Tuesday.....Around the World



We just had another beautiful week-end with horses in it.

Only this time they weren't tethered ponies....but the real deal.

I had a family photo shoot on Sunday, on location - out in the country and thought we should make it a family thing at the same time. 

So we stopped somewhere for a brunch and then they dropped me off at my shoot and went exploring. They spied some horses behind a fence when the owner spotted them and invited them in. (Really nice guy!) He gave them a tour of his grounds and stables and invited them to watch as a few of his horses were having a practice jump with their trainer in a little while. I arrived just as they were headed in the field with their horses.

 The girls wished we could have stayed all day and were less than thrilled to have to pile into the car and leave. They both had been getting up their nerve to ask for a ride but we quickly explained that these horses weren't the same as last weeks. (But that kind of logic went right over their heads.)


Me thinks there will be more horses in our future.

2 weekends in a row! Oh my goodness Wanda! That is so exciting! I love that the owner was so personable and invited you over to visit! How incredible for the girls. I hope they get to go riding again soon. I always take the kids riding at least once or twice a month in the summer. They love it so much.

That's absolutely gorgeous - and a reminder for me to get out and ride!

I miss you Wanda but am glad to stay in the loop here! I must update soon ( i have the best of intentions:)).

Beautiful is right! I love these. They remind me so much of how many years of my childhood were spent.

Wow..the colors are so grand in these shots and those thoroughbreds sublime.

I love the expressions on the girls' faces...and of course the amazing outfits. Look at the legs on Dahlia...talk about thoroughbred! WOW!

Love those girlies and love their Mama!
