Horsing around on our first family vacation

We went on vacation to Chincoteague Island, Virginia, the island next to Assateague Island, which is a national preserve.

Assateague Island is the home to “wild” ponies. (They really aren’t wild ponies. They are treated by a vet and are very well cared for.)

This is Mommy and Daddy and the original Misty. Preserved forever in the museum. (You were sleeping in the car with Mimi when we saw Misty.)
