Horseback riding

I don’t think we could have picked a more perfect day for a nice horseback ride out in the desert! The weather was amazing today! Poor Kenny was still fighting a pretty bad cold (even took Friday off), but was feeling good today.

After a nice big breakfast at IHOP, Kenny drove Becky, Donna and I out to MacDonald Ranch in Scottsdale so we could all cash in our Groupons. This was Donna’s first time on a horse which was pretty exciting. She ended up with a pretty naughty horse (just like herself!) who wanted to wander off the trail often. It made for a lot of laughs for the rest of us. Becky’s horse knew a special trick where he could sneeze out of both ends at the same time… poor Kenny was behind them. I am not the biggest fan of trail rides, since you kind of just trout along and don’t really get to do much on the horse, but as far as trail riding goes this was a really good one.

We saw an owl living in a Hawk nest, heard stories from our trail guide and pretty much just laughed a lot.

I couldn't resist taking a picture of Donna's horse peeing... She was laughing so hard it was contagious!
