We were delighted to attend our friend Lizzy's birthday party over the weekend. The scent of barbecue lured us to the backyard, where a sprawling tent offered shade. Underneath, tables decorated with hay bales, bandanas, flowers in mason jars and even a real saddle gave the party the relaxed feel of a country fair. My friend Stacey did a wonderful job pulling everything together!
Lizzy loves horses, so her parents surprised her at the party with live ponies to ride. When I shared this news with the girls, Mary Ashley's eyes grew wide with excitement. "Ooh, I want to ride a unicorn!" she exclaimed. "It will have a horn with rainbow colors, and all the colors will shoot out of the top into the sky and cover the world with love."
Although Mary Ashley didn't get to ride a unicorn, she did look regal sitting so straight in the saddle. Emma and Christian also took turns riding. Emma was so expressive as she rode!
Sweet cowgirlfriends Lizzy and Emma all are smiles after a pleasant ride. Happy birthday, Sweetheart!
