her family moved to Utah not far from where our kids live. On Labor Day they went out to visit and have a barbeque. The girls' Uncle Gordon gave them each an opportunity to ride their horse. I thought these photos were just so colorful and fun.

Miss Julia gets a turn!

Hazie rides the horsey!
She looks rather excited about this, don't you think?
She looks so tiny up there!
Hang on to her, Daddy!

Miss Piper gives it a try!
She looks so grown up on the horse
when you see where her feet are!

Hazel fell in love with their beautiful dog.
Jen said she spent about three hours doing this!

What a great and fun family day. The girls will never forget the wonderful things their parents expose them to when they are young. Isn't it fantastic that activities don't have to be expensive or elaborate to be meaningful in our lives? The wholesome times we spend together with our families are what make up the beautiful moments of life.

It is in times just like these that passions are born, talents and interests are developed, and family bonds are deepened. We have heard that families that pray together stay together. I think it can also be said that families that play together stay together too. Each little moment like this add to the glue that creates a heart print that endures.

My children think Utah is a vacation place because that is the only place they have ridden horses and ATV's. Great fun! I love the picture of Hazie with the dog. What a sweet natured dog to figure out the love of a child.

I love the animals the LORD has blessed us with on this earth. The children looked like they surely enjoyed their outing, especially Hazie. It's amazing how dogs have a special sense with people! Thank you for sharing your pictures!
Love to you all,
Susan

Hi Bonnie,
Just finally had a chance to come back and check out your cow girls,
they all looked like they were having fun, but Hazie looks the most tickled I have to say! she is just the cutest lil gal, course, they all are, but you would think with all the issues she has it might not be so,
so she really is amazing!!
and Amen to what you said about the family that prays and plays together, I could not agree more!
Love and Blessings, Nellie

So have you had time to find a new home for any of your new goodies yet???
