Sun and Wind

Ethan and his dad
 This is what my family was doing today. Mom posted the picture of Ethan and his dad.
Matt ready for lead in
He got to go on a motorcycle ride with his dad today and you can tell by the way he was sitting behind dad he was enjoying every bit of it. You have to be careful when you talk about motorcycles, because he is right there ready to go. It was a beautiful day with a breeze, which felt cool even though it got a little warm this afternoon. I think I am more wind burned then sun. I know it blew hard enough that we had quite a few kids losing their hats. Enough that they told them that they could show without them.
Jake 2 first and a third
We spent the majority of the day watching the boys ride and even dad got into the act. They had big classes and a lot of horses even from out of state. The one today was a different circuit, but hosted at our grounds. 
Little brother didn't get to do as many events and dad bribed him to get him to consent to go home with Famous Dave's for supper after they took the horses home and took showers. He was fine with that. He wanted to do games. Whether he wins a race or not that is what he likes to do.  
Dad got 4th
I even got their dad to ride today so his dad could see him. He placed 4th. Matt got a third and second. Jake 2 first and a third which was a good day. Jake is turning 13 in a week and he was giving me hints for what he would like for his birthday. I just tell them to give grandma several ideas as to what they would like to have. It is easier that way. He has already put in his order for his birthday cake. It will be a three berry cobbler made in moms dutch oven. 
Hubby went and watch today. They let us park the car where he could watch from there or his wheel chair. He did both and  they are really nice to us in that respect. He was tired when we came home that much I know for certain. 
We will be birthday shopping and baby shopping this week. I am going to have a new great nephew and I have a baby shower to go to here in a couple of weeks. We will be busy. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am. Have a wonderful Sunday.
