This & That

Well, its that time of year again....the TN Walking Horse National Celebration is here!!  I know to some of you that means nothing but if you are not from TN let me help you out just a bit....the TWHNC is a HUGE deal for Shelbyville this is the 72nd year for 250,000 people to flood in the outdoor arena for what we call the "horseshow"!  It is such a big deal that the schools in the county close for the whole week.  This event brings in so much money to our town, in more ways than one.  From people renting their houses out, hotels, resturants, people working at the show doing security, ushering, the civic clubs and the list goes on and on.  It is espically important to my family as Kris {my husband} is the groundskeeper.  He works very hard to make sure that the grounds are just perfect but espically the center ring.  There is so much maintance and work that goes into the center ring to keep it beautiful.  And in my opinion Kris is AWESOME......

....that grass oval has to be cut out perfectly, mowed and the painted daily.  
Lots of people hate to see the horse show come every year and hate the traffic but that is just how it is 10 days prior to Labor Day every year.  We are very thankful for the horse business and to that we say, "Let Walk On!!"

On a different note, I promised I would update on ~ what Kara Brooke has been up to and I was waiting until I had a good picture of her BUT today you get to see the real KB in action!!  I go in her room to find her looking like this....


...ummm yes, that my friends is butt paste!  She obviously thought it was lotion!!!



And since we are talking about this little mess, here is her "big" girl bed.



She is in a toddler bed for right now and she loves it!  Is it just me or does everything look so high up on her walls?  I guess it is since it was over the crib and the changing table and that bed is so tiny...oh well just noticed that.  It will be fine when her "BIG" girl furniture gets in there.  
Oh and uhhhh....where's Waldo...I mean Kara Brooke???
