VERY busy month! So busy I am sitting in the bath with a beer! 🙌 🍻
We have been having tons of friends out to the farm over the past couple weeks! Some to just ride, some to lesson and some to just escape life and enjoy the ponies. It's been so amazing! Somedays we get so wrapped up in this well oiled machine of our life and caring for the farm, that we forget to relax and share our beautiful paradise with others. There are days when just finding the time is difficult! But it's so worth it and the time shared will always be cherished!
In the blink of an eye... Ashlyn turned 2 in late July! Although we did not have a party for her, she was showered with gifts from friends and family. Although some days our patience is worn through, she is the sweetest and most happy soul you will ever meet. It's hard to believe she is 2! She is speaking and loves to say "Your Welcome!" Other fun words are: Maui- sissy come back!- pony- horsey- pig pig- binkis!- milk- gummies (her vitamins)- Rio- OK!- ice cream- poopy!
Mikes parents came out to visit this past month and they had some great times with the kids! Granted, I think they were TOTALLY prepared to give them back; they were officially exhausted! We wore them out! We waited for grandma to go with Malin to get her ears pierced and although Malin had a VERY concerned look during the procedure, she sucked it up and is SO happy she did! Grandma did a fantastic job prepping her and getting her in to the routine of washing and turning her earrings 3 times a day. It's still all Malin talks about. They all hit the beach, the movies, a ninja warrior course and a few dinners out. Great visit in the books! But Oklahoma is calling them back...
Mike is FULL throttle on the Etsy storefront and has been cracking out trunks, saddle stands and totes like no ones business! I have even been busy with my brush sets and even individual hair brushes!
Mike will take a trip out of the country this month for the Navy! The first real trip he has done since having Ashlyn! He asked permission to fly a jet out and I pretty much told him to get lost. I got this! You do you!
We hope you all are well and having a great summer! ☀️
