Great Saturday Outing!!
What a great Saturday we had! First we went to the baptisms of Hanna Davis and Joshua Sherwood. It was wonderful, although Heather and I spent a lot of the time in the hall with the little ones (typical). Braden has always been fascinated with horses. Whenever we drive through Nellie Gail or Utah or wherever he always squeals with delight, kicks his legs, etc. when he sees the horses. Last week after we went to a house I sold in San Clemente we drove through San Juan on the way to Ladera Ranch for some Infusion take out. On the corner of Antonio and Ortega we saw a sign by the stables saying that on the weekend of the 28th they would have a horse jumping competition and a horse dressage event. We thought that would be great for the kids to see and experience. Well, it exceeded our expectations. We got there and the parking was free. Bonus. And the event did not require tickets, Bonus. And they had blow up bounce houses, slides, etc, that did not require tickets or money, Bonus!! Plus, we got to walk right down next to the horses. There were no fences between us and the horses unless they were competing or practicing. It was awesome for even Heather and I. The kids were enthralled with everything. It was just a great experience for all of us, including Boston!
