Santa Sleigh Ride!

So today we went on this at Pollok Park:

Santa Sleigh Ride Pollok House

Glasgow City Council own Clydesdale Horses stabled in Pollok park and Glasgow Green which are sometimes used to offer dray rides to the public (we were on another one a few months back at Hogganfield Park).

What a great morning out! Ethan got to meet Santa (again) who specifically cancelled his snowboarding and snow mobile practice to see Ethan for the 3rd Saturday in a row. We then rode around Pollok park in a 'santa sleigh' dray driven by two of Santas many elves and Clydesdale Horses with santa hats. We sang christmas carols and listen to christmas music whilst enjoying a cloudy, but rare dry and calm December day in Glasgow! The dray ride lasted around 20 minutes (though I didn't check) and afterwards in the visitor centre there were activities put on to make bird feeders, christmas decorations and colour in pictures of local wildlife.

Ethan really enjoyed himself, but unfortunately took a bit of a tumble on the walk out of the park and scraped his forehead pretty bad on the tarmac. We took him to the A&E at Yorkhill just in case as the bump looked quite large. Thankfully he was given a clean bill of health and was out after a short waiting time. The tumble didn't seem to bother Ethan anywhere near as much as it effected Mum and Dad! He is very well now and we gave him one of his Christmas presents 2 weeks early which he was chuffed to bits with - a woollen dinosaur we've named 'Stompy' - roar!
