Sometimes Mr. Nielson, the Little Nies, and I just hop in the car and drive.
We don't have anywhere to go; we just drive around our gorgeous
(growing) city and look out the window.
The weather has really been nailing it lately, and we can drive around
with our windows down.
I love looking at homes, old and new-in fact when Mr. Nielson and
I was dating; that was one of our favorite past-times together.
I think it always will be.
Then we encountered this magical scene, and I made Mr. Nielson stop.
A midget pony in a green field with blossoms raining from the tree above.
It was pretty gorgeous.
Once we stopped the car, Lottie popped out, and the little pony
(who looks like it just trotted out of the movie Willow)
came right up to her. It was pretty adorable.
(Thanks to the residents of the gorgeous property for making
barefoot Lottie so very, very happy).
