Well, really my birthday is on Tuesday, but my hub "surprised" me, wisked me away, and took me down to Southern Utah for a weekend getaway. He planned this horseback riding tour. It was great. We rode up to the top of a cliff and back. This was my hubs first horseback riding experience. I was pretty impressed, he didn't fall off or anything. (well, he almost fell off, but he didn't.)
I tried to tell my hub that the bright yellow canary colored sweatshirt would scare the horses, and he actually bought it, but then I felt guilty and told him that I was really worried more about the cowboy tour guides kicking us off the ranch when he walked up in his bright yellow AE sweatshirt and his expensive loafer dress shoes (they said to wear something with a heel, so he did). Anyway, we had a great time and I really do love my hub.

After a long, three hour horseback ride we headed over to the Sky Ridge B&B for some much needed R&R in the hot tub, as well as some much needed Benadryl. (After I broke out in hives from the horses.)

Then on Saturday we drove through the Capital Reef National Park and took in the beautiful scenery. We would have hiked through it, except I am still gimping around on my injured calf muscle and we both had some seriously sore bums from galloping down the mountain on Big Ben and Dante (our horsies).

We couldn’t believe our luck when we almost got pulled over on the way there AND the way back. It seemed like this cop had it in for us; like he was just waiting for us to get caught in his little speed trap ……..
.......OR WAS HE?????

Hey, jamigibb, get a profile pic, wouldja! ;) You won't look quite as creepy that way. I can pick one for you if you want.

I just added you to my sidebar. Let me know if you DON'T want the exposure. I can't remember my password to my family blog (HOW LAME IS THAT) so I can't add you there. I told blogger I needed to know my password and they told me they'll send it to my email, but if I don't know my password I can't get into my email so DILEMMA!
