Pony Rides!

We heard through the grapevine that the Onyx Farmer's Market was having pony rides during the holiday weekend! Well we couldn't pass that up! So I called Auntie Kowees (Kalli) and we loaded up the kiddos and headed on down to Onyx in search of an adventure!

Our good friends Tiffani and Michelle (which are actually family) got Heston all ready with cousin Jake's little chaps from when he was the size of Heston, too cute!

I heaved Hes up onto the saddle, and he took to it like a cow to cud and a pig to mud.

 Ruby was so prepared to ride the ponies that she even picked out her favorite horsie shirt!
 Sadie joined in on the fun too! She loves Auntie Kowees and needed some time in her arms along with Ruby.
 Heston happened to find a tractor while he was there too, imagine that.
 Hi my little cowpoke!
 Look at those ears!
 Riding like a natural!
 He looks so serious!
There's sister Sadie with Charlie! Wave hi!

What good memories!

Ah Nuts!

The guys did cattlework yesterday, so you know what that means-rocky mountain oysters for dinner! Tom is always so excited to eat these puppies, I, on the other hand, could just puke!

So I had nuts in my sink along with veins, blood, and other extras, but Tom kept chugging along!

 Then when Heston saw that I had the camera, he said "cheese" and then told me to take a picture of Sadie too, so here she is, staring at the camera.

 Then Tom filleted the nuts and posed next to Heston, clearly Heston is not interested.
 The before product....
The after....

I stilll haven't tried them and don't really want to, am I a true farmer's wife then?
