It was fun to see where Lisa spends a lot of her time, and the boys had a great time. Nathaniel was crazy about the horses. Giddy with joy--as long as they were nowhere near him. He's a stubborn one, so he stayed at least 3 feet away and flat out refused to go closer. Even if someone was holding him. There was climbing, "nonononononono!" and finally, "put me down!" involved.
Benton's gotten a lot better about his fear of things that move. The child at Nathaniel's age was reduced to a quivering ball of tears around a cow, but talked about how he fed it (yeah right) for days. He went right up to the horses and pet their noses and let them sniff his head. He even survived a miniature horse nipping his ear.
Thanks, Lisa for a fun day!
