Baby Photo Shoot

My friend recently had a baby girl. I was so excited for her. Babies are so much fun! I love their little hands and toes. They are just so sweet. Soon after she had her baby, I asked her if I could take pictures of her baby. I haven't ever done an infant photo shoot before so her baby was going to be my guinea pig. She said I could and I did. Here are some of the pictures from my first baby photo shoot. That last one is one of my top favorites! It was my first time shooting a baby and I had fun. I learned some different techniques for shooting babies. They are different than shooting horses!

The Two Yellow Girls

I have two very beautiful "Yellow Girls" in my life. I love them both dearly. They both have unruly manes. Cowpokette has this mane that just grows and grows. This Yellow Girl's Mane is just wild. It probably would help if I would brush it every now and then. Luna is terribly dirty. She has a Stable-Lyx in her pasture and she is so messy with it. But those two Yellow Girls just have something. They have this connection. When Cowpokette sees Luna coming she gets so excited. Cowpokette is horse crazy. I am loving it!! It's so sweet. "Come here and let me pet you!!" "Just a bit lower......pleeeaaaassseee!!" "Ahhhhhhh, she let me touch her!!!!" It's so wonderful to see how much Cowpokette really loves the babies. She helps me feed them every morning and she has to scratch them on their cheeks while they munch on their grain. I think Luna loves the attention she gets from Cowpokette. Mr. Cowboy says that Luna is going to be Cowpokette's Break Away Roping horse. Mr. Cowpoke has some nice dreams. But when the time comes, I don't think Luna will mind taking Cowpokette around the arena. I think Luna likes her. Either that or she thinks Cowpokette's hair is hay! hee hee. I love my two Yellow Girls. And you too, Josephine.

Pumpkin Chucking and Craft!

I know, one last Cub Scout Camp Out post, I promise, then it's more fun pictures of ponies and kids. Saturday evening there was a pumpkin chucking contest. But before all that fun, the boys did a Monster Craft after lunch.
Big Cowpoke put muscles on his monster. At first I thought he had drawn boobs on his monster, but he told me that it was his Monster's six back. The boy is obsessed with muscles right now. He asked for some weights so he could work out! Ha ha ha!!! Later in the evening it was time for the pumpkin chucking!! The kids brought their own pumpkins and tried to toss them into a canoe out on the lake. Little Cowpoke was very excited about tossing his pumpkin into the canoe. Big Cowpoke didn't want to participate, so he went off and played somewhere else. It was a pretty far toss for a little cowpoke. But he tried his hardest. And into the water his pumpkin went. It was alright, Little Cowpoke was very excited about throwing the pumpkin. It didn't matter if it got into the canoe or not. Good job Little Cowpoke! Then Mr. Cowboy helped a boy in our Pack to toss in a bigger pumpkin. It was a big one, they had to both hold onto it and toss it in! And there it goes......... And in the canoe it went! Yep, they made that big pumpkin into the canoe! After the pumpkin tossing there was a Pack that made a pumpkin launcher! It was so cool! All the kids sat around and cheered on the pumpkin launching!! It was so fun! All the while, Big Cowpoke was playing with tree bark and made himself a little boat. I know now what to get the kid for Christmas, sticks and tree bark! Ha ha ha!! After the fun we had the option to go to an outdoor church service or go for a little hike. Big Cowpoke went with a friend to the outdoor service while Mr. Cowboy and I took Little Cowpoke for a walk. This was the church service and my sad attempt at getting some sun rays in the picture. I need to learn how to do that and get the f stop thing going. I will get it down though. Then there was our walk. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. I am so pretty when I don't get to take a shower! Just look at that camping glow! He seems to glow a bit more then I do! We came across some cool looking boxes! They were up in the trees! They are bat boxes! I am glad nothing came flying out of them!! YIKES! Pretty berries. Wild flowers. Wild boys! The boys had more energy the entire weekend! Pumpkins floating out on the lake. After that long walk Little Cowpoke was thirsty! Then we went to a fun bonfire and sang our Pack Camp song for everyone! It was a lot of fun. There was a haunted house put on by the boy scouts, which was fantastic!! The boys LOVED it. We then went back to our camp site and made smores. It was a perfect way to end our weekend camping trip! There was never a dull moment, that's for sure!
