Our new family member

This past weekend we went back to the farm and received our newest horse- Wicket. I say newest because he is our 'second' horse that we have bought in the last several months. Our first trip to the horse market resulted in Ellie- a three year old former race horse that still had a bit too much energy in her veins and needed near constant training and attention. Ellie now lives with a family that can give her that attention. Since the horse market is way down, finding a new horse wasn't too much a challenge... for Kadi.

So we now have a seven year old 'paint' named Wicket He is much calmer. And much, much huger. This thing is a beast! Even with Wicket's massive girth being, this guy is just great around the kids. Well this says it all.

Our New Friend

Two more days before we leave for Disney World!! The kids and I are excited. Kadi is too busy planning to pack to get excited. :)

Spring Time in St Louis

Just last night, Kadi and I were talking about how great the weather is here in St Louis this time of the year. Not too hot (that will come later), not too cold (that has been lately), just right.

Leyton- 10mo

We are amazed how quickly Leyton has been growing up. He went from a slow crawl, to being a super fast crawler in no time at all. He is super fast now on all fours. He will be walking in no time at all. I was able to catch him in a moment of stillness, mainly because he was trapped in the corner (those things can be tricky!).

I Got Published!!

I think it is fitting that my first blog post in a bit is something special. My picture of the famous Cuban Restaurant in Key West has been published on-line for a travel and review site.
Schmap has a link here:

To be honest, I'm not even a big fan of the picture. The composition in my head never came to the camera, and I was without a zoom lens when I realised I was going to nearly a block away to take the picture (sun, and vans parked in the way).

But still, I am published. I am (relatively) famous. I have still made exactly $0.00 on this hobby!
