Labor Day Weekend
Tuesday, September 05, 2006
So much to report but where to start. Saturday? Ok, Saturday was my dad's 50th birthday so we wanted to take him out on the boat so he could have a nice relaxing morning even though he had plans for that afternoon. We all loaded up and hit the lake about 10am. We rode around and went to the far said of the lake and I had a set on the wakeboard and then my DH had a set. We turned the boat off and then gave instructions to my sister's boyfriend on how to get up on the wakeboard. He gets settled in the water and......boat wont start. We ended up drifing in the lake for a couple of hours and then had to call his dad to come get us in his boat. It took an hour to be towed back to the ramp we launched at. Dad had to reschedule the vet and he missed the drop off for the paddock equipment. We did get to see two bald eagles circling the lake.
Sunday, We headed back over to my parents house and hung out for a while and then that evenning we went for a nice horseback ride at night. That was quite eventfull. Saddled my horse at twilight and walked them back to the arena. My dad had just tilled the arena so it was nice and soft dirt. My horse decided it was just right and just after I had mounted her she politely crouches down, drops to her knees, waits until I have got off and them proceeds to roll. She gets up I mounted and we had a nice moonlit ride around the arena for 30 minutes.
Monday, The vet comes over and gives the new filly a clean bill of health, tells us our Arabian mare is not in foal and my dad gets his paddock equipment. We then took the horses back to the arena agan and had a very nice bareback riding session.
Today the boat is fixed and back in action. All in all I would say it was a great weekend. We are also going on a vacation next week.
