Remember When?

Do you remember back when a photographer would go door to door offering to take pictures of a child on a pony? My Mom has the cutest picture of her taken in the early 40's on one of those ponies. I've always loved that picture of her. Hmmm... she better watchout, cause it may just end up at my house one of these days... hehe
For the last 3 years Sydney has had her picture taken on a pony too. Our preschool arranges for ponies to come to the school for rides and pictures. The kids really love it!
Here is Sydney posing with Simba the pony.
If you ask her what her favorite part about the ponies are, she'll tell you how funny they are when they scratch their fannies on the chainlink fence. It doesn't take much to amuse a 5 year old. :o)
It's been fun having these pictures taken for the last 3 years. It's blows me away how much she's changed in that time. My babe is growing up so fast...

In a collage frame in the hallway I have a picture of my husband on a pony. I don't remember the pony pictures but he remembers it vividly! Your little girl is precious. I love the pic of her holding the hat!

Karoline, Your daughter is so cute. How fun. We never had that opportunity, we missed out. You mentioned your mother. Did you get to do this too? Happy Mother's Day, Kathi
