RBC video

Here's a video of me and Buddy doing barrels at the rodeo at Rodeo Bible Camp. A slow time, but he did a great job, for learning everything in just 4 days!! :-)

For sake of a smaller size for the video so I could upload it, I had to cut off the first part, where Buddy decided as soon as we made it through the gate that he wanted to go back out with his friends. So we did a bunch of circles before starting our run. :-) It was his first rodeo ever, so he was a little nervous...

Rodeo Bible Camp 2011

Well, it's that time of year again! Last week from Sunday, June 5 to Thursday, June 9 was Rodeo Bible Camp. I should have more pictures pretty soon, from the official photographers for the week, but these are the few that my sister snapped for me the day of the rodeo (Thursday). I didn't take my horse, Velvet, because of a horse virus going around, but I rode a horse that was there already. This is Buddy, a 3-year-old colt who had never seen a barrel pattern before last Monday. He did an amazing job, and was very willing to learn!

Although he's half as old as Velvet, Buddy is just a tad bit taller. He's a sweetie-pie, too- by the second day of Camp, he was coming over to see me at the gate of his stall as soon as I walked in the other end of the barn!I'll post more pictures as soon as I get them! :-)

Random Pictures

I haven't posted in so long, that I have quite a little stock of pictures just waiting to be posted! So, here's a typical random photo post... :-)


Strawberry coffee milkshake- yum!! :-)



It's been raining a lot in Kansas- goes right along with all the tornadoes we've been having here in the Midwest...


A cute little chipmunk decided to come visit... :-)


My cat Midnight was keeping an eye on the chipmunk for us. She wasn't too happy that she couldn't get to it!


"You leave it, you lose it!"


I tried out a new recipe for Ultimate Turtle Brownies (minus the nuts) for a steak dinner at work. They turned out amazing! :-)


We found our screened-porch table like this one morning... It had happened around 11 o'clock the night before, and we all went out to investigate, but of course it was too dark for pictures, so that had to wait 'till morning. We're not sure what happened- it just collapsed! The glass of the table wasn't even sharp on the edges, really- it more of cracked internally, or something. We're guessing it must have been something in the air pressure, but don't really know what caused it to do this.

Messing with depth of field on my point-and-shoot. I can't decide which one I like better- what do you think? Do you like the table or the piece of glass in focus in these pictures?



My inquisitive horse Velvet finally stood still long enough I could get a clear picture of her :-)

Nerds- yum! :-)
