In so many ways she's still so little- she still wants me to pick out her clothes, she wants us to brush her teeth, she cries when she stubs her toe.... but in so many other ways she's soooo big- she's reading, writing her own birthday thank you cards, trotting on a horse by herself, cracking legitimately funny jokes, and mastering the art of the cartwheel!! Amazing. Amazing to be a part of it all and to watch her grow up!!!
And now, on to the party! This year, we had a Horse Party at a nearby stable. There were three horses- 2 saddled and 1 bareback. Everyone got a chance to ride a saddled horse and a bareback horse. All of the kids also had the chance to groom and brush the horses. Avery was very serious about sharing her horse knowledge with anyone that would listen! So here are lots and lots of pics of Avery with her favorite animals!!!
