Ten on Tuesday [No.65]

Y'all, we are finally into March & I honestly just feel like this year is going to snowball from this point forward and we'll be into Summertime and then Fall and Christmastime will be here before we even know what happens-time just flies as you get older!
There are so many good things I want to share with you in this roundup, so let's jump right on in.
A moment I've waited a long, long time for finally arrived last month. . .
Charlie's first ride!
The video is only 21 seconds long and it's so sweet, I recommend listening with the volume on.
Charlie has technically been on a horse before, but never really by himself like this and never ridden around. He was just thrilled and since then, every time we're at my parents (where I currently keep my horses) he wants to go see the horses and pet them and really, really wants to ride again.
Living. The. Dream. Y'all!
Our little family got to have a mini getaway a few weekends ago to Mobile for the Alabama Young Farmers Conference and it was just so much fun!
This was the second year we were able to have Charlie there & taking him along and making those memories is just so special to us-we love raising him around the Farmer's Federation events.
 Of course we stopped at Priester's along the way!

 Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville is the Farmer's Federation FARMPAC endorsed candidate, so we snapped a quick picture alongside him at the conference. He's a really cool guy that we're glad we have gotten the opportunity to know better and to support for AL senate.
 Riverfront rooms are just the BEST!
Also peep his cute propped up foot-I just could cuddle him forever, y'all!
We loved the family time, of course, but we also were so thankful to get together with some of our friends that we only see at Federation events, meet new friends, tour some really interesting agricultural operations, and network with other people in our field that have the same heartbreaks and successes that we have!
I love to watch Jenna & Hoda on tv in the mornings when I can, they just have such a cute dynamic and I love so many of the stories they share on their show.
One of my most recent favorites is when they shared the Instagram account Accidental Icon.
She is a beautiful, older woman who used to be a college professor & was once accidentally mistaken as a model and the paparazzi began photographing her.
After that happened she started her website/instagram and became a true Icon!
She is beautiful and such an inspiration!
Alabama's weather has been so strange lately, with cold snaps & then super warm temps, plus all the rain that we have had to contend with. I'm not complaining about the warmer weather though because we have gotten to enjoy some time outside playing without having to be bundled up.
We've even had some flowers blooming & lots of growth in the hayfields so we are loving it!
P.S. Doesn't Charlie look like such a big boy in the pic above?!
Another fun thing we got to take Charlie to do last month was the trade show at the Alabama Cattlemen's Convention!
There we were able to network and visit with our friends from all over the state, but Charlie also just had a complete ball playing on the John Deere equipment and horsing around with the chutes and panels.
We took Charlie to the zoo a few weekends ago (& also to the state capital which was so fun!) and y'all, he enjoyed it SO much.
The tiger was his (& my) favorite, and since we went on a Sunday there was no one there. We were able to sit and just watch the tiger for the longest time, Charlie didn't want to leave him!
This was technically Charlie's second time to the polls to vote with us, but this time he was big enough to get a sticker. We love sharing the democratic process with him and teaching him how important it is to have a voice in politics!
There has been lots of horse activity going on around here because the weather is getting a little bit better & Charlie is getting old enough now to really enjoy them, so I've been able to get back to it a little bit more.
I even jumped on Willow the other day after Charlie's ride. I was so sore for the next few days 😂 but it was worth it!
Charlie has had tons of farm fun lately; from splashing in puddles to climbing up on the back of my truck (with help, of course!)

Just had to do a quick photo-dump of some of the cutest pics of Charlie since my last Ten on Tuesday post!
Sitting on the toolbox like a teenage guy.
Waiting on a bale of hay while Daddy changes a tire...also War Eagle!
And then sitting in the cotton seed while all of his friends eat it 🐮
He's already trying to fill his Daddy's boots-slow down, sweet boy!

Until next time. . .
