Birthdays and Pony Rides

Last weekend, Ryan got to attend her 2nd cousin Piper's 1st birthday party.  Obviously, she had no idea that the day was any different than a normal day, but the party put on by Josh's cousins Allee and Barrett was just beautiful and it didn't hurt that it was 85 degrees in March!

At the last minute, I found the perfect little skirt at Target even though I wasn't even really looking for something for her to wear.  Isn't that how it usually works at Target?  You go in for a bottle of shampoo and come out with two outfits, a pair of strappy sandals, some groceries, a picture frame, a new DVD, and about $100.00 worth of other things....please don't tell me it's just me.

Anyway, little did we know that Ryan would be wearing the perfect outfit for the party.  People thought I planned to match the birthday girl!
This picture kills me.  Kids are seriously hilarious.
We had SUCH a good time.  The highlight of the party was Ryan's first pony ride.  We were a little hesitant to let her ride the pony, but the child LOVES cats and dogs and so I figured horses would be no different.  I wasn't wrong, she was on cloud 9.

The worst part of the whole pony ride was that my little baby looked like such a big girl. Tear.  She is growing up far to fast for my liking.

This party gave me all sorts of ideas for Ryan's 1st birthday, which is only about three months away! Oh man, thinking about that makes me excited and sad all at the same time.  Babies growing up is so so bittersweet!
