The Cowgirl Way

We went to a really cool first Birthday Party for my nephew's twin boys.  It was rodeo theme and had a lot for the girls to do.  They of course wanted to wear their cowboy boots they received for Christmas.  They look so adorable in them.  They would wear them 24/7 if they could.
Hope really took to roping.  Her uncle spent some time showing her how to set up her rope, swing it, and throw it.  She spent most of her two hours right here, ya know...roping.  She was fairly good at it.  She managed to rope the horns just enough times to keep her interested in doing it more.  Needless to say, she would really like one of these roping dummies in her own backyard.
I love her look of concentration.  I happen to think she is a natural.  But, I am her mother ;)
Hope has told us recently, "My life long dream is to ride a horse."  Don't tell but someone has a birthday coming up and that dream will come true!  :)
And then there is Love...who is perfectly pleased with her cupcake.
And a sit and pose on the dummy.
Here the girls are waiting for the "cattle drive."  I think it may be a bit overrated.  It was basically taking about 30 Longhorns and pushing them down part of the street.  Think Six Flags gun show, except no guns, no noise, less time and way less exciting.
Well, then we called it a day, pardner!

What a fun day! My boys love cowboy boots, too, but they just don't seem as natural here as they do in your town!
