Wordless Wednesday - Father's Day with Grandpa

If you know me and you know my family, you know my dad spends his free time competitively team roping in local organized roping events. We grew up on a dairy but there was always a horse or two hanging out in their very own corral some where on the ranch.

Now that my dad has two grandsons, he is eager to share his appreciation for western traditions with his "boys" as they are affectionately called. You see my dad never had the chance to use the term boys, I have two sisters and it wasn't until the fourth time around that my parents got their boy, my little brother Ricky. We will save him for a later post, possibly one that details a visit to California from his current residence of Texas when he decides to visit his family. (Maybe he is reading and will get the hint.)

On to the Wordless Wednesday picture portion of this post. A few photos of Clayton and my dad Richard on my dad's horse, Denny over Father's Day weekend.

Me and my sisters know how to ride a horse but we never got involved in any competitive riding. We stuck with the cows and my little brother became the cowboy. However he too was distracted and decided riding a bull was more enjoyable than a horse. Again, I will save that for another post.

I know Clayton's life will be richer in wisdom and character because he too will learn from my dad just like me. It was a great Father's Day weekend in our family. I hope yours was the same. Thanks for reading. ~ mrs. c
