Bobbing for apples
Saturday, October 24, 2009
I just came back from a Halloween party at the barn where my daughter rides. They had a costume contest on horseback--too cute. Addie (Cleopatra) got second place. Then they had relay races with ponies. They had one lead-liner, one walker, one trotter, and one canterer on each team. They did an egg and spoon race, one where they had to ride down and put a little pumpkin in a bucket, and one where the horse had to bob for apples. It was an absolute riot!! If I ever get as technologically competent as GinaKay or SusieReardon, I'll put the pictures and video on here...
As an aside, I have been battling my bad behavior (eating and drinking) on the weekends. I lose weight during the week and gain on the weekend only to stay about the same for over a month. I realize this is not a true plateau but I'm out to bust it. Being good all weekend--I swear!
