 Up and at 'um.  By 7:15 Gary, Daniela and Ariana were off to yoga.
 You already know where I was.
 Masterpiece has taken a shine to Belle, the new girl on the block.

 He was back in the kitchen again....
 Sally, let me introduce you to Jill's girls.
 This is Sophie...


 and a rear view of Newbie.

 All are very sweet and not used to being in a barn 24/7.  Hopefully they will be free to roam in a couple of weeks.

Our friend Judy stopped up with her granddaughter to pick up a basket of veggies.  Since we were going swimming this afternoon, we invited Halie to join us.  Got to Jen's around 2pm.  Beautiful blossoms outside her kitchen window.
 Kevin went out to do errands while Coop and Finn joined the four of us at the pool next door.

 I don't think they were having any fun.....

Kevin cooked dinner for the four kids...I went home around 5.
 New flowers for the kitchen table.

 Did evening chores....

 Went out for a quick bite... Picked up the girls on our way home.
 Beautiful sunset, with some rain in the forecast.
 When I went out to tuck the ponies in, there was Sophie, longing to be outside.  Visited with them for a little while and called it a day.
Night all.


  1. what a fun and busy day. Those kids may have had a little bit of fun! :-)))

  2. Looks like a perfect summer day. Your animals are very lucky. The pictures of the kids at the pool are priceless - what classic summer shots. You caught them and the mood of a summer day perfectly.

  3. Love those stop action shots of the kids! And love that header of Belle.

  4. sweet shots ALL!

  5. Those poor kids look just tortured ;)

  6. Looks like an action packed day. Great shots of those kids in the pool, I think you're right they don't look like they were having any fun at all.

  7. Anywhere, when you let children at a swimming pool, they put water all around. Funny pictures.
    See you soon
