Cowgirl Stella and the Puppy Parade

Last Sunday, we took Stella to the Krewe of Arfus Pet Parade at Zephyr Field. This fun outing was all Daddy's idea, so Mommy cannot take any credit on this one, Miss Jen. When we arrived, the first pets that we saw parading were actually ponies instead of puppies. Stella told us that she wanted to ride the horsey. "Yeah, right," I thought. I was sure that she would be too terrified to follow through, but after scrambling around and finding some actual cash for her pony ride (who knew they didn't take plastic?), we hoped for the best...Paying up...
Saddling up...
Yee-haw! In spite of the rather trepidatious look on her face, she really enjoyed her ride...
Casually gazing off into the distance like this is old news to her...
After seeing how much she enjoyed riding the pony, Daddy asked the Pony Tales crew to come to Stella's birthday party. Now our barnyard theme will be legit. After horsing around, Stella and MawMaw checked out some smaller varmints...
And got a friendly shake from a BIG dog...
By the time we left the parade, Stella was happy and exhausted, MawMaw and PawPaw were just happy, and Mommy and Daddy were sneezing. In spite of the allergens, a fun time was had by all.
