Cowboy Up!

It was a cowboy kind of day yesterday.

Littlest Buckaroo wears his gun belt and hat the majority of the day and Little Buckaroo decided he would indulge his brother by tearing himself away from his trains and play cowboy with him.

Whoa horse!

Our dog Lucky is a little, let's call him, um, wild. However, he is pretty patient at times with the buckaroos. This is about as far as the "horse" riding went. Lucky ran off in a tizzy wondering why in the world that kid would try to get on his back.
That did not stop Little Buckaroo, he improvised with his stick horse on his bike. It was a little hard to turn left since the stick was blocking his handle bars, but it was fun for him to ride around in a circle.

I feel very safe with the Buckaroo's on duty. Little Buckaroo is very serious about his job of protecting the homestead.

Littlest Buckaroo just likes to shoot at everything. The dog, mules in the pasture, goats, vehicles, nothing is safe. He even shoots me and then says "I shoot the princess" (what his daddy calls me), however he does apologize right after he shoots me. A cowboy with manners, you can't beat that.

A good friend of mine that I used to work with BB (Before Buckaroos) is driving to see us today with her children. Her son is bringing some old football pads for Little Buckaroo to wear while they throw the football. From cowboy one day to football player the next, he is so diverse.

Have a wonderful day,
The Park Wife

Love that first pic of the buckaroos. It brings back memories of when my boys were that little and loved to play cowboys. My oldest wore his hat and guns and red handkerchief around his neck everyday that I would let him.
It is wonderful to see their imaginations going.
Blessings on your family,

That first picture need to be a Christmas Card, it is so cute. Good job in Photoshop.

I love all these pictures! Those boys are blessed to be growing up together and having fun every day. My brother and I played "Cowboys" as we grew up. (He was 5 years older than me and was my protector)

It is good to see the boys playing outside and having good old fashioned fun. No electronic games in their hands 24 hours per day. (That's good!)

Have fun with your friends during their visit, "Princess."

I remember playing cowgirl. This really takes me back! I never tried to ride the dog though. If it had been bigger I probably would have though!
