Daddy, let your baby grow up to be cowgirls...

Being on vacation & it being a beautiful time of year, my dad asked me if I wanted to go horse back riding with him.  Now, my love for dogs is comparable to his love for horses.  He's always been a cowboy & he knows his stuff about horses.... me, I'm just along for the ride... but he's given me some horse knowledge through my life, and with a good ole horse, some basics on "steering", how to make them stop & I'm ready to go!  Here are some pictures of the day...It was just a perfect day...

The leaves were amazingly beautiful!!!

We came to a clearing & there was a playground.  When the kids saw us, it was like the world stopped.  Next thing we knew, kids were coming over to see the horses.  Dad & his horse are just too good around kids.  And dad was prepared - he had peppermint for the little ones to feed the horses!  This was so fun to watch!

Here I am... tell me the color isnt breath taking!

me & my daddy!! .....

Me & my "brother"... my dad's 3rd child!  Such a good horse!

I told dad I'm ready to go again when I get the chance... just a perfect day... but I'll be honest... I'm hurting in places that NO ONE should be hurting in.... a little bit of pain for a little bit of fun!


  1. How special to spend a day like this with your Dad. These are great pictures of your day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love seeing you and your dad up there!

  3. RJ,
    How beautiful!! These pics are just lovely. I'm assuming they were taking before the broken camera incident. tear.

    Your daddy with those kids was just precious. I love that so much!!

    You, my dear, make an adorable cowgirl!!!

    Have a Blessed Friday friend,


  4. I love this post! Aren't we having a spectacular fall this year? I am in awe of the beauty God showers us with on a daily basis, if we'll only take the time to look.

    Glad to see you having such fun with your dad and your "brothers". Sounds like you've had a great vacation!

    I've ridden a horse before and I had no idea how big they really were until I tried to get on one!! LOL

  7. What a wonderful day! Horses are better than anything to get the attention of kids.

  8. looks like you had a blast. And you were properly attired in your western shirt and cowboy hat :-) I loved riding horses when we would go out west on trail rides.

  9. Yes, yes, yes - beautiful colors! What a fun day!

  10. I don't see the family resemblance between you and your "brother"! lol

    You make such a cute cowgirl! I've always wanted my own horse!

  11. Lol! Yes, horseback riding reminds me of muscles in my body I didn't even know I had! ;)
