The other day when I was taking Daphne to her music lessons we drove by this petting zoo type place. I mentioned it to Jade when I got home and we thought what the heck, it's nice and close and the girls will be able to feed the animals. We grabbed some carrots, celery, lettuce, apples and bread and made our way out to the farm.
This is the sign at the entrance to the farm
This goat was pretty excited to see Daphne and her leaf of romaine lettuce. You can see in the background, Lucy...not so sure!
Daphne wasn't too sure about letting these guys get too close to her fingers!
This guy was especially picky. He just smelled the food then kind of stuck up his nose and walked away.
Here is Daphne on a mission with her bag of food to feed the animals!!
Lucy liked to break off little pieces of bread and put it through the fence for the geese
The deer were pretty uninterested, but still fun to look at
Lucy broke her bread pieces and fed them to the birds too
This goat liked his carrot from Daphne
The donkey was very gentle taking his food from little fingers
Little candid shot of this monkey
Driving the homemade car
Lucy checking out the home made car
Now she's got the hang of it
This was Jade's favourite guy! He was quite photogenic
And believe it or not, very very gentle when taking food from little fingers....and big fingers too!
The cow on the other hand - was a bit rammy
Lucy with some help from Aunt Jacqui gave him a piece of celery
Lucy was NOT sure of this fella at all! She had a piece of celery in her hand and she would NOT feed it to him. No amount of convincing. She was so NOT impressed by him! It was funny
Daphne fed him though.
They had a couple of toys to climb and play on. This one was on a big spring so it rocked back and forth when she sat in it.
And they had an old snowmobile to climb on as well
This old guy was hot and tired and climbed inside this tire to have a rest.
When we got home it was time for crafts!!!!!
Daphne and Lucy have this cute book called Room on the Broom and they also have the little tv show of it as well. So.........
We made our own brooms!
Daphne also made a chicken - we have been showing her the sign (as in sign language) for chicken
This was Daphne's creation when left alone with glue and googly eyes and buttons!
This is Jacqui's chicken/red bird!
Before Courtney and Jay left, they left a present for Daphne and Lucy for a night when they were asking about them. To be honest they didn't have tears about them being gone. Daphne asked about them a bit, but not in a sad way. A couple of times she said she missed them. I think a big part of that was the girls were in bed when they left for the airport. I told them I had a present for them from their mom and dad. I asked them to sit up on the bed and wait for me.
The anticipation builds.........
the face.....the sweet facial expressions of these two are the best
The fun books Mom and Dad gave the girls.
And this face....well this is the face that makes Ms. Trunchbull come out!!!!!!
