Pony Ride

Maya's first Horsey/Pony ride!!

Look at her determination!!

Okay, so I took probably TOO many photo's but Gramma Turtle did not get to see her ride the pony!! 

She is a NATURAL, she did so well.

Ahhh it started and stopped.
I think we have a future equestrian on our hands. :)

An Ode to my nephew Max, 
whom I adore and treasure!

Born Feburary 2, 2010

 "God knew that I loved you too much to be your friend, 
so He made me your auntie"

What a cutie patootie!

Max's photoshoot in Mazatlan!

look who's riding a horse!!

Max is so adventurous he loves 
to run and play with Daddy,


or by himself too!

Nephews are the children that we borrow,
Intending not to raise but merely love,
Ever watchful from our open window,
Caring deeply at a slight remove.
Everywhere you go, my love will follow,
Still part of you wherever you may live.

Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch Time!
Grandma Turtle (Sandra), my mother came down to visit us and we went to Faulkner Pumpkin Patch with Max, Auntie Tina, Uncle Mark, Grandma Donna and Grampa Duncan, unfortunately Daddy had to work.

The pristine Faulkner Ranch!
I don't look pregnant here!
Look at all the different pumpkins.

I finally had someone to take pictures of us, while I took pictures, mostly of Maya.

Me doing what I LOVE!!

In all these pumpkins a blade of grass goes in her mouth.

 Maya was fascinated with all the pumpkins,

It was difficult to get her to look at me and not the pumpkins.

 and excitement!!

 Yeah, Gramma Turtle and Maya found some BIG pumpkins.

Maya was standing up next to these big pumpkins.
"Look Mommy....Goats!"

Laying down on the Hayride!!

My favorite model is my beautiful daughter, Maya. 

Picture of Maya's first horse ride to follow up soon......
