Sweet Pea's First Pony Ride

Mommy took the girls to a nearby hometown fair.  They opened the kids area early for kids with disabilities and it was wonderful!  We were able to do one of the bounce houses with Sweet Pea before too many other kids came along and made it unsafe for her.

Sweet Pea stared down Minnie Mouse for quite a while:

After the bounce house we went over to the ponies and Sweet Pea had her first pony ride.  They strap the kids in fairly securely and so no one needed to be right next to her.  This made me worry that she would freak out, but she did really well.  I'm not sure what she was thinking, but I think she had fun.  She was glad it ended when it did, but it was a long ride and so I can't blame her for that.

She could sense the excitement:

She looks so small next to the ponies!  I can't imagine how tiny she would look next to an actual horse!

Look hand!

Signing horse:

She's a natural:

I fear that a not too distant Christmas list will include a pony!

It was a fun morning and we will be making sure it's on our calendar for next year when Sweet Pea and Angel will be able to do even more!
