Giddy Up!

If you follow us much you know that our little boy has a new obsession with horses.  He likes to pretend that things are horses and then tries to ride them.  So you can imagine his joy when he finally got to ride the real thing this past Saturday.  We had just attended our mission Christmas party in Guatemala City and another missionary told us about horse and pony rides in the park close to his house.  We stopped by there on our way home and let Cruz ride.  He loved it!  We thought he might be a little scared of a real horse but no way.  David put him on there and it was like he had been riding for years.  No fear!  He talked and made horse sounds all around the block.  It made us so happy to see him so happy.  The cost for this simple fun- Q10.  That's about $1.25 for a trip around the block.  Well worth it! 

Of course his joy did not last long.  He cried as soon as we took him off.  He cried himself to sleep in the car on the way home, and then cried as soon as he woke up from his nap.  He cried off and on the rest of the day wanting to ride the horse again.  We will definitely have to take him back there another day.
