We went to Naomi and Jerry's for supper last night and while we were there we just had to take a few pictures of Meadow! She was busy smiling at Grampa and was in such a good mood that we just kept snapping away. When I went to download the pictures today, there were more than 130 pictures of her!!!!! Granted, we had the camera on continuous shoot for awhile so you can see her smile progress right across her face in the course of about 6 pictures. I'm going to have to do some serious editting! But for now , here are some of my favorites.
I love this one of her and Mommy!! Aren't they a beautiful pair?!
Jerry does this horsey ride thing with her that is just too cute! She sits on his knee and he bounces her around while doing this hilarious rodeo radio announcer routine.
"Now entering the ring on her pony Sunny is Meadow Drebert, the youngest competitor at this year's Stampede. Grampa Bob brought her down in the trailer today. She has her pony stabled at his place you know. Now her first lap is just a warmup but ladies and gentlemen she is looking mighty fine tonight. Give a little wave to Mommy as you go by there. And now we're off and running in tonight's barrel racing. Here she goes around the first barrel (as Meadow leans way to one side on his knee) and now she's rounding the second barrel(as she leans the other way). Oh, that was a close one. And she's coming down hard to the final barrel and she's around. Now bring that pony home, Meadow! There she is with a time of 16.7 seconds. Not her best ride of the year but a pretty good time nevertheless for such a young rider. Yes sirree, she'll be back again real soon. We'll be watching for this rider at the next Buck Lake Stampede. Give a wave to Mommy and let's hear a round of applause for Meadow!!!"
We were all in stitches laughing so hard and Meadow was loving it! If he stops, she starts fussing until he finishes!
She had a very good cuddle with Grampa when she first woke up. He hadn't seen her for more than a week so he got lots of time with her, especially at first when she was so happy. Those sweet baby smiles can sure lighten the cares of the world!
