The Best Family Portrait Ever

You know, people have told me before that Lyra, our 2 1/2 year old daughter, should go into modeling.

Having been in that industry myself (a long, long, LONG time ago), I'm not in a great hurry to get her into show biz.

However, there is another family member who needs an agent, ASAP.

Yesterday, the temperatures rose from -12 in the morning (I wish I were joking) to a warm and toasty 25. We practically got out our flip flops and sunblock, we were so excited. Instead, we all went riding!

Lyra loves riding, and she rides Siggy, our 16 year old OTTB. She's got great natural balance and tells Sig to walk, halt, and points out parts of his body. I took the time to snap some photos, because, well, that's what a Mom does.

And then this happened.
I have no words.

Sig always mugs for the camera, but this brings it to a whole new level.

My brother Jay and good friend Ann suggested I make a meme of this photo, and thus begins my crash course in funny memes! Ann started the fun:
Meme credit to Ann Leary!

Then I got started.... (click on the photos to enlarge them)

I like this one since Siggy's sire was a Derby and Preakness winner!

Truth.

Yes, I have that on video.

One for my eventing buddies

This one is my favorite....because this is real life with a toddler, folks.

And that's what happens on a random Wednesday, here at Thunder Moon Farm. I expect Hollywood will be ringing us shortly.
