As February draws to a close,
what better way to end the month
by reflecting back on some moments of sweetness......
Luke the Duke's Boy Scout den met up at the ranch
to visit Robbie the horse....

Robbie loves children and is always
willing to give a few horse kisses
in exchange for some carrots!
Don't you just love him?

Luke won not one, but
two prize drawings on Saturday
with competition games being played
with a Star Wars theme!
Piper is always, always ready to be right in the middle of things!

Piper now knows how to give
"High Fives!"

She also talks......
silly girl....

Cat had her niece, Halee come to stay for the day
and Halee is always willing to help clean up at Liz's ranch.
This little cutie pie calls Liz, her grandmother, Marmee!
Don't you just love that?
In honor of the novel, Little Women.
That is Liz's beloved rescue dog, Apache, in the background.
He is absolutely a beautiful dog!

Once the ranch was all spruced up,
it was time for lunch on the patio!
Looks like Miss Halee did a little sidewalk 
chalk art for sweet Franz!

Miss Mae has been enjoying birdwatching these days...
always sophisticated....always regal!
There is a common thread running here....
how much love and joy animals bring to our lives.
We have been out in the garden, planting spring bulbs
on this warm, lovely February weekend.
I'm ready to welcome March
with some fabulous recipes...
y'all have a good one! 


  1. Such a nice post. The horse does look gentle. I some times wish pets could talk. LOL. My daughter's old cat frisky, gone now many years...would sit on the window sill and make quirky noises to the birds. Loved your photos. Blessings for a fabulous day. xoxo, Susie

  2. Animals do bring so much to our lives! I've noticed surprise lily and daffodil leaves shooting up of late...my favorite time of the year.

  3. Precious animals. And precious children.

    And of course! Precious Miss Mae...

    Your spring has sprung. Not so up here! ,-)

  4. Hi Betsy! Oh, I love seeing all of these precious animals! and the kiddoes too! Thanks for popping in to see me and hope you've had a good weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Everyone has a smile on their face when they are interfacing with animals...That sure says a lot, Betsy! Such a sweet post! ♥

  6. That horse just looks precious!

  7. Such pretty pictures of happy times and happy people!

  8. Love the animal photos--next to kids...they're my favorite. Happy Memories, dear friend, XOXO
