The horses are what make our bi-annual trip to Nehalem Bay State Park so special. My parents not only have regular sized horses, they also have miniature horses. I just love these little guys! They are great with kids, but us adults have fun riding around on the carts, too. The older grandkids can ride them with a saddle, like Jessica (my sis's oldest daugther), above. She's got Hailey on the back of Baker Man.There are so many grandkids now, that it takes awhile to make sure they all get a good ride in. This is a picture of my dad, driving Baker Man (36" high) and my husband, Michael, driving Dough Boy (32" high). If my dad and I are driving together, we usually end up racing, kind of our running joke. You should see us drive go-carts!Here is a picture of my brother, Jerry, and Michael going up over the dune after driving the minis on the beach. You have to walk behind them in deep sand. By the time Michael got to the top, Hailey had fallen asleep on the seat. She rode like this all the way back to camp. She was one tired girl!Hailey and I went for a little ride on the Nellie. The horses get a lot of exercise when we go to the beach. I always enjoy riding with my dad.
My next post will include some funny around the camp-fire pictures, so stay tuned!
