On Eric's last day the sky was finally not drenching us so we called up and asked if they were doing rides. They said to hurry before it started raining again, so we raced over. In the 10 minutes it took us to get in the car and drive there it started raining again. We headed back to the town site, where it promptly stopped raining. So we jumped back in the car and drove to the stables. I think they felt sorry for us at this point because they said they would take us out, and gave us all raincoats to wear. Livi is finally old enough to go on the ride herself, so she was super excited.
|Of course she got a giant horse. I would have been more scared if they didn't make her be lead by one of the guides.|
|You can barely tell, but Ethan is the one in green with the striped hoodie and Eric is the one in yellow. We were a very stylish group!|
|It was a very pretty walk, but the humidity was killer and the path was covered in water from the recent rain. All our feet got completely soggy, but luckily we only got a few bug bites.|
|Livi immediately dove into the sand and started building sand castles, because her first impulse to seeing any sand, even muddy-ish sand, is the get down and dirty.|
|Ethan also thought it was like the beach, and started crawling down the dune on his stomach. I just had to take a picture and then turn away so I wouldn't freak out. He is probably still finding sand in interesting places from this excursion.|
|Some of our group in front of the newly remodeled cabin. Also one of the 2 photos taken of me the entire trip. Jes was unable to make it in the photo since she was upstairs dying of Cholera, or West Nile, we still aren't sure.|
|The day after Eric left the weather got better which means he had incredibly bad luck, or magic was involved somehow. It looked overcast, but the kids had a great, warm day to play on the water part of the park.|
