Can you visit Charleston and not experience a carriage ride? I think not. And I have to say that Lawson completely agrees. The same child who dislikes any mascot and animals (stuffed or alive) LOVED the horses. Sunday while we were walking to the parade I met a new side of this child. My happy-go-lucky child turned into a screaming, "I wanna ride da horses" little boy.
Picture this, mixed-use development (aka you can hear a pin drop) walking from The Battery to King Street. A Mommy toting a 23 month old in an Ergo. A happy 4.5 year old skipping along side her mommy. Oh a horse and carriage with a few passengers. Let's stop and take a look at this. Okay, we've seen all we can see let's continue to the parade. Child in ergo, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I wanna ride da horses!!" screams x30 times...very, very loudly while reaching back towards the horse!
Fast forward 45 minutes-
At the parade wouldn't you know that Wells Fargo has their Stagecoach make an appearance. This time Lawson starts walking down the street after it. When I won't let him go any further he starts his shenanigans again. Thankfully there weren't many people around to witness his behavior. :) Nor did we pass any horses on the walk back to The Battery (thankfully).
One happy guy with his horse!
