  2. thank you carla! so glad you enjoyed the photos. maybe it's because i was born on halloween, but i absolutely love the costumes as well. to think of the skill it takes to ride a horse, never mind an obstacle course in a time trial and shooting at balloons moving at high rates of speed. it's an art for sure!
