Gracie's photo shoot

My sister-in-law Jamie had a wonderful idea to use the dance recital costumes for a photo shoot while we were in Canada. Here are some of my favorites. It was so hard to choose. Jamie is truly the most talented person I know. She can do anything and it always turns out amazing.

Horseback Riding, Yee-haw!

This year instead of going to the Alpine Stables, we went riding with our friend Bruce Johnson. It was really fun to go some new places and as always it was wonderful. After the ride we had a picnic lunch in a grove of trees. Southern Alberta is so beautiful. We did have a little bit more excitement than usual. Crew's horse took off and he was yelling, "I don't think this is supposed to happen!" as he galloped pass. Luckily Bruce caught up to him on his horse and got control of the situation. At the top of this hill as we were looking out over the amazing landscape, Aaron's horse rolled over. He had to jump off so that he wasn't crushed. It was so strange. It was definitely more entertaining than trail riding in Waterton.
