While Grandma was here, we went on many short little trips. Just short little half-day things to do.
One one of those outings, we went to the local amusement park. We met one of Natalie's friends and her parents there. The friend really wanted to ride the horsies. I wasn't sure Natalie would go for that, she's usually a little uncertain about getting too close to any kind of animal. But I guess peer pressure works at an early age, and Natalie actually got to ride a horse:
Afterwards, she was soooo proud! I'm so glad she did it.
Later in the week, we went to the local apple orchard. They have a little walking trail that takes the kids past a lot of different animals. And Natalie got to touch a sheep:
Bah, Bah, white sheet!
Again, she was soo proud! Maybe she's starting to be a little less reserved when it comes to animals...
