We had great weather and a visit from Adam and Ashley to further brighten up the occasion.
Adam (a.k.a. Bambino) and Ashley are off to Japan in August so it was great to spend some time with them both. Luckily they are only an hour away from each other in cities close to Kobe and Osaka.
While they were here they bravely went for a ride in the bull arena with SWMBO; not on bulls but on Meg. Ashley had never been on a horse and did well to stay on Meg who is so round that the saddle slips under her if the rider isn't careful. Adam has been on a horse before - when he was about 7 or 8.
SWMBO tried gamely to interest all of the chuldrun in horse riding and so they all had lessons at various times when they were nippers. Only DLG (a.k.a. Jade) managed to stick though.
Anyway - it was a beautiful start of winter on Saturday down at our place so we all headed to the bull arena on our neighbour's property for a ride.
