A week ago, the boys put their cowboy boots to good use. Jenna's good friend, Katlyn, invited us to their farm so that they boys could ride horses. Tate was going to be the first to ride but, when Jenna lifted him up to the horse, he began screaming and changed his mind real quick. So, Jayden was the brave cowboy to ride first. I tell you, he was SO RELAXED riding and jabbered an ear full to Katlyn as she led him around.
The boys decided that they had been on the horse long enough so Katlyn took them into the barn to "help" her brush the horse out. It's not picture worthy because each one brushed for less than a minute and decided they were "all done". It was after that that Jayden noticed the spurs on Katlyn's boots and BOY.WAS.HE.INTRIGUED. (I chuckle each time I see this picture of him in his plaid shorts and cowboy boots.)
Sitting on the tractor was a must, of course...
One of the favorite things of the day was the pigs. Katlyn's pigs were like pet pigs...they LOVED PEOPLE. They loved to be scratched behind their ears and on their backs and when they oinked my boys thought it was hilarious--I mean downright belly laughing worthy. What added more fun was that the boys had watched Charlotte's Web a few days before which made them have all the more interest in the pigs.
And every barn must have a cat, of course.
