Train and Pony Rides

Today, we met up with some friends and their kids at a local park where there's a playground, a farm, a train, and pony rides. Unfortunately, I found out that being pregnant disqualifies me from riding the train, so I had to be happy with being an observer. Looks dangerous, doesn't it? Here's Jerry and Norah enjoying their ride. Norah loved it. She kept saying "Yay!"
After the train ride, the kids played on the playground for a bit, and then we got in line for the ponies, and here they are, Norah to the far right, waiting their turns whilst getting a feel for their helmets.
Here's Norah and I while we were waiting. And yes, she is pretty much always tattooed. She's obsessed with her "ink" and asks for fresh ones as soon as they wear off. Good thing they're cheap: I think the original package was a couple hundred tattoos for, like, $2. Much cheaper than real ink ;)
Finally, it was Norah's turn to ride her pony, and as luck would have it, she got assigned the biggest pony. She loved it. She got to circle the corral 4 times, and she kept reaching forward to pet her pony, and Jerry told me that she kept saying, "Wow!" Despite how fun she thought it was, I didn't get a single pic of her smiling, but what is funny about every pic of her riding is that her helmet is crooked everytime:



All in all, it was dang good times. And as I commented to one of our friends as we were watching the kids ride their respective ponies: These kids sure do get to do lots of fun stuff!

Was she looking back at you? Good thing you didn't ride on that dangerous looking train.

I think the helmets are a bit of over kill. I think it would do more damage than good! Still, didn't spoil her fun, which is the important factor. :)

Got to watch out for trains. Never know when one might derail...

Pony-riding is serious business - too serious for smiling! Looks like a fun day, but too bad you had to miss out on the train. I find it kind of funny that toddlers can go on, but not a preggo.
