Sunny Saturday

Our Saturday at the farm was delightful with cool, sunny weather and clear skies. Claire spent most of the day at the horse farm, so we walked up to watch during her riding lesson.
Claire's feet didn't reach the stirrups, though they were positioned as short as they could go. After failed attempts to remedy the situation--involving stuffing packages of baby wipes in the bottom of the stirrups, Mr. Morgan cut two-by-fours into blocks to use as a shim in the stirrup.
Hamilton enjoyed the big-fence barrier between himself and the horses. He was not interested in getting any closer, though he enjoyed watching Claire mount the horse and ride.
Hamilton loves long walks around the farm, and we stop every few steps to look at this or that or play in the dirt.
