May Almost Here

These are my two grandson's that I will be watching starting the 11th of May. Their first show is what they call a fun show. They don't have to wear the mandatory shirts that will be require when the official first competition starts in June.  The horses have had all of their shots and test ready to go. They will pick Lady up from my brothers this weekend so my oldest will be showing two horses instead of one. 
The pictures were taken last year when they were doing trails at one of the shows. It required them to wear white shirts which is hard to keep clean while they are doing that. 
They are both getting anxious to start. I think then in June it will be every weekend. At least they will not being competing against each other because big brother had to move up a level.

 I think that made both of the boys happy for a change. I will be taking pictures so that I can show grandpa.  Grandpa and three others are doing the Boys Night Out at the Nursing home. They are going to take them to see the Bull riding competition. Two of the aides and the van driver will be going with them. It should be a fun time for them. Normally it is the women that is having a shopping day or something.  I think it is rather nice. They wanted to know if I cared and I said no. 
The last picture is Matt with his two friends. They are going to be riding horses and can't wait. They all play together when they have a show. 
The kids whether boys or girls they all get along and have a lot of fun.
We warmed up today to a whopping 56 degrees, but the wind and the rain made it seem cooler then that. We didn't get the rain that they have predicted. We are suppose to get to 70 tomorrow, but I am not counting on it. I haven't really planned my day. I just do whatever I feel like. I have been working on a custom order. I had to go get some more thread today for that one so I could get it finished and ready to ship. 
At least when we had the snow, it didn't last to long. The ground was warm so when it started warming up it melted pretty fast. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Shirley! The pictures are great, thanks for sharing.
We were in the 70's yesterday! I tried a bit of garden work and now I am in severe pain. =(

You must be so proud of your grandsons...they are full of life and so good at what they do! Fun!

It doesn't feel like it's almost May because spring has taken so long to arrive. I am having my carpets cleaned so I'm grateful it's warm today and I can have the windows's those little things that make me happy! ;-D

Shirley, your grandsons are so handsome. Love to see them on those beautiful horses, too. Enjoy your weekends of watching them ride. No better time than when you are watching your grandchildren participate in a special event. I am glad your hubby is going to be able to get out and about some too.

Aren't we glad that things are finally beginning to warm up? I haven't been able to plan anything definite outside because of the crazy weather. Oh well, in a month we'll probably be begging for these temps. LOL

It sounds like you will be having fun this summer! Great pics! Hope your weather is good today, we're finally having a few nice days. But more rain and cooler temps (yuck) is in the forecast for later in the week. Have a good week and enjoy the nicer weather!

Spring has arrived, I am in the garden a lot ... & taking care of Mackenzie keeps me very busy. Not doing much blogging at all.
