The kids were so excited the entire hour it took us to drive out there. And I was excited for them. And, for the $5 that it cost us to do it, it was totally worth it!
However, what none of us expected was a stable right smack dab in the middle of the city!
There were commercial and residential buildings all around the stable (on all sides) and a major highway just a block away. It was quite humorous to all of us!
In fact, my favorite picture of the day is this one!
It's not every day that you get to go horse back riding and get followed by a UPS truck.
The highlight of our trip was definitely the actual horse and pony rides.
Waiting patiently for their turn was by far the hardest part!
But once they were riding, they were happy.
Lucas got to pet the pony but I thought he was a bit little to actually ride!
While I thought it a fantastic opportunity for them to experience stable life, after seeing the inside of the stable and seeing how the horses were fed and groomed, Nicholas informed me that the field trip was horrible! And that was basically all he could talk about the rest of the day.
When asked why he thought it was so horrible, he would state, "the horses smelled, there was poop everywhere and everything was dirty."
So much for farm life!
And...proof positive all of my babes were born in NYC!
