Pony Ride!

Laura and I went to Joann's today but we got there about 8:45 and they didn't open until 9am. I thought Laura could run up and down the sidewalk while we were waiting so I got her out of the car. We walked a few car lenths from the store and there were two ponies tied to a trailer being brushed! We walked over to speak to the groom and he was getting them brushed and ready to go to a pre-school for a visit. Laura got to pet the pony and touch their hair and tail. Then the owner came over and asked if Laura wanted a ride! I said Yes! so he saddled up one of the ponies and walked her around the parking lot for a minute. After we got out of the store we called Joel and Laura told him all about the horse she rode! Then we called Papa, who grew up on the farm, and Laura told him about riding the horse! What a fun morning!
