We took advantage of another great perk to our area - resident appreciation day at Arlington Park got us free admission for a fun-filled day watching the horses race! Look how excited Ben is to watch the horses come in for the big finish!
Ben and Abbey in front of the track.
It was also family day at the park (which occurs on most Sunday's I think), which meant other fun activities for the kids. Here is Ben showing us how easy it is to be a jockey.
And here is Abbey screaming and clinging to Daddy for dear life because he put her on a pony.
Here is how she spent the rest of her pony ride...
They also had a petting zoo with free feed to give the animals - very fun!
And of course, how could the day be complete without rolling down some hills in the soft summer grass?
