Grammy invited us to join her at the Los Alamitos Race Course today, where they had their Annual Wiener Dog Races to benefit the Seal Beach Animal Care Center. The dogs were so cute! I had heard about the wiener dog races at Old World, and it seemed like a cute thing to see with the family…. but the races at the Race Course were a huge deal! The place was packed and , from our viewpoint, the itty bitty pups were hard to see. Luckily, these guys were all over the place. My favorite was the little guy above with flames painted across his body. Diesel needs to get himself some flames too! Lol.
In between the trials, they had horse races too. Grammy showed Kristina and I how to place a bet on some horses. Not really sure what we were doing, we picked some numbers and went back to our seats to check out the race. After the race, we went to scan our bet card, and it turns out… we won some money back… we just about broke even! Pretty neat for not knowing what the heck we were doing.
We went to Atlantis Play Center to check out the new splash pad they opened up last month. Tuggy loved it. Glad to see that they are bringing in new “attractions” to this park.
Larry used to come here as a kid, and its fun to see that some of the things he loved about it as a kid, like this giant sea dragon slide, haven’t changed.
