Farm Field Trip!
Well today was the day to visit the farm! Bunny was very excited last night and she didn’t sleep well! We left first thing this morning! Pants on, shoes ready for mud, and the girls bursting! It has that very delightfully tacky look of a small tourist-y type place! There were pens of animals everywhere, hand painted signs with animal names on them, and all the mud and whatnot you expect to find on a farm! Right when we got out of the car there was a few turkeys that were waiting for us! This of course freaked Pup out and she wouldn’t set foot on the ground! 🙂 So out came the stroller and we headed out to see the goats. The nice thing about this farm is that they gave us as much bread as we wanted to feed the animals with! So we could feed them, and feed them, and feed them. May not be the best for the animals, but fun for us! 🙂 Then we saw the pig (she weighed 1100 lbs and was HUGE), we saw the horses, the ponies, the sheep, and the Llamas! They had all sorts of ducks, and geese, and turkeys, and pheasants, and peacocks! Yes…Peacocks! They have 11 of them. Our zoo doesnt even have one! Then the girls got to hold a Bunny! These were the calmest sweetest Bunnies ever! Pup LOVED them! She held it for a long time! Then we headed over to see the baby goats! They were so tiny and cute! They got her out of the pen and then let us pet her. She was so unhappy about being away from mama, and her mama was bleating for her too! It was too cute! The girls loved her. Next we went to see the cows! They had miniature cows that were about half size. Pup really thought they were fun to feed! Then they got a Jersey cow out for us to milk! That’s right….they got to milk the cow for real! Bunny milked her exactly one time! I did it a few time, but Pup refused! It was fun! Then we fed the cows, to thank then for being so nice! Finally, the girls got to take a ride on the little barrel train! This was Bunny’s favorite part! All in all it was a lot of fun! Very laid back, but good information. I loved that it was very personal and easy! We may do it again sometime! Here are the great pics of our trip:

Hey Stephanie it’s Adriennie! LOVED your Farm day pics. I just finished looking through them with my oldest and he is SOOOOO excited to (one day) visit a farm. He was naming the animals and all and we loved the barrel train especially! My son has decided now that he wants to learn how to milk a cow! I’ll have to research whether or not we have any farms nearby that offer tours because this would be sooo much fun. A nice break from ‘city’ life. LOL. Ohh and a picnic lunch on the farm would be the icing on the cake!

So much fun! Robert’s parent’s farm has TONS of peacocks. They’re actually really destructive and loud. It’s funny that something so pretty can be such a nuisance. That’s so cool that you milked a cow. I’ve never done that before. I’m glad you had a great time and I’m excited to see what you come up with for the zoo theme.
