We survived the 4th too. The neighborhood fireworks always have me on edge. The first year we moved here, I thought the horses were going to bust the fence down. They were freaking out! This is our 4th year here though and other than picking up their head every now and then, they could have cared less. I gave them a double dose of hay to keep them busy at the very back of their massive overhang. I was proud how well they handled it. I'm hoping that our trail riding in traffic and hauling them to different events has helped desensitize them too. I think I'm going to sign my daughters and I up for the local town summer parade in 2 weeks. I haven't ridden in a parade since I tried out for rodeo queen in highschool LOL. It should be fun. :)

We also survived the fourth. I'm proud of my pups, especially Pippi. She freaks at a thunderstorm, so I was worried about the fireworks, but they didn't phase her a bit. I even took her to the Fireworks on Main event in downtown Rowlett, and the crowds, noise, and kids crawling all over her didn't bother her one bit.

*celebratory dance*

Happy belated Fourth of July to everyone!

That's great, BKLD!

I'm looking forward to our little trip to the Dallas area next weekend. The furthest I've been since the meetup last year has been Houston -- for Dr appts. I'm so looking forward to going somewhere and just enjoying myself..

Y'all will no doubt have a fantabuloso time! I can't go - I get only so many trips per year by myself and I've exhausted my passes. No one wants a party goer to show up with kids - if you disagree, I know you are just being nice and I appreciate it but I would NEVER crash a party with a 4 year old in tow. I wouldn't want anyone to do it to me. LOL!

I'm good for a day trip, but Dallas is a bit far and I wouldn't be able to get all the visiting in that I'd want to do. I'd want to see DB's horses for sure and do a few other things. I can't wait to see/hear all about it!

Clippityclop is finally getting to spend some time in the saddle!
