harses, harses, harses, harses...

Every time we go to the library, we pass by an equestrian arena. I have always thought it would be fun to sit and watch the horses jump. So that was fun day 32!  We drove in, went to the main office, asked if I could take the twins around to see the horses, and got a tour out of it! It was awesome. The twins were in heaven.

This wonderful woman, Marcia, taught us how to approach a horse. This horse is one of 400 horses at the stables in Huntington Beach. I couldn't believe it! He only had one eye. I don't remember his name so I call him One Eyed Willy.

After our little tour, we got to walk around and see the horses taking baths...





We continued our walk past more horse stables...




And then up to watch the horses jump...

B & M loved it.

Then we went back to Mother's Beach, because we had a random visit from Tyson's sister. We love random... so we ran with it!

We played in the water...


Played in the sand...


Played with cousins...


Played with grandma...

And ate pizza...



Another wonderful summer day!

There are two references to movies in this post. Can you find them? I also want to see who actually gets to the end of this post. Sorry for the length.
