Flint Hills Trail Ride and Camping Trip

We went camping and trail riding over the holiday weekend. It was a fun, relaxing time. We went with Chris's mom and dad, brother Brent and nephew Gavin. Chris and the girls and I stayed in a tent (i didn't get a picture of that) and the girls did fabulous. This was Lauryn's first camping trip and probably the first one Kailey remembers. We took her to the mountains and camped out when she was 6 months old. Anyway, the weekend went very well! It was really hot and not a lot of shade but we had a creek nearby to cool off in. That was a life saver. The girls both loved it and Kailey thought it was pretty fun getting to swim in her clothes. Chris was able to ride for 2 days and I am glad! He loves to be in the saddle and does not get to do it as often as he would like. It is a big stress reliever for him. How that is possible, I'll never know, but I am glad he has an out. I enjoyed being outside and with family and away from the stresses of life! Lauryn is not too sure about the horses but Kailey is going to make quite the pretty little cowgirl. Thanks mom and dad for inviting us!
