so you want to be a cowboy baby

This past week we went to visit family in Utah. My sister Candice was blessing her baby and my other sister McCall just had a baby, it was time for a visit. While we were there my other sister Cami told me that her good friend Judd would take Henry on a horse ride. Background story.........Henry loves animals and his favorite is horses. He loves to pretend he is a horse and any chance he gets he will ride, pet, and feed anything that resembles a horse (ie burro, mule, donkey). However, he has never been on a real horse. He has seen many and even fed them but never ridden them so...........When I decided to visit I asked Cami if Judd would take Henry. Cami's friend is a cowboy in every sense and cami is a cowgirl in every sense and they ride all the time and said that it would be no problem. Henry and his cousin Jack borrowed hats from my mom and did the cowboy thing all morning. Henry was quite in his element. Jetta would not get on the horse. She was content to waring a cowboy hat and playing with dirt all morning. Since we have gotten home he carried his grey horse around calling him Silver (the name of the horse he rode) and telling me this is the horse he rode. Thank you Cami and Judd!!!!!!

The kids look like they had fun. William's first time on a horse was not as successful as Henry's.. he cried as soon as he got in the saddle. Guess no cowboy for the Nielsens :) love ya!
