she has been begging to have her school friends over to play.
so today, we had them all over.
we played at the house.
took them to the beach for sunset.
they had a blast.
all of them.
bella, emmi, ella, vinny, & ryan.
ryan especially loved it.
not only does he get to hang with older kids,
but he gets to hang with older girls.
he doesn't know how lucky he is...
judging by the look on his face,
he knows exactly how lucky he is.

her first day of "school".
she was all smiles this morning.
until it came time for actual drop off.
let's just say,
let's just say,
she didn't get kicked out her first day like her brother,
but i don't think she spent any time out of the teacher's arms either.
why couldn't they all have been as easy going as ella??

today was perfect.
we took a real train ride.
got off at one of the stops.
had a picnic.
wchich included picking wild raspberies.
walked to a small, simple, park for kids.
got back on the train.
and returned to the station.
it was a throwback in time.
it was so sweet.
it was so relaxing.

this is what they've been waiting for.
oh, how they love to ride.
they love everything about them.
and i love to sit back and watch.
watch their faces light up as they trot around.
watch their smiles brighten as they hold the reins.
oh, how we love the horses.
and there's just something about an old red barn.
i just couldn't pass up this photo op.
