I haven’t seen Les’s 5-year-old grand-daughter, Karoline, since school started two months ago. So when I found out she was coming over on Saturday, I planned a fun-filled time for all of us!
1. She would have her first ‘real’ riding lesson on Sugar.
2. She would have her favorite meal – BBQ wings
3. We would have a bonfire complete with roasting marshmallows.
Ah, the best laid plans. She had her first lesson – it went well, rider and horse both finished safely! But immediately following the lesson, we had an un-planned rain shower. It didn’t last long enough to saturate the ground, only long enough to wet the woodpile for the bonfire.
During dinner of macaroni and cheese and BBQ wings, I mentioned how disappointed I was that they wouldn’t be able to roast marshmallows…from the mouths of babes…Karoline asked why we couldn’t just roast them over the stove…so we tried it!
