Back Tracking!

It is a lovely Fall-ish morn as I type (about 50 degrees and rainy) but back in August, there was one hot dry day. A day my daughter and I look forward to each year. Chicks and Chaps, a wonderful fundraiser to help in the fight against breast cancer was our destination. We donned our pink, (Em made a sparkly skirt and a matching pocket square for me to wear) and we headed down to the Sunrise Saloon to catch the Chick Wagon to the fairgrounds. Once there, we were given our swag bags filled with treasures, and then ushered to our special party area. We got right into it and got our drinks, bought our silent auction tickets and started to party! It was such a great time and we raised a bunch of bucks for the cause. :) Always, Kit



They had dancing this year! Em taught me the two step and we had a mass dance off!
I won a prize this year! A cherry pie baking basket filled with lots of wonderful items. And Em won horse back riding lessons!
We had a great time at our "rodeo clinic" and then watching the real rodeo!
As the sun set, we always end the day with our ear of corn and we ride the Chick Wagon back to our car.

  11. A wonderful cause-kudos to you and your daughter for being part of it all. We do a breast cancer fundraising 3 mile walk every Mother's Day. Love it but not nearly as festive as this:)
