Both kids really enjoyed it, but it was quite a ways up there for the boy. He looked less sure that sis did.

The Pony Express
Saturday morning, on our way in to the Easter Egg hunt, some pony express riders were waiting on the side of the highway. I pulled over to let the kids look at the horses, and ask if I could take pictures. The riders were so kind, they let the kids pet the horses, and sit in the saddle while they waited for 'the boot' to come.If you are unfamiliar with the Annual Pony Express ride, they ride to raise money for Camp Sunnyside, a camp for kids with disabilities. They pass the money along the route via "the boot", (I don't know if any actual money is in the boot they pass, or if it is more ceremonious.)
