Temps in the mid-70's. Light breeze and puffy clouds. Housework done. Schoolwork done. What to do, what to do...? Head to the farm!
The real fun began when the boys could scratch Oliver the pig and feed all the goats, sheep, llamas, and ponies. They have no inhibitions with animals and it took several quiet reminders to Grady Lee that not all animals like to be hugged.
After visiting all the animals, we got in line for a short pony ride. Micah climbed up first and gave a loud "Giddyup!" which produced nothing out of the cute, but weary-looking, pony.
After all that waiting, it was time for Annalyse to finally take her turn in the saddle! I have never seen anything cuter - melt my heart darlingness! The helmet was entirely too big for her, which only made her look that much cuter. She took her ride very serious, sitting very still with one hand on the horn of the saddle and the other hand gently petting the mane, all the while saying, "Neigh! Neigh!" again and again. Come on, let's hear it: cute!
