An Elf's Escapades

Cock Fighting?? Really GELK?!?

{ Oh - and the Girls' Pony too }


Okay... So I want to be witty, but I am exhausted. The girls were up at the crack of dawn raring to go!Sunday means Sunday dinner with my Aunt and Uncle and the girls get to ride their pony, Wendel, my Aunt's horse Oberon and also play with my Aunt and Uncle's four dogs and one cat.  It's my girls version of a farm. And well... Farm makes me think chickens and chickens reminded me of my kitchen rooster and the rooster plus my mischievous GELK made me think Cock-fighting {Something I am wholly against!} But.... and now that we're here I cannot think of anything witty to write about GELK and the rooster.  My brain is fried from an afternoon of riding with the girls and an evening visiting with my Aunt and well....there were a few mimosas. I'm sleepy........

I shall try to do better tomorrow. GELK is already nestled into his new hiding place.  Hopefully a little more difficult for the girls to find, but.... I doubt it. Gigi found him in no time at all this morning and the rooster on top of the kitchen cabinets is not exactly in her eye line.... She does love a good game of hide-n-go-seek though!

Here are a few shots of the girls riding today! {and p.s. I know this should be it own post.... But have I mentioned that I'm exhausted??}

Sweet Dreams......


{ Wendel }

I don't know why... there are a few really sweet photos of the girls grooming Wendel, but this one.... The posture the turned head and the hand slay me.  I wish I knew what she was thinking at this moment! :)

Grinning from ear to ear yelling "Yee-Haw!" as usual!

Thumbs up.
Really Daredevil?!?
Why don't you keep your hands on the reigns. 
Then again she started out riding a year ago bareback and doesn't even ride with stirrups -
so.... why not? We'll make a trick rider of Lula yet!

Just a girl and her pony - Lost in thought

Okay so Lula is my equestrian. There is no doubt about it.
I was sure with how much I love horses and how much I lived to ride and simply be in the barn when I was a girl my girls would feel the same. Gigi, well Gigi takes a little time to warm up to riding.
She is never really sure at first if this is fun or terrifying.


Okay... No.... this is fun!! 

Gigi thinks Lula is standing too close to the pony.... I know a few people who are going to see this might think the same thing, but Lu.... Not Lu. She has NO FEAR.

Lula is pretty impressed with herself!  I'm impressed with her too! She's quite a natural.
