And that's how I'm *finally* getting around to editing the photos that I took during our family visit to the Kentucky Horse Park back in June, yikes!
|Horses of the World show|
|SO much petting!|
|Horse evolution in the kids' barn!|
|Kiddo jump course|
|Hall of Champions show, featuring retired winning racehorses|
|You gotta double-fence the fields to keep the stallions from killing each other.|
|Sydney and I LOVE doing dorky statue mimicry.|
|Sometimes random horses and riders in costume just go riding by.|
|This was a VERY patient pony.|
|a very, VERY patient pony|
|The park's museum is EXCELLENT, with, again, an extensive section on horse evolution--right in our sweet spot!|
Of course, now that our free week is halfway through, the girls are (somewhat) over their Netflix Instant frenzy, and there's the imaginative play that I'd hoped they'd spend the day with, the fort building, the playing with chickens, the baking of delicious foods, and the heady anticipation of Halloween. We've had playdates and swimming dates, the invention of cinnamon/butter/salt popcorn, some time at the office with Matt, and ice skating to look forward to after they clean out the chicken coop later this morning. During all of this, I deep-cleaned the house, finished a set of chair covers for our janky old living room table chairs, planned a Harry Potter book club for Syd and some of her friends, finished the chore for pay magnets that I've been wanting for, like, a year now, and now that I've gotten these Kentucky Horse Park photos edited, well, I might as well plan the rest of the Kentucky unit for our 50 States Project!
