Day 11: Something fun

Dreamy and I attended the All New England Joint Fox Hunt yesterday.  It was hosted by the Myopia Hunt, which is one of the oldest hunts in the country.  It was SO MUCH FUN!!!!!  I will have to blog all about it once I get all the pics.  Dreamy was amazing, especially for only her third hunt ever!

Here is the only one I have (from my phone) of the two of us before we rode out!
