Back in August we had a delightful day with Doll Mum and her lovely daughter.
The theme of the day was 'Cowboys, Country girls and Indians' and we had such a wonderful time.
Kaya is sitting outside her tepee contemplating the day - she has heard that there are going to be some visitors to the reservation and she is excited about seeing them. She wonders if she should get out some of her special treasures to show.
The first to arrive is Molly and Kaya tells her about the her treasures, a bow and arrow, papoose and a special little drum, along with her new friend the Canadian Indian Boy. Molly asks what it is like living in a tepee.
While Kaya and Molly are busy taking Peggy Sue has decided to visit the babies she has heard so much about.
Peggy Sue chats to Florence their older sister.
Miranda is busy with Clemence who is most concerned he can't find Laura.
Baby Mabel tries to comfort Clemence, but he isn't content for long...and wanders off.
Florence is delighted to have a little bit of time without the babies Leo and Mabel while Peggy Sue looks after them.
Peggy Sue asks them if they would like a story.
Clemence hearing the word story is soon back to sit with them...He is always up for a story or two.
Meanwhile Henry is out riding his horse Stratford...
....when suddenly he is surprised by a little bear who has appeared on Stratford's head.
Clemence whispers something in his ear...something about finding Laura...but all Henry sees is this vision of a beautiful girl riding a white horse.
Is this this vision for real?
Using his feet he gives Stratford instructions to change direction.
He sets off round the Indian camp to meet up with the girl.
Hello, I am Henry. He introduces himself. Are you Laura?
Why yes I am. The girl on the white horse replies.
Meanwhile Stevie comes across a little bear on the grass.
He whispers something in her ear....
She listens intently.
Very soon he is reunited with Laura his favourite girl.
Stevie pats Stratford while Henry and Laura chat.
I think Henry was very besotted by Laura, he hasn't seen any other friends ride horses before.
But wait, what about these two cowboys here?
Reuben and Nicholas James are having a discussions on the merits of riding a pony....Nicholas James isn't convinced...
It may not be so far to fall off you know Reuben, but I still wish I could ride Stratford as I feel a bit silly riding this little pony.
If only Nicholas James had voiced his wish to Henry, I am sure Henry would have given him a ride!
Thank you DollMum and daughter for such a lovely day.
Sorry it has taken us so long to blog about it.

A very big thank you to Doll Mum for the fabulous Tepee she made Henry as well. He is absolutely delighted with it as are the other children here at Rose Cottage. He really does believe wishes come true!
