Last weekend the girls were invited to a birthday party at a stable. With Horses. Big horses. This was worrisome a little to me. Visions of 2 hysterically crying little girls thrashing about on top of a horse were threatening my excitement for the dear little girl whose birthday we were to celebrate. Last year D & W were both given opportunity for the slowest horse ride ever and they both turned it down flat. But this time they told me they were going to do it and were all fired up about it.
They did great! After D got off her horse she said, "Mommy, I want a horse!" To which I sadly informed her that our tiny yard could not possibly support one. She then told me, "Then I want to live here!" Not to worry, she still resides with us:)
