Maxwell went to a kickin' birthday party for his cousins, Spencer and Emily, that had a cowboy theme. I heard from his grandma that he refused to get on the miniature pony. Steve has a fear of horses that must be genetic and is passed from male to male. Grandma even tried to bribe him with $100 and failed. This is a huge bribe denial for Max because he has been saving to buy the Lego K-19 Droid Carrier (sad that I know the name!) which he has seen in his Lego catalog is just over $100, and 25 cents a chore is not getting him there fast! I asked him why he wouldn't get on the horse and he explained that horses can buck you off. I guess he didn't compute that a two foot fall while going 2 miles an hour wouldn't have been very harmful! He still managed to have a really really great time at the party and came home with this cowboy hat as a party favor. We all took turns trying it on. I think Capri wins in the "Adorable in a ganster sort of way" category. Sophie wins in the "I look like a rodeo queen" category. And I win in the "This picture is way too zoomed in and at the wrong angle" category!
