Savy's Surprise

Savy has been cooped up inside since Scarlett was born, so we took her to the sprinkler park late yesterday afternoon. I think she could go every day and never get tired of it.

We had an extra special surprise for her today. I didn't tell her where we were going...the suspense was killing her this morning. Her new computer distracted her for a while. Aunt Lesa gave Savy her old computer from school, and Savy loves having her very own "puter".

Here she is before we left...the hat is a hint.

She's been wanting to ride a pony for quite a while now, so we today we took her to the stables at Shelby Farms. Her pony's name was Bo. She had a blast! I wish I'd known about this place sooner.

After the ride, she gave Bo a couple of treats.

Then she and Jon fed the other horses treats.

I expect Savy will be asking to visit the stables again soon. I think she enjoyed feeding the horses as much as she enjoyed the pony ride. Scarlett was perfectly content to just sit by and watch today, but I know it won't be long before she has to do everything that her big sis does.

Yep you are right. Before you know it Scarlett will be copying her sister. That is what Carolyn does. She copies the good and the bad. Glad you are doing so well.

How fun! I'm so glad Savy enjoyed the pony ride. You're right when you say it won't be long til Scarlett will be tagging along right behind Big Sis too. It's such a cliche but so true; time flies when your kids are small. Glad everyone is doing good and that y'all had such a good time!
