Pony express

Yesterday brought an unexpected treat—I rode a pony! Mom, Dad and I swung by our church's parish picnic, and while my parents thought I'd love seeing the pony close up, they had no idea I'd actually be able to ride it.

So Dad, now that I'm big enough to ride a pony, when are you going to buy me one?

By the way this video contains the happy ending: my sweet, contented reaction once I got off. What you didn't see was the real ending an hour later, when we left the picnic and I was sobbing hysterically because we were leaving the ponies behind.
