Aaron is pulling himself to standing! He did it last night, and I thought it was a fluke, so I set him up again this morning, and he duplicated the action before the camera! 1....2...3...4!
I'm a bit surprised by this, because he just began sitting up about 3 weeks ago. I'm a bit CONCERNED by this, because he lacks the sense to hang on once he's standing! ;)
Here's our family before we hiked the "M" in Missoula a few weeks ago.

The Event At Rebecca Farm
We were in Kalispell with Adrian for work last week, so I was pleased to take the kids to this World Cup horsemanship event! The weekend consisted of Dressage, Cross Country and Show Jumping (an equestrian triathlon). I LOVED IT!!
When I first arrived, I found several "warm up" arenas, and spotted one horse rearing in the background:

This picture shows how close spectators were to the action: notice the horse running up hill just in front of us:
The jump was right next to us, too:
Neat, neat! I have a renewed hope that someday we'll have horses ... even if I'm not competing at this level, it will be wonderful to have them around!
