A local pony farm opens up their grounds once in year in June to the community and offers all sorts of fun, free activities. Last year it was quite crowded but totally worth it. We went today anticipating it to be the same and were pleasantly surprised. Plenty of people were there but just the right amount that lines weren't long at all. That is great when you have two antsy toddlers to contend with.
All week we had been talking about going and Jaxson said he wouldn't be riding a pony because he was too little and too scared. He wouldn't last year, either. I figured if he saw his little sissy doing it then he would give it a go. Nope, not the case. He waited outside the fencing with daddy and waved Kendra on.
I knew from the get go that she would hop right on (all week she kept saying ," I ride pony") and that she did. She was entranced the whole time and she even yelled out "I 'm a cowboy!". hehe it was so cute. Everything was all great until it was time to get off of MoonBeam. Kendra had a meltdown. She kept clutching the reins and sobbing. She didn't want her turn to be over.
Jaxson was a little hard to catch to take photos. He was all over the place. Between the ponies, the huge pond full of ducks and geese, and the covered wagons he was having a great time.
