4 Wheelers and Horseback Riding

Twice a year one of the mentors for our adult class at church invites us all out to his farm for a day of fun (this is us there last October). This past Sunday was the big day! First up, some of us girls headed out on the 4 wheelers to explore!

Abigail grew up driving 4 wheelers and I was really impressed with her ability to navigate so quickly and safely through the woods on one. I’m pretty sure we would’ve been going at a snail’s pace if I had been driving. 😉 {photos courtesy of Mandy}

As you can see, of all the photos above only one is actually mine. I got busy talking and not taking pictures. Which is okay with me. I mean, I love to have the pictures to go with the memories, but I’m also not one to beat myself up over missed shots. Some days I’d rather just live in the moment and not behind the lens and some days I like to juggle both. 🙂

After half an hour on the trails horseback riding, we headed down to the lake to watch some of the kids fish. After that it was dinner time and I chatted with my mommy friends and held babies. 😀 There was a bonfire with hot dogs, chili, and s’mores. And so much good conversation. It reminded me how blessed I am to have such a great group of friends. 🙂

  12. that sounds like an amazing and super fun day! Love that princess wave 😉

  13. I did the same thing this weekend… (Well, not the horse-back riding or 4-wheeling… Ha, ha. Although I LOVE doing that!). But I DID put my camera down and just enjoy the weekend. Sometimes, it’s so much fun to take pics… and sometimes, it’s great to just live in the moment. 🙂 Sounds like SUCH a fun day!!

  14. “Some days I’d rather just live in the moment and not behind the lens and some days I like to juggle both.” <- Amen!!

    Looks like you had a great time! Love the princess wave! I get soooooo nervous on horses, but I am totally at home on a 4-wheeler…I learned how to drive one when I was 14!

    • Haha! That’s funny ’cause I was sort of the opposite. I felt totally at ease on a horse since I’ve been riding from a young age, but being on a 4 wheeler was much scarier. I’m not sure why, haha! Thankfully Abigail was a great driver so I didn’t have to worry about coming to an untimely death. 😉

  15. Sooooo blessed indeed 🙂
