Horseback Riding!

The other evening, my mom took the kids horseback riding on some of her horses. In these pics...the kids are all riding on Coby. Sorry they are so sister emailed them to me and these are the size they are! LOL These pics were taken in my sister's front lawn...but that isn't her house in the top pic..that is her neighbors! My mom is leading M in the first pic...then below is J and then X is at the bottom!

They really enjoyed it! Although, J was super scared. But now he tells everyone that he "rode Coby"! That evening, I wasn't there...Chris and I had gone to pick up a truck that he is hoping to fix up (another project...hehe). So Devon took these pics to share with me...and I thought it would be nice to share them with you...even though they are small. LOL

OH!!! And yesterday was my "weigh in day"! I went to my dr's office and got weighed...and...i lost another 3 lbs!!!! WOOT!!!! That is a total of 8.5 in 2 weeks! To God be the glory. I know it is He who is my strength in all this! Finally.....the extra weight is coming OFF!!! Hope you all have an absolutely wonderful friday and a blessed weekend!!! xoxo

    Thanks for th ekind words for the newlyweds. My Dh and I have been married 33 years and Angela's parents almost 27 so they have good role models.

    I am adding your link to my blog and plan to come back often and some rainy day, I'll read backwards too.

    That horse is as cute as can be. I just love paints. They're my favorites. I am hoping to begin Colton in a hippotherapy program. I've read that it is great for the hips of kids with CP.

    What a lovely time for the children!
