His actual birthday was on a Monday, so we scheduled Sunday as a family celebration day with a trip out to Irvine Park and lunch out.
Irvine Park has two kinds of horses - walking ponies and trotting horses. You have to be 3 to ride the trotting horses. So when the lady asked us if he was 3, I proudly answered "Yep! Tomorrow!" Apparently, 1 day makes a difference. Since he wasn't actually 3 yet, they wouldn't let him ride. Me and my big mouth! I really didn't think a day would matter. (Back at Easter, I knew 6 months would and fibbed (okay, lied!) then) So my poor birthday boy was relegated to the walking ponies. Fortunately he was (nearly) 3 and oblivious and really didn't care about what horses he rode, as long as he got to ride something! He thoroughly enjoyed his pony rides and McKenna did too! It turned out to be a great day, despite the momma guilt that I ruined his bday!
McKenna was so cute. She just kept petting the horse the whole ride, saying "Hi Nay!!"
Afterwards, we went to BJs for lunch. Austin was so excited about his very own pazookie. Heck, who can blame him? They're yummy!
