The Happiest $2 I Ever Spent. 

13 Sep

For about 8 years, I’ve had a $2 bill in my wallet. A long time ago someone told me that if you kept a $1 bill in your wallet, you’d always have money if you needed it. So, my lucky $2 bill has kept me out of trouble and I’ve never needed to spend it. 

Today though, we went on an adventure that wasn’t what we planned, but so much more fun. Heading for the Autry Museum turned into a detour to Travel Town, In-N-Out for lunch and PONY RIDES instead of naps! #momoftheyear

By the time we got to the ponies, we were out of cash. I had forgotten that the Griffith Park Pony Rides are CASH ONLY!!!! #worstmomoftheyear

My little cowboy was so sad!! The Trains took credit cards, but the ponies don’t. WTF GPPR?? 

While daddy and Remy headed for (another) train ride, I remembered that $2 bill in my wallet. Pony rides are $3, and what mom can’t scrounge $1 in change from the bottom of the car (sure it may be hiding under French fries, but you know it’s there somewhere). 

It was the best $2 I’ve ever spent. As the boys took off zooming past me on the train, I got to wave the pony ride ticket to show my boy. I didn’t get a pic of that smile, but let’s just say he was so happy. And that made it all worth it.

And then there’s me and the baby: 

 

Clearly, baby is jealous that he isn’t old enough for pony rides.
