We had a great time on our mini vacation at the beach. The weather was great, the water was warm and the waves were big. All of that makes a great vacation. We just hung out at the beach every day and played with the kids. Baby B got more daring and would play in the shallow water and even jump a few waves. I am very proud of her.

Yesterday we went to a birthday party for the son of one of my friends from work. It was a far trip but the kids had a great time. She had a pony for the kids to take some rides on. It turns out all the kids besides Baby B and one other little girl were scared of the pony and wouldn't ride him. So Baby B rode the pony almost for the full hour uninterrupted. She had a blast.
A didn't want anything to do with that horse and when I made him sit on him, cried to get down. I think he would have loved it if he gave it a chance but I am not going to torture him.
Who knew pony rides were torture.
Not my sister who asked for a pony every birthday and Christmas until she was 20. No, she never got one.
But hey, I never got the drum set I asked for either.
My parents put their sanity over their child's Christmas wish.
Good for them, I will have to teach that lesson to my kids early. Mom and Dad will try to get you great gifts as long as it doesn't poop, isn't loud or have anything to do with the wiggles.


  1. Glad you had a good time!

  2. Sounds like fun. I've always wanted to do a pony ride at one of the kids birthday parties but now after reading this post, I may rethink that thought. My kids love to ride but it wouldn't be any fun if the others didn't want to.
