My grandmother is Director of Security at Tampa Bay Downs. While we were visiting her in Tampa, we decided to go to her work to see the horses (Alex had been talking about it for a few weeks). Alex had a very full morning. He got to sit on a horse, drive/ride in a big green tractor, got a pair of glasses from one of the jockey's, drove a golf cart and sit in a police car and activate the sirens and lights. All of that happened before noon...he is a lucky little boy!
Thanks Grandma for having such a cool place for us to come visit!
Here are some pictures of Alex on the horse...he really liked it:
Feeding the horse some peppermints...yes, horses like peppermint:
Grandma and Alex looking in at the horses:
Alex on top of the big horse! He loved it:
Love this one:
He was so excited watching the other horses get fed. They were neighing and jumping around like crazy. Alex thought it was great :)
