A carousel horse, that is.
"Pretty well" = no tears
We put him on the horse (not one of the wimpy stationary giraffes or frogs for us!) and got ready for the ride to start. But then, the carousel started going around in circles, as carousels tend to do, and his horse started moving up and down.
He was a little unsure about this part, but still, no tears, so it was a success!! Of course, we went for a second ride too and sat in the stationary sleigh this time, which he liked too.
Afterwards, we stopped by Haagen-Dazs for ice cream (raspberry sorbet for me and German chocolate for mama -- the same flavors we've both been getting for the past 25 years). Barrett loves tasting ice cream, so he was all for taking part in this tradition.
I thought it was so cool to take Barrett for the same carousel/Haagen-Dazs combo treat at the same mall where my mom took me and my sister when we were little. Pretty neat, huh?
