The Kids

Kate, Tucker, and Rudy, on a walk at the Whidbey Island dog park.

More pictures of my wonderful kids, Tucker, Kate, and Will, including pictures of them participating in the fabulously fun sport of patterned horse racing (gaming) on our darling Quarter Horses, including our O-Mok-See Champion saddle winners, Sugar, Joey, and Wave.

Here is a slideshow Kate put together and gave me for mother's day. I love that not only are my kids as much photograpers as I am, but that Kate loves making iMovies, too. Love those Macs. :) Enjoy, I cried!

Riding on the Tolt Pipeline Trail outside our house on a cold day in January. The Cascade Mountains are to the East.

We are pleased to note that this is our fifth year gaming, and we're enjoying working hard to become competitive participants at not just the local shows, but this year even the o-mok-sees. Kate and Will both won the trophy saddles at the Pacific NW Championship O-Mok-See in Sept. '07, and I was third! Actually, Kate and Will have won five saddles in '07, and I won one in 2008. Come see pics of the kids, great riders that they have become, going real fast and getting some "big air," and of me, hanging on for dear life. We also have some movies of a few of our runs. Our trip to Hawaii with my parents is in slideshow format, along with Kenny Chesney to set the mood. It was heavenly, but it is one of those huge, slow-loading files.
