A Dreamy Day

Yesterday was probably one of our dreamiest days ever as a family.


The arrival of a long-anticipated-wished-for-dreamed-of extended animal family member….


Yes … something the girls have saved up for, read about, hoped for, but had no clue we had arrangements in the works for their special surprise to arrive this lovely Saturday morning…


It was *quite* the morning. After a week of giving tricky hints, the big day had finally arrived. We blind-folded a gaggle of giddy girls as they anxiously waited for the surprise ….it was quite hilarious and hazardous leading them outside off the porch into the backyard while filming/taking pictures, helping toddlers and carrying babies. Kate, the girls’ godmother was here from New York, and capturedĀ  the surprise reveal {whilst helping guide blinded girls and little toddler Lavender}…


Can you guess what made the day so dreamy?





I think everyone was in shock for the whole day …

Welcome to the family, Spirit! You will be well loved, adored and cared for … by many girls who just love you to pieces already.

It did not take the girls long to braid her mane and tail – they couldn’t wait any longer!


The girls are still pinching themselves to see if it’s real or a dream … and to be honest, I am too. We have talked about having a miniature horse for the girls for so long, but we never really thought the day would come – or that we would be brave enough to finally do it. But here she is … Spirit … our newest animal family member …

This is going to be a fantastic summer …
