Saturday, we walked to the park. We normally love going to the park, and this time it was even better! The walk started out like any other great walk - a little bit of this:
"Ha roo to YOU!"
... and a little bit of this:

We didn't think we were going quite as far as the park, or we might have toned that down a bit. Maybe. Or maybe not.
Anyway, when we got to the park, we took a little water break. I let Mags go first:
|"This is so great, Mom! What an awesome walk!"|
Then Mom said it was about to get even better.
"Yeah, Mom! How could it get better?!?"
That's when it hit our noses! The K-State Rodeo was going on - and the park was teeming with horses!
Because we are very calm and quiet around horses (Mags and I were raised around horses, back in our homeland of Missouri), Mom and Dad let us go over to one of the buildings where the horses were resting to see if any of them would like to meet us. I waited by the side ...
|"Hello? Would any horse like to meet a sweet, gentle Siberian?"|
... and sure enough, someone came over to meet me. Mom may have fallen in love with my new friend. Here he is:
|My new friend!|
That's right - he had a heart on his forehead. Is that adorable, or what? Anyway, he was very friendly. After a bit of sniffing, I said I'd try to swing by Sunday to see him again. (More on that tomorrow!)
There was another group of horses out getting some sun -
We sat and watched them for a few minutes:
|"This has turned into SUCH an awesome adventure!"|
"You can say that again!"
What an AWESOME walk to the park! We did get to go back the next day; we'll fill you in on that tomorrow!
We hope you enjoyed coming to the park with us! We love it when the rodeo is in town!
