The guy had some horses and said we were welcome to ride them; then he left us to be on our own.
Kenzie was the first to ride. She loved it. Though she doesn't get to ride often, this was her element.
She got off the horse, we took a break for dinner, and then out of nowhere, another horse (the riding horses' daughter) on the other side of the rope, was on our side of the rope to get closer to its mom. We had been told that this younger horse was wild so we were a bit scared of it getting too close.
Instead of calling the man who owns the horses, my husband takes things into his own hands and jumps onto the saddled horse and tries to take care of the situation by herding the other horses back to the other orchard. In the meantime, another totally different horse gets over the rope. So now we have 3 horses in our "campsite".
We were all a little worried. But I just sat watching my cowboy husband ride a horse like he does it everyday and 'it ain't no big thang'. I had no idea that he could ride like that. I was pretty impressed!
I grabbed my camera to get some proof for later than I had married a cowboy and one of the first shots I got was this one.
I snapped this right as one of the horses (an old horse) took his rear leg to the horse Skyler was riding. The horse is used to being the alpha male, so he wasn't happy that he was being told what to do of sorts by Skyler and his horse.
After that my dad called for some help and and in the meantime, Skyler was able to get them back to the other pasture. Skyler was my hero! Little did I know, that he was hit in the ankle when the horse kicked back. Luckily it was just a scrape. It sure made for quite a story. This was no ordinary camping experience that's for sure!
S'mores. Our main goal this summer has been to master making the perfect s'more.
We're getting there, but not quite there yet. Oh, how I love campfires and s'mores!
Some of us didn't leave our electronic devices home.
However, this was a good way to entertain a toddler.
