As you know, I have been to Critter Farm before. My family, on the other hand, had not. This was their first time getting to experience the sights and sounds of real farm life!
S had a few firsts this time around. His first time handling a freshly laid egg.
And, of course, his first time in a pair of rubber boots. Can you look any better in a pair of rubber boots?
G was totally in awe of the chickens....even if it was a little chilly out here when the sun was going down.
Here they come!
G looking around happily.
He was very intrigued by Roopert. I think he was very fascinated that such a little bird could make such a loud noise.
And I am convinced that K is a real natural. Or, maybe, it had something to do with her great teacher! Either way she had a great time being with the chickens and feeding them and helping out with random chicken tasks.
G became fast friends with Danni from the first time he spoke with her on the phone many, many months ago. So, when we arrived at her place, it didnt surprise me at all that he loved being near her. No matter if they were headed to the chicken coop to see the flock or exploring and finding great, squirmy bugs.
And look. There were still a few of these hanging around. The bright, red berries looked so happy when the skies were a little gray.
