Every fall, one of the doctors at the hospital hosts quite the event at his house called, "Ride and Seek." There are many activities.... a petting zoo, pony rides, bounce houses, pirate ship, tractor ride, pumpkins, food, games, face painting.... among many others.
Michael wasn't scared at all to pet the chicken.

Michael was so excited for his pony ride.
Michael wanted to hold the girl's hand during his pony ride when the ride got a little bumpy. Once he got used to the motion and was perfectly fine, he STILL wouldn't let go of her hand. I love the mischievous smile.
Emma even took a little turn on the pony.
Abby was a natural on the horse.

There really was fun for all ages. Emma loved playing in the swing while Abby and Michael played on the pirate ship.
On the way back to the car, each child was able to pick a big pumpkin to keep.
It was a great afternoon. The toughest part was convincing the children that it really was time to go home!
