on the farm

Today, we visited a farm with our playgroup. Those kids had so much fun! The moms did too, so that was a bonus.

We started out by feeding the goats.

Surprisingly, even Mia got in on the feeding action. I was shocked that none of the kids were really scared of the goats.
Here's Caleb feeding a few little goats.

Piper thought there was way cooler stuff than goats, so she went exploring.

Marshall is somewhere under that sombrero (haha).

Here's Egan and me while feeding the goats.

Then we took a hay ride. All the kids loved that, and I don't think there was an unhappy one on the ride.

Egan loved it, but refused to look at the camera for all the excitement that was happening around him. He's so serious!

There were some really big horses. I mean HUGE.

Even some longhorns.

And some geese.

And a bunch of little monkeys... I mean cute kids. (No, I have no idea what Egan is planning to do to Jake. I can't be good though.)

This was our tour guide. He wasn't too excited about a bunch of moms with cameras and babies, but he warmed up to us by the end.

We're about to check out the huge horses.

Here they are. They really don't seem as big in this picture as they really were. The tour guide was tall, and he is closer to the camera than the horses, so the scale is a bit off.

Here's my view of Egan through the "sunroof" of his stroller.

Here he is at lunchtime. Nothing like a cheese tortellini, chicken, peas, carrots, green beans, and chick pea lunch to fill your tummy. Oh, and a whole banana and some cranberries too.

While we were on the tour, our guide showed us the goose eggs and the one that was in the process of hatching. At that point there was a hole in the egg that was about an inch big. Before we left, he came and told us it had hatched. Here he/she is!

That was our trip to the farm. It was so much fun!
