Went to the Anaheim Packing House before heading to Zoomars petting zoo.
Delicious strawberries that we did not buy any of.
But Aiden was only into the watermelon.
THIS is MY kind of place.
Aiden was very eager to get on the swing.
Yay, that means I get to rest.
But this mellowness didn’t last long!
Aiden wanted to go upstars.
So much to see – no wonder he never wants to go home.
But he never ended up sitting on the John Deere Gator tractor.
Instead we walked around and around.
Daddie spent time doing some photographing – Nice!
Aiden’s favorite hangout here.
We watched the short video at least 10 times.
That was Mommie’s second resting spot.
When the restaurants started opening up, Aiden was being very naughty.
All that could stop him was FOOD!
Bad luck – nails in the car – took part of the fun out of it.
We are trying to convince Aiden to feed the guinea pigs.
He wasn’t interested, especially since he just woke up from a short nap in the car.
The only effort he was willing to exert was to hold our hand as we fed the guinea pigs.
Sorry Aiden, Mommie passed some of my fears over to you.
Train ride alone.
But Aiden is happy any way.
He loved to wave at us.
Free ride when you check in on Yelp.
Ride only goes round and round.
I actually feel he’d enjoy staying here longer.
He just woke up from his nap, so he’s got plenty of energy.
But we didn’t stay long.
We spent a few days prepping Aiden about riding a horse.
That morning Daddie even showed him Emma’s video of her “flying” on the horse.
That was definitely very helpful.
Now, to the highlight of the day.
Oh nasty, smelly horse poop.
We are warming him up to going on the horse.
He didn’t want to go on the white one.
He sad he wanted to go on the black one, maybe because we had pointed that horse from the beginning.
But then he was afraid.
To Daddie’s surprise Aiden was willing to go on the horse even though he was scared.
Daddie held his hand and walked with him.
I knew Aiden can do it!
Even without Daddie’s comforting hand.
Whoa cowboy, be careful there.
I guess he realized Daddie was away.
Haha, we are happier than Aiden!
Right after the ride we asked him if he wanted to go again.
But he said no.
It wasn’t until a few days later when he looked at the pictures again that he said he liked it.
And now he is imitating Emma flying
I think it’s the calmness of the horse that helped too.
It’s not the same when you’ve got an animal that’s charging at you or super hyper like a dog.
