Patches the Pony

My sister gave Luke a pony ride for his birthday and while we went for the ride a couple of weeks ago, I'm just now getting around to posting the pictures. Luke had a blast--actually, I'm not sure who had more fun, Aunt Mary or Luke. The actual night of his birthday, she gave him a stuffed pony and told him about the ride they would take later. The pony was named Patches and for a good week or so before the ride, Luke would hug "Patches the Pony" and talk about his upcoming adventure with Aunt Mary. So, when we got to Shelby Farms for the ride, Luke called the real pony he was about to ride, Patches. The lady helping us kindly renamed the horse Patches, while Luke was riding him. The poor horse was confused about being called Patches instead of his real name, but a great time was still had by all! Thanks for the fun, Aunt Mary!!

Off they trot!

A pony ride isn't complete without a tractor picture!

Hooray for Patches the Pony pictures! Yes..Bo was a good sport for going along with being called "Patches" for the day. I'm so sad I lost my picture--but yay that I get to look at them on here now! Aunt Mary FOR SURE had a great time...

"Luke, say giddyup Patches!"
"Get up Patches!"
