christina and i took the kids to family day at the del mar racetrack. i have never been there before. it was a long long drive. not too long to get there but the drive home took three hours! traffic was really bad. it was fun though. each of the kids got a free webkinz pony and there was tons of fun stuff for them to do. they had the whole infield set up with free activities for the kids. there were two huge blow up obstacle courses, pony rides, booths to create paper hats, airbrush tatoos, sand art stations, and more. it was too bad that the lines were crazy long. it made the experience much less fun. we stayed for about four hours and then it was time to go. mason and dahlia were getting tired. i was bummed that we really didn't get to see a horse race. you can't really see anything from the infield. you can barley see the horses run by. when we left the kid area everyone was too tired to go watch a race. if we do this again next year i will definitely watch a race.
