This afternoon, Emma and I ventured out into the backyard to take her belated-birthday photos. By "backyard", I mean our 1-acre of dirt. The dirt has actually grown on me a little; plus I love the fact that on the other side of our fence there are horses (and a pony, and a donkey!).
When the horses saw us, they started heading in our direction.
Pretty soon they decided to greet us. "Welcome to the neighborhood", I'm pretty sure they were saying.
