Around 9 a.m., we headed over to Lily and Piper's house, so we could go see the new house their parents are building, off somewhere 30 minutes from here on the South Hill...We transfered the car seat to Tanya's new minivan, (which, although I don't particularly see myself getting one, I will admit that it was quite the ride...I bet they had moms involved in the design as it's very user friendly...well, except for the fact that it is pretty much impossible to hand anything to your child in the back...but then again, maybe one should never really do that, since one should always have their eyes/attention on the road...but then we also should always do a lot of things that we rarely do...)...and headed out of town. GASP!
The property they bought is RIGHT next to the river...and RIGHT next to a horse boarding place! It's a child's haven! First on the list was feeding the horses...
Lily was a complete pro...O stood about 50 ft. back and threw the carrots and apples in the general direction of the beasts!
I'll admit that even I was a bit cautious around these animals...they take a bit getting used to! We also visited the barn, and O didn't care for this one bit...it was the only time he asked to be picked up and held...and he buried his face in my hair...Then, when I put him down, he headed for the safety of the entrance!
After hanging out there a while, we crossed the grasses and as Tanya called it, "bushwhacked" our way to their house!
Once at the fabulous casa, we toured every square inch available, and then headed out to the patio overlooking the river where Lily and O had some snacks and threw rocks into the river...
After all that hard work, O took some time to contemplate his existence on this beautiful planet, and how lucky we are to have such wonderful friends!
