While the Rodeo was in town, Brandon and I took a day off of work to take Mackenzie to the Livestock show. I wasn't sure how it was going to go, since she loves animals in books and movies but is scared of them in real life (cats and dogs too).
It turns out I had nothing to worry about...almost. She did great with almost all of the animals.
She liked the bunnies.
She liked the baby chicks.
She liked the sheep, especially the baby.
She even liked this big guy.
But what she wanted to do the most was ride the ponies! She did not want to do anything else until she road a pony. We asked her several times if she was sure she wanted to do that. yes. Was she sure she wanted to do what the other kids were doing? yes. really?? yes. So we paid our money and stood in line for 15 minutes.
Finally Brandon took her to her pony, while I stood by with the camera.
He put her on her pony.
And then immediately took her off!
We got our money back and left to go eat lunch! ;) Maybe next year will be better!
