For The Love of Sugar

I think all the kids have fallen in love with Sugar. While were with spending time Mom and Darryl we got a double bonus, we got to spend time with the horses and with family that I have not seen in a long time.

The kids all got a ride on Sugar and they all got to lead her around the training arena. I think they got more joy leading such a big sweet animal around than did riding her. She was wonderful with the kids and they are sill talking about her.

I wish I had more time to talk with Aunt Patricia and with Uncle Ray. It was such a treat to see the both of them. There was so much going on that day that I wish we could have made the day longer so we got more time with everyone there. I feel like I barely had a chance to say hello to Sandi (Hello Sandi!) and to Mike.

In the picture above the kids are playing pick-up-sticks. Who knew PJ would be so darn good at the game, I think we may have surgeon in the family when that girl grows up.

Aunt Patricia, I promise I will make sure that kids are not all grown up next time you see them. Ten years is way to long in between visits. I find that seeing everyone for short a time makes me miss you all so much more now that I am home.

Sugar can be a pistol with grown ups. But she is so good with kids. I think she appreciated her adjustment, too. She knows kids are good for "cookies" and mints and lots of pets.

Hello to you to Kelly...just love the kids with Sugar. Just not sure who had more fun the kids or the horse. It was wonderful to see you.. Sandi

I love the pictures! I'd heard about how the kids enjoyed leading the horse around. It's nice to actually see the smiles on their faces while doing it.

Lotsa love to you all....Aunt Patricia

Next time I'm at the ranch I need to spend more "Sugar" time. I barely got to play with the horses 'cause I was so excited to see all the humans.
