Wonderfull (Full of Wonder) Wednesday

Looking for the wonder in everyday life! 
I'd love for you to join me on this journey. 
If you find wonder along the way, please leave a link in the comments,
so others can share in your wonder!

Isn't it wonderfull to see a dream come true?

Bunny and I have been talking for months about going to see real ponies some day. She kept telling me she wanted to ride one, but I honestly expected her to change her mind when the time came. We were out shopping, and saw a sign for Pony Rides. Papa pulled the car right over. I asked her if she wanted to get out and see them, still expecting her to pet one at the most. I thought for sure she wouldn't really want to ride one.

I was wrong. She was fearless!

She sat astride Pepper, her face beaming with excitement and pride.
Never even a hint of worry in her eye. She loved every second.
The wind was whipping cold that day, or we might never have gotten her off that pony.

Having fueled her passion for horses even further, we are now planning a trip to see more horses, sometime soon. 

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in” ~ Rachel Carson

  1. Bunny looks so much older in this picture. She just had a birthday... but wow, something about this picture makes her look like a little lady (maybe it's the wind blown hair?).

    We love pony rides too!

    Wishing you a lovely day!

    1. Three seems so grown-up! Bittersweet.

  2. What a beautiful picture! And I agree with Jennifer, she does look like a little lady. Growing up so fast!

  3. aw...what a brave little girl! She's lucky to have such great parents, too! I think the greatest gift my parents ever gave me was riding lessons when I was 12, there's something about little girls and horses

    1. I took riding lessons too, so I have a soft spot for my horse lovin' girly!

  4. There's nothing like your first pony ride! And I think Bunny looks SO much like you in this picture!

  5. What a great photo. My daughter also had a pony craze, but at the first ride we found out she was alergic to horses. By the end of the ride she had started to puff up, and we had to rush to a chemist for antihystemines. It was sad, as she was so keen.
