Happy Trails Ranch

On Saturday, we went to our friend Ethan's 4th birthday party at Happy Trails Ranch. We had never been there before and it was SO.MUCH.FUN!!!! It was great to hang out with good friends, and watch our kids laugh and play!
First they all got to feed the horses.

 Then they watched the cat do some tricks.

 Next we headed out of the barn and the kids jumped on the back of the tractor to watch the poodles do some tricks.

 Jumping over the fence.
 Look at this sweet face!
 ... and this one!
 The poodle can even jump rope!
 After she did all of her tricks, the kids got to pet her.
 Next they were off for a tractor ride. 

 When they came back, it was time to ride the horses. Here is the birthday boy Ethan deciding which horse he wanted to ride first. 
 My little man... He LOVED IT!
 Waiting patiently to ride the other horse. 

 Take ya for a ride on my big, blue tractor.....

Of course the kids worked up an appetite. They enjoyed Chik-fil-a for lunch, and of course some yummy cake!
This last one of my two just melts my heart....
Thanks, Christy and Mark, for inviting us to celebrate Ethan's special day!

Happy New Year!

My brother and sister-in-law had a big New Year's Eve party this year. (It is also Stephanie's birthday on the 31st- but she doesn't like anyone to make a fuss over it.)
Everyone had so much fun, and it was the perfect way to end our trip down South!

 My oldest friends!!!

 Breakin' it down on the dance floor!

 Black eyed peas on New Year's Day!!!

Happy New Year to all of my family and friends! I hope 2012 is the best year yet!!!!
