Day 86: A Family AfFAIR…

It’s DEFINITLY fair time in OKLAHOMA!!! I just love this little family too so I tried to sneak in a couple pictures while the open horse show was going on.  Audrey and I have grown up together and our families are good friends.  We were all just thrilled to get to add Chad and Emma to the mix when Auda (that’s what Miss E calls her) and Chad got married for what seems like forever now!!


Just recently the world was introduced to baby Hazen and he was added to the fun.  Isn’t he a DOLL?!?!  He came to watch his sissy show and ride her horse at the County Fair and I just couldn’t help just snag a couple quick pics.


Big sister Emma was all “cowgirled up” and ready to rock-and-roll out at the Horse Show Saturday morning when then it hit….. maybe having a little too much fun at the carnival the night before caught up with her and she started feelin a little under the weather.  Darn it…..she tried SO hard to be her tough self and get on that pony but alas it just wasn’t her day to whip and ride.  The carnival food won this time. 


Good thing daddy’s can always make everything better! 🙂


I admire Audrey for her maturity and grace.  I admire her motherly instincts and abilities.  She’s a fantastic mother and picked it right up with Emma and now has Mr. H just a riding right along.  I LOVE to see pictures and hear stories of Mr. teeny tiny baby Hazen just a spittin and a getting at the ropins and along side the family at the late night events.  I appreciate that she gets her baby out to see the world, root on sister, be exposed to cooties and get dirty…..a real ROOTIN’ TOOTIN’ COWPOKE FAMILY! Cute, cute, cute!   


I admire Chad and his gentleness with both the kiddos.  I LOVE this picture.  These little wobbly-weebly head pictures I was snapping were all over the place because this baby just LOVES to watch his daddy! It was TOO cute!


This little family has a very special place in my heart and I just think they are all the CUTEST so I appreciate them letting me use them as my muse today.

Born, raised and still trying to live life as an Oklahoma cowgirl. I have a travel loving soul and I LOVE photography. My blog has started out as a place for me to post my 365 photo-a-day challenge....I have now found a love for fine art. Specifically Horse or Western Inspired Photography. I love my husband, kids, DIY projects, horses, wine, lightening, post-it notes, colored sharpie markers, trolling garage sales, baseball, cooking, shopping, working outside in the garden and living a simple country life. If you own a piece of our work you own more than just a piece of art. Thank you for supporting cowgirls. Sparkle and Spur Dustie Bill
