Petting Zoo

So yesterday one of my students at work told me about the Horse Club Community Service night which was last night. Each year they have to do some kind of community service project and for the past 2 years they have set up a petting zoo at the Animal Science Arena here at SDSU. Anyone who wants to come has to bring items for the food shelf and then you can spend all the time you want with the animals. So last night we thought we would go and see what it was all about. Trevor had a great time!! They had tons of animals there to look at such as different kinds of horses, cows, sheep, goats, rabbits and many more. We spent about an hour walking around looking at all of them and then came the fun part. They were offering horse rides and Trevor said "daddy I want to do that" Jon looked at me and was like well what do you think? I thought for sure we would stand in line and then get up there and he would not do it but man was I wrong. The whole time he was like "we are almost there, it is almost my turn" when we got up there he put his helmet right on and got right up on the horse. He was a rockstar!!!! He smiled the whole time, loving every minute of it. They go around the arena twice and then give the next kid a turn and Trevor said to the lady "can I go again" and she said no we have to give the other little kids a turn, Trevor looked at her again and said "please". But it did not work I just thought it was cute he is working his charm at the age of 2. Overall we had a great time and we will have to go back next year!!
