Polo Benefit and Father's Day

This weeekend I traveled to Harrisburg for a Benefit Polo match that my sister and brother-in-law were involved with...it was amazing and great weather too!!!!!!!!!
Also, when there, as a family we celebrated father's day as we have BY FAR the best father in the U.S.A. (I may be biased)!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are the pics!!!!!!!!!

Parking pass.... Program for the match...
Memaw and Poppy and Ali (this is my wonderful daddy...the kids call him Poppy)...

Susie and Kyleigh - she got her face painted in the festivities tent before the match...


Scenery from the hay ride before the match...Ryan wanted nothing to do with this hay ride he stayed with Aunt Kerry and played in the grass...


Poppy and Ali on the hay ride...



All the kids (and adults) loved the Rita's !!!!! It was over 95 degrees all day!!!!!!!

Kids advertising...


Having fun under Uncle Dan's sign...

Ryan loved Poncho the goat!!!!!

After Ryan left Poncho was looking for him (maybe he loved Ryan too?!?!?)



Horses - are they not absolutely beautiful!?!?!?! They shave their mane on their necks so that the polo mallet does not get caught in it.


Part of the crew under the tent...


Ali watching the "horsies play"...

Let's play Polo..........they also braid the tails so that the mallets do not not get caught.


There are alot of blurry game pictures...I need photography lessons - LOL!!!! Luckily I got a few clear ones....oh well, I tried.....


Festivites tent (face painting, hair painting, Ritas, etc.)










Ryan...
Ali...


Kyleigh...
Kyleigh funny face...love this little girl!!!!!!!!




After the day was done, the kids were sooooo tired....they just
tipped over and slept....


All in all it was another amazing weekend with family!!!!!
Thanks to all the dads out there that are father's to their children!!!
Thanks to both of my brothers-in law and my brother for being amazing and loving fathers!!
The biggest thanks of all to my Dad!!!!
Hands down....The best dad in the world!!!!!!!!!!!
