A Dream Come True.

One of my dreams came true while in Utah. I've always wanted to ride in a one horse open sleigh. I expressed this a few times to Tyson and one time to Becky. She to has wanted to ride in a one horse open sleigh, so for my birthday we went. We had a great time. It was only 30 minutes, but it was long enough.
Becky had originally set up for the sleigh that you see in the movies. However, due to a storm the night before, they couldn't dig it out. Instead we got the hay bales. None the less, we still enjoyed the ride. We left the twins at home because I didn't think they would enjoy it as much and then I wouldn't enjoy myself either. Pretty selfish.
While waiting to for our sleigh ride, Jaxson rode his own horse. He loves horses so much.

Poor Tyson was the first one on the sleigh so he sat closest to the horses. This was a very large mistake as he is allergic to horses. He thought he was far enough away that he'd be okay. He wanted Jaxson to be able to see the horse, thus he sat close. Poor guy. He was trying to be a good daddy by getting Jaxson close to the horses.
After the one horse open sleigh ride, we went to dinner. We had a great time. Thanks so much Mom and Dad Broderick for a dream come true.

This was a killer icicle found at the restaurant that we ate at. Tyler was having fun breaking them off from the roof of the restaurant.
