4th of July

We spent the 4th of July up at the cabin with Skyler's family. His brother Jesse just got home from a mission a couple weeks ago and it was his first time going to the cabin since he has been home. We had a lot of fun! The weather was perfect! We went on a lot of 4-wheel rides. Our longest one was one we took to a creek and we got out and let Josie and Nate play in it. They loved it and didnt want to get out! We went up to brian head to watch the firework show which was so good! Skylers family has 4 horses and I got on a horse for the first ever which may suprise some people considering I am from Texas and most people think I rode on a horse to school. That was not the case...I was a city girl. I was nervous especially since Skylers dad was breaking in a horse right before I got on mine and I saw him get bucked off a few times. Needless to say I survived and it was fun. I felt like a little kid again especially since my neice (who just turned 2) was riding the horse by herself a couple of minutes before I rode. Oh well everyone has to be a beginner at some point :) Nate loves the horses and has to ride them with daddy everytime we are there! I love it...he is our little cowboy! We also had a horseshoe tourny. Skyler and I were partners and horseshoes is definitely not something we are good at! Even though we lost every game we still had fun. We love going to the cabin and always make such good memories when we are there! Skyler took a lot of pictures on his phone when we were up there that I havent been able to put on the computer yet so I only have a few to post.
