Pony girl

By K.J. Cardinal

It's the calm before the storm known as March Madness for me, so we were able to take advantage of the nice weather today and get outside.

We had a nice brunch at Berlin Farms and included with brunch is a pony ride for any kids interested. Of course, Anna was interested. I mentioned the idea of riding a pony on the way in, but didn't say anything about it on the way out... but she remembered. Upon seeing the ponies on our walk outside, she said, "Anna ride pony? Anna ride pony?"

They strapped a slightly oversized helmet on Anna and off she went. She wasn't afraid at all as she took a lap on "Little Dude". She loved it...
We left Berlin Orchards and headed to Westford for Winterfest. It was a free family festival at East Boston Camps. Their outdoor sports (cross country skiing, snowshoeing and sledding) got canceled due to the lack of snow, but they still had hay rides, live music, camp fires and marshmallows, so we had a good go of it.

Definitely a great way to end a fantastic weekend. Let the Madness begin!
