Birthday Well-Spent

Our road trip to Williamsburg Virginia was a blast.  We left here early on the 6th of July and did not arrived on our destination till late in the afternoon.  As we were approaching the hotel vicinity, we passed by  a fenced in  property with horses.  So when we   had our rest, we went out the hotel and walked to the place where we saw the horses.  
 Our daughter's birthday is perfect for road trips  and that's what we always do  for a few years now instead of having a party, we do take time to go out on the road and explore   a place we have never been to.  They wanted to see Busch Garden this year so that's  why we went to Williamsburg.  It was beautiful out there although super humid.  
  The horses were very friendly, they were in the middle of the fence gracing but when they saw us, they came  and greeted us.  This one here is very friendly.  The kiddos named him Prince.    
We gave him an apple and he gobbled it in no time.  

Just being together on the road is fun for us.  The kids are great travelers, they make sure to entertain themselves while   in the car.  Our son can be a little too much for our daughter to handle sometimes but  they do compliment each other.  I don't think one will be happy without the other.  
I can't believe our daughter is 11 years old!  It doesn't seem like it's been that long since I became a Mom!  I thank God everyday for the gift of Motherhood.  
Here's how entertaining  this little lady can be on the road.  We were listening to the msong "I can't feel my face" but  it got muted on youtube due to copyright issue so  I replaced with this music.

This looks like a great way to spend the day together. We love road trips. We have 3 toddlers so they can be a little less enjoyable these days but I'm thinking about heading out on one with just the big kids this weekend!

Horses! What a great adventure. I have been taking quite a few road trips this summer. I am about to head out on another one to Indiana to a friends ranch / farm. I can't wait to ride the horses.

I really love you travel during her birthday instead of a party. It is awesome when you can travel each year together as a family. The video is so cute and they both do really entertain themselves. Thanks for sharing your experience and Happy birthday to your daughter.

What a great adventure! I just love horses. Years ago we had a backyard that went right up to a horse pasture. They would come to my fence and I would spend a lot of time petting them.
