We started our day thinking that we'd head over to the antiques malls in Springfield, but while Harper was napping on the way there, we decided that we'd be so close to Columbus that we ought to go to the zoo. I'd been selling the whole trip up to that point as "oh boy! we get to ride in the car!" (which Harper was buying into by the way), but when she woke up from her nap we announced our new plan to see the animals which I have to admit was received with quite a bit more enthusiasm. At the zoo, they have Shetland pony rides, and after watching some of the kids ride, Harper decided that she wanted to ride too. Here we are waiting in line.And here's our little equestrian on her first ride. She really seemed to love it and wanted to ride again right after the ride was done.Here's Harper and Daddy walking with the puppy backpack. People look at us a bit funny, but that thing is a life saver. Video of pony ride coming up in next post.
We rounded out the day with a short trip to the antiques mall so I could get some "supplies", and then we even went over to Suzy's house to swing and play with Abbey and Isabel.
