H is for Horse. F is for Fish.

We are continuing on our alphabet trip around Washington State and crossed H and F off our list this month.

A few weekends ago we went up to beautiful Summit Lake, where my grandparents live.  The weather was awesome, and the kids (and Zac) even went swimming!  It was great to visit with the family, and Keanan did some fishing off the dock.  He was so excited, and even caught enough to feed us and a bunch of friends for dinner that night.  Nothing like fresh trout, yum!!!

Today we were invited up the the ranch at Cascades Camp for pony rides!  It's a huge bonus when Auntie Jess is the ranch manager =)  This is the first time the kids have really been on horses, and they LOVED it!!  They each got to walk/trot around the arena on their own horse and then Auntie Jess hitched up one of the horses to the pony cart and they trotted around the arena some more.  They really got comfortable on the horses - Keanan was riding with no hands and Kyla loved riding bareback! After we took the two horses back to the pasture with the 30 or so other horses the kids fed them carrots and we did some bird watching down at the marsh.  Lots of family fun!
