Davis Farmland

We had a long weekend for Patriot's Day, so we took AJ to the local farm this morning to see all the animals. He was a little nervous at first, but then he really got into it and even helped feed them. We've been starting to teach him animal sounds lately, and since going there he's happily saying "moo", and "baa", and "cluck". The funny thing is whenever we ask him one that he's forgotten, his answer is "boo".

Early on we got to see them bottle feeding a calf. This one was only 7 days old!

Isaac held a cute little baby goat!

These goats had a climbing structure to hang out on.

We took a hay ride and saw some horses, cows, and deer.

Later on, AJ excitedly fed this little goat, who was super friendly.

He'd happily pull out the feed cup for the animals once he got used to it.

He was super excited to get on the pony after watching some other kids go for a ride.

He did a great job!

All smiles!

This was my favorite animal of the day!

And, what day would be complete without checking out a new slide?

We had a great morning together, and I really enjoyed having Isaac help AJ at the farm. I'm getting too big to do so much bending over and carrying! Aidan fell asleep on the way home and slept for 3 and half hours! And I slept for 2 hours... :-)

It was really cold and rainy from Friday to Sunday, but we still got some landscaping done in the font, and Isaac got the deck cleaned and ready to re-seal. We're both absolutely exhausted!

Aha, now I understand the comment about going to "The Farm"! Looks like you had a great time and I'm glad Isaac was there to help with carrying AJ around! You must be getting knackered each day by now!

And that's a Llama!
