Pony Rides and an Unexpected Geocache

When Christina's cousin visited in February, we took the boys to the Belair Stable Museum. There wasn't much there for a couple of 4-year-olds, but the docent told us that on May 17th, the museum would be offering free pony rides for Bowie Heritage Day. Ever since, the boys have been reminding me of this date.

They got their pony rides, of course, which was very exciting. And they got to see how butter was made, which they found less exciting.

Jack takes the lead!

Then the museum organized a race among the kids in attendance. There were two heats, and the Grantham boys made a clean sweep. They got their winner's medals. (Everyone got medals.)

Afterwards, while Christina was listening to the bluegrass band, the boys got antsy and went outside. Salem attempting to climb the wall despite my requests to the contrary. He grabbed a rock as a handhold, and was surprised as it came off the wall in his hand. I was surprised to realize that it was a geocache! We weren't even looking, and I found my 89th geocache, and 1st of 2015.
