We woke up early and headed for the trails. Back in December for Ellie's birthday Grandma and Grandpa B's gift to her was a gift certificate for a horseback ride. It was the perfect day, especially in Arizona. Sunny, nice little breeze, not to cold and not too hot. The best part was Grandma B was in town and she was able to ride with us all. I was surprised at how long and wonderful the ride was. If you were to ask Jon he could not have gotten off his horse fast enough. It had been fifteen years since I was on a horse but I realized it was something I missed.
Ellie has been in love with horses since she was a toddler. Especially since she takes trips to Grandma and Grandpa B's ranch in California, there Lucy Blaze is her favorite horse. Ellie was right behind the lead horse and we heard her say "I'm having the best day of my life". She really was in heaven and just so full of excitement. She truly is a natural when it comes to riding a horse.
Yummmm....cupcakes from Jon's birthday. Enough said.
