Another busy weekend around the ‘ole Range this week. The weeks are clipping off so fast I can hardly stand it. As much as I adore Fall I do love those lazy days at the lake with the family, sunshine, doughboys, ribs, corn on the cob, fishing, swimming, boating etc etc etc…Miss T was so tired after Saturday at the lake that she went to bed at 6:30 when they got home and slept till 7 the next morning!
We got the dough to rising when we first arrived at the lake so that it would be ready for the afternoon.
Doughboys cooking in the electric frying pan. YUM!
The kids love to ride in the tube behind the boat. It’s a grandmother’s job to be nervous about it and I keep my eyes focused on them ready to jump in at a moments notice. Not that that would do much good but I like to think I can still swim like I used to ‘back in the day’.
It was The Hubs birthday so we celebrated with a cake and ice cream.
Grampie and D fishing. They caught tons of sunfish.
Getting ready to jump off the dock.
The next day was very overcast and not very good lake weather so we decided to go to the team penning competition to see what Scooter did in his former life. It gave me insight as to why he does what he does under certain circumstances like rushing the canter. When you are chasing those cows your horse goes into overdrive!!!! Now he is being retrained to be a grammie walk, trot, lope horse which is a much easier way to make his living!
It was fun watching everything though, the horses know what they are doing as do the riders. I would never try this as I would land in a heap on the first turn! :o)
There were lots of folks from Canada down for the weekend. I thought of you Pea! I was wondering if you were going to come galloping out with the Canadian flag but it was another gal. Darn! Then they came out with the American flag and a young girl sang the Star Spangled Banner. She did a really good job!
The cows were frisky! They changed cows every few runs so that they didn’t get overtired.
It was a fun morning watching all the people and their beautiful horses. I think Scooter was probably thinking how nice it was to be home grazing in the pasture instead of chasing cows!! :0)
