Four AM definitely felt too early to get up yesterday, but that’s what time Jenna, Whit, and I rolled out of bed at. It may have felt too early but it was definitely worth it as the three of us were getting ready to head out for the Ponoka Parade and Stampede! We all met at Heathercrest (where our boys call home), loaded up the horses and headed north. It was such a beautiful day we were all so excited to be able to be outside and on our lovely horses. It was a big honour to be invited to ride in the parade as well, as the Ponoka Stampede was celebrating their 75th anniversary. That is a huge mile stone for such an amazing event, so we felt blessed to be able to partake in their 75th parade. Kansas, Snoopy, and Hawk were all given the royal treatment the day before by having all of us wash them to perfection (and I have to say they did look awfully great.) We felt like true royalty riding on our beautiful boys and being greeted by all the fantastic people who came to watch the parade. It is moments like yesterday we will never forget.
Afterwards we had excellent tickets to the rodeo so we got to spend a sunny afternoon watching some of the best sporting action in the world. Anyone who has been in, or participated in the Ponoka Stampede will probably agree with me that life doesn’t get much better than a hot afternoon watching the Ponoka Rodeo. Being a princess sure has it’s perks!
