Today the boys rode Squiggles, the horse, with Auntie Lindsey. The boys were so excited. Sam dressed up in his cowboy outfit which consists of chaps, a vest and cowboy boots...only we forgot the cowboy boots. Jacob chose to wear his favorite hockey jersey that Grandpa Randy bought him at Disneyland. The boys helped Lin by brushing down the horse, picking its hooves, and learning how to put a saddle on. As Jacob was brushing the horse he said "the horse is stinky." This made us all laugh. They each took turns riding the horse and loving it. They even got to do a trot. Jacob looked right at home in the saddle with a big grin on his face. Much to my surprise Sam even did the trot and had a great time. It turned out to be a wonderful experience. Thank you Auntie Lindsey!
