Super heros, Jingle Horses, and 14 little things that I LOVED about the day

Already to Day 6 of the LOVE Challenge! It has been so much fun. Yesterday was filled with so many little moments that I loved. A simple day with oh so many things to treasure.

  • One of the things I LOVED most about the day was ...running through the horse pasture with Ellie & Penelope (age 4&5)....hands out in the air...making sounds like we were Flying Super Heros ♥
  • A close second, and equally fun was the drive to the post office with Ellie, age 4. Every corner we would squeal like the little pig on the commercial. It was funny every time
  • Below are pictures of helping J2, age 12, jingle a few horses. Proud of him. He's getting so handy.


He got the baby sorted out and was playing with her a little.
Such a nice day. Great to spend a few minutes with the kids. Couldn't of asked for nicer weather either. Just had a pair of cowboy boots February!
Another thing I LOVED about the day was hearing about my sister weekend in at elk feeding camp. Below is a picture of her riding one of the team horses up the hill to water. Bareback...she's pretty much my hero!

Here is summary of the last few days of LOVE Challenge.
