The pony party was totally awesome. The birthday boy was gracious, especially for a two year old. The ponies did not disappoint:
Samson never actually smiled during his pony ride, but he didn't cry either. Success!
Being the exceptional parent that I am, my favorite part was when Samson got bit by a chicken. He stuck his wee little finger through the wire on the chicken coop, and hilarity ensued. Also tears. And screaming.
Super bonus: these beyond creepy dolls in the ghost town section of the train ride. You know I love 'em!
