Summer Polo Games

I am still trying to get all my photos of our summer fun organized and done…And one thing we did this June and July was spend some Sunday afternoons at the polo field.  You have the option of paying for a ticket in the tents which is where the VIPs hang out, or you can pay for parking and do it tailgating style along the east side of the field, which is what we preferred to do.  You literally back up your car to the edge of the field and pitch a tent for shade, set up chairs, table, blankets, toys, etc…You can bring your own food and drinks, and kick back and watch the game. The first time we went, it was just the 3 of us.

The fun part is halfway through the game they have a divot stomp, so we took Jacob out into the field and showed him how to tun over the divots and stomp them into the ground.

We went back with some friends a couple weeks later.

The best part is there is so much grassy area for the kids (and dogs) to run around.  On this particular day, Jacob was keeping Justin busy by pulling down the fence every couple of minutes.

It is a fun relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon with family and friends.  Can’t wait to do it again next summer!
