I struck gold just a short walk from our house!

Seriously...

like we just walk past the neighbor's house (which is the end of the road) and take a right down a short dirt path and navigate through some weeds...

to 3 VERY hungry horses. When we found them and they came over to the fence, I SPRINTED back to our house to grab some carrots (all 27 pounds of Lily in tow)... add 'get in shape' to my new year's resolutions. This may have been the greatest day of Lily's life to date.





Jeff may have to take a second job to keep us in carrots!

Later this day, the lady who we seeing riding horses (different horses-- we're country folk) down the dirt road came riding by. We ran outside and she brought her horse and the baby one she was leading up in the yard for us to pet! With her were 2 giant dogs... can life get any better.... Lily submits that it can NOT!

I am so glad the horses came back so that Lily could feed them. Love you all, Nana

It was so fun visiting the horses with you and Lily. I'm glad she gets to see fun stuff like that.
