The Riley Smith Family
Preston, Scout Preston, & Mimi
We had a really great time. Pat, Scout, and I went up pretty early on Thursday and ran a few errands and shopped. Tandy and her boys came for the Thursday night performance. Riley, Tripp, and Autumn showed in the ranch horse competition on Friday. Riley qualified Gunner for the RHAA Finals in Abilene (May). Autumn was the only girl in her class and she placed 2nd......think we are a little proud? She did great!! Scout didn't get much of a nap, so she was too happy at the rodeo on Friday night. Brook and Kait arrived Friday afternoon so we were extra glad to seem them, but not as glad as they were to see Scooter. (Note: Only I am allowed to call her this name.....not sure if we want that to stick. Hope and her bunch call her Scootie.)

I've been forgetting to tell how the rodeo was going this whole time. Sandhill got a no time first thing on Thursday, didn't have any milk in the cowmilking on Friday.....you get the idea. They just started out on the wrong foot. By Saturday they were doing pretty well and on Sunday they kicked some hiney. We're pretty sure they set the arena record in the penning with a 34 second run.
Sooo.....we had a very full, fun weekend. We were pooped, but glad to see everyone and get away from Earth for awhile.
