Western Heritage

We had a whirlwind of a weekend in Abilene for the Western Heritage Classic which is a ranch rodeo that has all sorts of other events including a horse show, parade, shopping, and lots of food. Casey showed his horse on Thursday and Friday which left the rest of the weekend for us to hang out with friends and family. We even got to be in town for Mother's day! I enjoyed the day with my wonderful mom and own daughter. It is such a joy and blessing to be Avery's mother. Here are a few pictures from our busy weekend.
This is the only picture that I got with Avery on mother's day. Can you tell that she would rather be playing than taking a picture??
My wonderful husband.
My mom with all her kids on mother's day.
Avery and dad at the parade. Her cheeks are so red from the 100 plus temperature.
Munchkin and her Papa.
Nona, Avery, and Aunt Karla sweating out the heat.
Avery was sitting with Pop until she saw kids throwing candy from a float and then she was running after it.
My nephew Boone and us.
Helping out his Uncle Casey by holding the lead rope.
Being silly during the horse show.
Avery is playing with our dog Kate, who was hanging out in the trailer.
Watching the rodeo. She loved the bucking horses.
Avery's "cheese" face!
So I just now realized that there are no actual pictures of horses on this post. I was using the video camera when Casey showed his horse so I guess I didn't get a picture of him. Anyways, I had this one from the parade and thought it was funny of the mini horse and wagon!! Enjoy!

Looks like it was a fun weekend for you all indeed! How special that you got to be together with family for Mother's Day. Its crazy for me to think that it was 2 years ago that we were back for the Western Heritage. What a weekend that was! I can't believe how big Avery is getting and how long her hair is. She sure is a beautiful girl!
