If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

A Day at the Rodeo

A sweet friend gave our family passes to the rodeo.   It has been a bit rainy here so finding the right time to go has been a challenge.  Finally, there was a break in the clouds and we went for it.

Maggie's mouth is open in most of her pictures these days because she spends most of her time telling about something.  My little talker is all sentences now.

Yep, I thought it was a goat too.  But it's not.  It's a sheep. Who knew?

Maggie begged to ride the horses and I knew Ruthie was quietly hoping.  My girls love them some horses.  After they were done, we had to make a few phone calls so Maggie could say she "rode a brown horse" with much enthusiasm.

We met some friends there and the kids had fun riding rides together.  Their mom is one of my all time favorite people so it was a sweet treat for me too.

We had a wonderful time, ate some crazy food, and wore ourselves completely out.
