Pony Rides and Petting Zoo
Our city has a big festival every year. The kids and I decided to go and check it out. We even brought Aunt Jackie with us. She was a huge help...two kids around pony rides and a petting zoo is fun, but you can't take your eyes off of them for a second. After much deliberation, Ella decided that she wanted to indeed try the pony ride. Turns out she loved it. (Grandma, you may have to get horses again!!) In fact, once she was done, she wanted to go again. Turns out, pony rides aren't exactly cheap. Two rides was our max. She enjoyed herself!
Ben had a blast too. If I would have asked, I'm sure he would have loved the chance to ride a pony too. I'm sure the pony is grateful that we didn't put Ben on his back. All the kicking, gleeful screaming, and drool would have been enough to want to buck him off. Instead, Ben enjoyed the petting zoo, wandering around aimlessly, and dancing to the band that was playing.
I have more pics...and once blogger cooperates, I post them.
