We took the boys to Glenwood Stables. They had never been horseback riding and it was such a beautiful day so we decided to go after church last Sunday. There was a HUGE party that afternoon so we didn't have much time.
Simon loved it!

Ben, on the other hand, was scared of the horses and really wanted nothing to do with them. He pulled the reigns with Jon once, but this is where he was basically the entire time. The Tractors!!! Don't worry, I made sure there wasn't a key in it. :) Ben would have been driving that tractor down the gravel road in no time, I'm sure!

We managed to get one picture of him on the horse for about a minute. You can't tell, but he's screaming his head off.

Then we went to Cold Stone. That was the one thing too many, but all in all, it was a good day!

You didn't tell me about that! That looks like alot of fun! I can just imagine Ben wanting to ride the tractor the whole time ~ who needs horsies when there's tractor's around?!?!? :)

How fun. I wonder if the horses are "big" and "scary" for Ben. Cold stone is a nice way to end the day.
Hey are you going to the conference next week at Christian Life Center?

I can't believe I didn't tell you Aim. Sorry! :( I bet Chloe would love it. Brett would love the tractors, for sure!
I think the horses are absoultely big and scary for Ben. He flipped out when their mouths came close for food! I am going to some of the conference. Either just the Friday night or the Saturday morning. I haven't decided yet...I need to find out when Margaret is speaking, then I'll decided! :) I LOVE to hear her speak! Are you going???

Absolutely! I mean absolutely!
