Ever since our Mackinac Island adventure (yet to be blogged), Katie has shown a heightened interest in horses. "Katie like ponies!" she'll sometimes exclaim, even though we don't see a horse anywhere near. She also likes to shout, "Yee-haw!" Maybe it's the pony that Will, Holly & Conor gave her for her birthday? Or maybe it's just an innate little girl thing?
Saturday afternoon the kids and I met Noel at the Fort Worth science museum to see the Star Wars exhibit. We had to wait for our timed entry, so we wandered over to the National Cowgirl Museum. Katie sat on a wooden pony for about 40 minutes. She had perfect posture and a peaceful smile, as if to say how proud she was of her costume and horse.
This season there are lots of clothes for a pony-loving toddler. I'm going to resist paying full price at Gymboree or Janie and Jack but will check in weekly for the first markdown! And, I ordered her a pair of bright pink cowgirl boots from Target.
