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.
