When I decided (or rather, was pulled...kicking and screaming) to take some time off of blogging, I had no idea how much I would miss my bloggity friends! But I had gotten to a point where I really needed to take some time off and focus on some things a little closer to home.
But now, as promised and long-overdue, I wanted to share some pictures with you all of our trip down to my parent's house in Tennessee right after Christmas:
This is Bonnie, one of their Morabs. She was so gentle with all the kids. Ben took a little time to get to know her before taking a ride in the barn. Lily took the next turn, with her Pop staying close beside her just in case:
Then came Kate's turn. We were all a little worried that she would be scared, but it turned out we had the opposite problem. We couldn't get her off. She would have ridden all day if we would have let her:
For those of you familiar with Kate's "outfits," you might notice she has on a dress over jeans...that's my girl. I'm not sure who was having more fun, Kate or Pop...
When Kate finally got distracted by the barn cats, Ben and Lily got the chance to get one more ride in before heading back to Nana's house:
(Mommy managed to sneak in a quick ride too, but it was feeding time, and Bonnie let me know in no uncertain terms that she was more interested in the food than hauling me around!)
