Horse Riding

A very nice lady has had my sister, Emily, and I over to ride her horses several times.  I shall first introduce you to the horses.  There are three of them.  

Bessie 

El 

PB

 Halle feeding El and PB

 Halle petting PB 

 Kissing the horsies 

 A gentle nudge  

"Do you have any more treats?" 

 Halle's little brother Logan is adorable.  He's a little cowboy.  

 The horses were so big compared to him.  :)  

"The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat...and a little child will lead them." 

Emily riding Bessie 

Job 39:19-25 
“Have you given the horse strength?
  Have you clothed his neck with thunder?  
Can you frighten him like a locust?  
His majestic snorting strikes terror.
He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength;
  he gallops into the clash of arms.
He mocks at fear, and is not frightened;  
nor does he turn back from the sword.
The quiver rattles against him, 
the glittering spear and javelin.
He devours the distance with fierceness and rage;
 nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded.  At the blast of the trumpet he says, ‘Aha!’ 
 He smells the battle from afar,
 the thunder of captains and shouting.

The Zoo!

Who likes to go to the Zoo?  I do.  I love watching the animals.  Last year we went on a trip to the zoo. Here are some pictures.  Enjoy!  

 This seal was so cute!  

 Did I mention he was cute?  :)  

They had camel rides.  I wished I could've ridden one.   

 Lily.  :) 

 Lamas.  They don't smell the best.

 Flamingoes are so pretty.  I love the color.  

Otters.  These little otters were all over the place.  

 A beautiful peacock

The rainforest was probably my favorite place.

I just had to take a picture of this ladder.  It was so cool.  I guess it reminds me of a treehouse.  

This bridge was the best.  We had so much fun swinging on it.  

Walking across the bridge.  

We had much fun climbing on this sea-lion!  As you can see, it was a big hit for Emily.  

HeHe.  A one eyed Zebra.  My other eye just didn't make it in there.

The caves were pretty awesome.  I love the sound of the drippings in the caves!

The drawings on the wall made me think of "The Door to the Dimholt Road" in LOTR.   

This one did also.  I, of course, had to take a picture of it.  :)  

The forest was pretty sweet.  It felt like you were in a real forest.

Emily Photo-shoot

My younger sister dressed up, so I decided to take some pictures.  

 This looks like it could be on a movie cover.  

 Gorgeous!  

 ... 

 I think she looks like Eyown, from Lord of the Rings, in this picture.  

And this picture.  :)  

 She looks very determined and bold.  

I love how her hair is blowing in the wind.  

Emily, you're such a great friend:D

Happy 4th of July!

The sunset is like a blanket covering the sky.  

Flying high.  

Above the water.

Happy 4th of July!

Leah and Sarah Photo-shoot

Last summer, a good friend of mine and I had a medieval photo-shoot.  Here are some pictures.  I hope you enjoy!  

 We were trying to make it look like the cover for a movie.  

 I'll start with Leah.  Leah is a very dear friend of mine.  We have had many memories together.  
I'm thankful she's my friend!

  
She could be in a fairytale.  :) 

Walking through our overgrown creek.  

Turning back.  

Lovely boots.  

...

Attack!

A bush blew right in front of me as Leah took the picture.  I think it turned out pretty cool.  

I like the white lace up next to the black boots.

Looking for a target.  We just shot at a hill.  :)  

Hunting "orcs."  

"Any last words?"

I wish I could shoot at moving things in the air.  Sadly I can't.  

Waiting for the enemy.
