The boys turned five the day before school started. They had a great weekend of celebrating. Grandpa and Grandma Bemis made the trip to Des Moines on Saturday to start the festivities. We all went to Taki restaurant, where they cook the food in front of you. The kids love this place and it’s a definite special treat.
Sunday morning, each boy woke up in a room full of balloons, our family tradition. We did presents, church, then got ready for the pony party!
Grandshe, Grandma, Grandpa, and a handful of the boys’ friends came to the Irish Run Horse Farm. Our friend Calla taught the kids how to groom the horses, what they eat, and how to take care of them. After that we took turns riding horses in the barn, played a few games, and opened presents. It was a great day!
