All The Pretty Horses
Saturday Elijah and I went to ride horses. I love to ride and figured since my brother Jay and SIL Vicki have horses we needed to take advantage of it. The bitter cold we've had for the past 2-3 weeks gave way to 60 degree weather! Perfect for horseback riding.
This was Elijah's first time riding by himself. Vicki walked Cody around the corral for a bit, then let him go. Elijah did good, even when Cody decided to gallop. Elijah held on and just laughed. I, on the other hand about died. All I could see was him falling off! Thank God he didn't.
After Elijah rode, we rode together. I got Cody to gallop and Elijah and I couldn't stop laughing as we bounced up and down.
Vodka, Jay's horse, was always searching for snacks. Elijah was showing Vodka he didn't have any snacks, so I gave him one, and almost gave him my finger!

It was fun spending some quality time with Elijah. Time filled with smiles and giggles instead of yelling and frowns.
Elijah can't wait to do it again, and honestly, neither can I. We need more memories like this.
