Family time

So we have a saddle that fits!  The stonewall was a success, now I just need time to ride in it... Hoping for a fall ride, 50 maybe?

So far September has been busy with family stuff - The first is my oldest's birthday and his party was the following weekend.  The next day we took off for our first family vacation in 3.5years.  We had originally planned to go to Asheville around the Biltmore Hope for Horses ride, but our vacation time needed and left demanded that we go the week before and use the Labor Day 'free' day to our advantage (and then there was not riding anymore consideration due to saddle fit).

I found a nice little house on Home-Away to rent south of town in Hendersonville, each kid had their own room, there was a playset and hammock out back, even a hot tub :) Unfortunately it was right outside the youngest's bedroom so we didn't get to use it.  We had a lot planned, but day with no plans too so when rain came we just changed things up a bit.

Kids seemed to have had a lot of fun, and Skyler did great for the first time away from home (other than her hospital stint).

Now we are home :)  Tomorrow hope to visit Tesla, maybe even ride a bit or least get the saddle on and a few pictures and take him for a hike after lunging.  He's been off for 4w now and the body worker said he felt really good this last session (while I was away) and hoping we get the Chiro out soon.

Then on Monday the youngest turns 3!  Her party is next weekend, then maybe things will get back to normal?

A few pictures of the fun we had...
