Before the weather gets too crazy, Savannah and I decided to spend our Saturday for horseback riding at Magnolia Farm.  We got special from Groupon: Up to 50% off entry to Pony Tales at Camp Magnolia in Alpharetta, Georgia.

We got there at 10 AM and the actual horseback riding didn’t start till around 11.

However, there were plenty activities available while waiting.

1. Taking pictures and more pictures.

2. Catching falling leaves …  Kids don’t need much to have fun.  They appreciate little things around them.

Picture below is Savannah making her first wool ball beads.  There were several colors wool batt / roving to choose from.  You only need about 4-5″ long to make 1″ wool ball.  Then dip it into soapy water and roll it till you get a ball shape.  Air dry afterwards.
