Girls Riding Ponies at the Zoo




Our girls LOVE to ride horses! Whenever I tell them that we are not getting a dog right now, they say, "Ok Mom. How about a horse instead?" They also both answer, "A horse rider," to the question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" We tried to get C-Ray to ride the ponies, but he would have none of it... he did ride the carousel later though, which mildly impressed us. Even then, he refused to ride on a pony- he chose a bunny instead (despite my encouraging him to pick the tiger right next to it). Mack remained positive about the irrational fears and preferences of our son as he said, "Well, as bunnies go, that one is pretty cool."

Wow! The girls should be in sales! You got to admire their use of the either/or option close. "Mom and dad, would you like us to have a dog or a horse?" I can't wait until they are a little older when they can spend a week or two with Uncle Matt! ( : And whoever thinks the bunny is girlish and safe needs to go rent Monty Python Holy Grail! Bunnies can kill! Run away! Run away! No worries Colin. You stick with the bunnies!
