The Track

On the 4th of July we decided to take Rylie to experience what every 2 year old should experience the horse track. This was the perfect day and year. Not only did they have free admission for the year, but it was family day with free pony rides, a petting zoo, free hot dogs and wiener dog races. We met our friends there since they live in the area. Sad for them we got there earlier and were able to spend time petting the horses and donkey as well as get a pony ride in before they arrived. We then watched a race, which is pretty exciting except that only last about 1 minute. Rylie was not really sure what was going on during the 1st race since they stated so far away you could hardly see them. By the time they got near us, I think she was just surprised to see horses. It was crazy hot outside. Our friends made it through 1 race and a ice cream cone before leaving us to brave the heat alone. We watched another couple races, went on another pony ride, pet the ducks and looked at all the wiener dogs. We thought that would be good except Rylie really wanted to see the wiener dogs race. So back to the race track we went to see these silly dogs race about 20ft. Rylie loved was her favorite part of the day, and that is saying a lot since she had 2 pony rides. When we finally did go to leave we had to pretty much drag her kicking and screaming out of the place. She did not want to leave. As a special treat we did stop at Toys R Us on the way home, that was just as hard of a place for her to leave. She informed us that she was going to live there. The aisle of Princess toys was like her idea of heaven, she wanted everything. All we could say was maybe for your birthday.
