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:

We had a ton of fun and it was a great way to end our Farm theme! The next theme that I am working on is…no surprise…a zoo theme! Bunny’s pick! I have to get thinking!
