Her first show

Isn't she gorgeous up on that horse? Heck she is gorgeous off that horse :) A#2 rode in her first show last Sunday and she did INCREDIBLE!!! Blogger has been a real pain recently getting pictures on here and these are all out of order but I was not going to try to reload them because it would have taken another week. That is her on her buddy Bam. Bam gave her such a great time for her first show, I think it's because he knows how much she loves him.
After the show we gave her a dozen pink roses and lots of hugs.

This is her riding trainer. These 2 have developed a very special bond over the last 2 years and I appreciate how protective she has become over A#2. She walked the fence the whole time A#2 was riding and had her daughter on the other side looking out for her as well.

After the show A#3 was so excited when they asked her if she wanted to walk Bam back to the truck. She followed directions, took him by the reins and took off, no intimidation what so ever. We might just have another rider on our hands ;)

Waiting for the judges to announce the winners. Ignore the date on the picture, I used A#2's camera and didn't realize she had the date set. The next picture is a very exciting one for us. A#2 was asked if she wanted to ride in the English class even though she has NEVER rode English before, ever. She took them up on the offer and placed 5Th!!!!!!!! She rode against a group that only ride English and had been trained for a long time and she placed 5Th!!! Oh my goodness we were all so excited for her and Bam.

Look at her go!!!!

Before she rode English she competed in a Western class and placed 6Th!!! This was the very first time she has ever been in a show, did I mention that, and placed twice!!!!

Her 6Th place ribbon.

Taking a little break in between classes trying to calm her nerves and Bam's.

I could have watched her for days!!

A#2's fan club!

Trying to figure out what classes to ride in.

It was such a great day! A#1 drove down for a bit and got to watch her ride in her first class (she didn't place in that one) and so did some grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins. This has become such a love of hers and it was such a joy to watch her and Bam. She has a way with these creatures and I have a feeling this will not be the last show we watch her in.

Glamasaurus Rex

The day A#3 got her purple cast, Uncle Steven came over with his tool box full of brushes and paints. She had already informed him she wanted a dinosaur so he knew what he was in for.
He sat down and started to sketch out the Dino including the tail that wraps all the way around.

And then he broke out the paint.

The picture does not do it justice. She even has a bow on her head and painted toes. It is the best cast you have ever seen!!!

And as you can see, she LOVES IT!!!

Thank you Uncle Steven!!!! You ROCK!!! A#3 loves you and so do we!!!

Let's give this a shot, shall we?

Due to the piece if poo computer that we have, due to broken bones, due to soccer for two girls, due to traveling and lots of football games, the Busy Blaine blog has been on the back burner for some time now. But oh how I have missed it :( So I'm not so sure if I will play catch up and overload you with lots of pictures or if I will just start fresh. I will tell you that little girl up there with the purple cast had a birthday yesterday and turned 6!!! My sweet A#3 broke her arm almost 4 weeks ago and has been such a trooper. She broke both bones pretty badly, while I was out of town, and has had a splint for 2 weeks and then her new cast was put on a week ago. Lucky for her she has an amazing artist for an uncle and he came right over the day she got her cast. I'll share pictures later. Oh and, it's good to be back!!!
