cowboy up.

Yesterday we went horseback riding! Buzz road with me and Kazoo got her own! She looked so little on that big horse named Rowdy! We had a trail dinner at the top of the hill that tasted so good! On the way down Rowdy started to trot and Kazoo bounced right off, but she held the reigns tightly, did a tarzan yell as she swung around the front of the horse and then let go, doing a gymnast's landing out of harm's way. Then she got up, dusted herself off, and jumped right back on! Buzz spent his time looking for Bigfoot in the forest and asking the cowboy trail leader if there were lots of monkeys in the trees. He pretended he was a Jedi on a ton-ton. Natalie whooped and hollered with glee every time her horse would trot or jump over a stream. She was definately the giddyest-up cowgirl this side of Cheyenne! We had a great time!

The Marvelous Month of May

The month of May was, as Isaac would put it, fa-fa-fabulous! The sun finally started to shine and the kids could run and play outside with our friends and neighbors. Cinco de Mayo was exciting. Kinzi and I made earrings out of sunflower seeds, red paint, and embrodery thread. I taught her class the Mexican hat dance and we made mini pinatas. Buzz is always wearing some super hero outfit, night and day. Sometimes he won't change for weeks at a time. Ezra chases birds. McKinzi was my super helper for Lorinda's baby shower, serving all the guests punch and then cleaning up after them. We had a lot of fun and I was able to express publibly in front of all my friends what a special and wonderful daughter I have. Both Kinzi and I weeped! I used sister-in-law's fun animal blanket design and it worked out just right! And yes, this is actually Natalie posting on our Teeples family blog. First time ever! It's not so bad.
