Ayla had her very first ‘proper’ pony ride! I have sat her on top of several horses from the moment she was born, but this time it was all her own idea and she was able to go for a little ride, hat on and everything!
This wasn’t just any pony though, this is Oscar, we bought him quite a few years ago with the intention of schooling him to ride and drive to sell, but me being me, I just couldn’t part with him. Instead I decided to find him a loan family when I found out I was pregnant and he has been very well loved by two little girls. Oscar will make a wonderful first pony for Ayla when she gets a bit bigger. I loved seeing him, it was so special as I haven’t seen him for so long and Ayla was filled with so much joy being carried along on his back, she kept saying to him “good boy” which really made me smile.
The weather has been really lovely some days and we have tried to make good use of the garden when the sun has been shining!
Ayla thought Mums garden rabbit needed an Easter bonnet!!
We got given some free tomato seeds with our bottle of ketchup this week so me and Ayla planted them. I also planted some flower seeds which we had been given.
Ayla planted….stones! 🙂
It got so sunny Nana bought a beautiful sun hat for Ayla … needless to say we haven’t seen the sun since!
So we played dress up with some clothes that are really on there way to the charity shop for a friend but Ayla just thought she would give us a fashion display before they hit the shops! I just loved how she thought the necklaces were “crowns” and informing us all she was the “Queen” of course.
And then in true British fashion for St Georges day today it was back to wearing coats and woolly hats with raining day book-stops, and coffee shops 🙂
