Wordish Wednesday - My Cowgirl

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

Last Thursday, I kept Camdyn home from school so that we could have a "Big Girl Day" with Gramma.  When I asked her what she wanted to do the first thing she said was "Bake Cookies!"  So, we did.  Then, we met a friend at the park for a picnic and play date. 

And, then we surprised her with a 1:00 pony ride.

She was in heaven.  My girl loves horses and loves that we now live in horse country.  The stable was walking distance from our house. 

For her birthday, my Mom gifted her with a pair of pink cowgirl boots (that light up) a hat, and an adorable denim skirt.  She chose to wear the boots and the hat on her special day.

Cuteness overload.  She looks the part and she is the part.  My girl knows A LOT about horses, including the wisdom that you should never walk directly behind one.

And we had a lovely day at the ranch and with each other.  It was one of those days that I'll always treasure, and I'm hoping that years down the road, the memory will linger for her too.
Happy Wednesday, Ya'll!

Boots that light up?!?!?! Oh man Cam better not wear those around Rylie. LOL

The pictures are adorable...and so is her outfit! I used to show horses, and I want so much for Rylie to do the same at some point. Horses are wonderful animals, and it sounds like Cam already has a lot of love, and most of all, respect, for them.

Happy WW!

Oh so sweet. What a cute outfit. My little girl would be green with jealousy if she saw the horse pictures. ;) Thanks for sharing.

The picture of Camdyn from behind where she's hanging on the fence is definitely a framer! What an awesome day for her - so sweet that she got to have such a cool surprise as riding ponies!

The first picture is beautiful Carol! I think it is so nice that our girls have such a passion for horses and penguins! Little Chick's bedroom has penguins everywhere! I am sure you have lots of horses at your house. Ha! Have a great night my friend!

Sounds like a picture perfect "big girl day." Cam does look adorable in her pink "ropers." Tell her I have some cream-colored ones but they don't light up!
