Few words Wednesday: A day at the Farmstead

As the weather dropped out of the 100's into the 80's and it is Aidan's last week of summer vacation (insert sigh) we thought we would take in the local children's farmstead

We had taken Dariya to PetsMart the other day and she was NOT at all excited about being there or seeing the animals so I wasn't sure what to expect at the farmstead.  

She surprised me and loved the place.  She was signing chicken, fish, duck and cow after seeing them!  YAHOO!

One lady came up and asked how old the girls were and when I told her she complemented them on how well behaved they were. (obviously she didn't see the toilet paper unrolling contest that the two of them shared yesterday LOL)

Aidan showing the girls how to saddle up in the dairy barn.

Aidan was the duck whisperer and the girls were loving them coming so close as Aidan fed them

But, the best thing we saw at the Farmstead was our favorite UPS guy.  Jason (that is hubby and daddy for those of you who are new to our blog) just happened to be on this route today and called to tell us and meet us before we headed home for lunch and naps.

*** Please excuse cell phone pics as I was too lazy to take my good camera along!

I love watching you show Dariya how beautiful the world all around her really is. She has so much she has missed all these years and you, my friend, are so lucky you get to show her all the beauty that surrounds her.

Elijah and Rachel have TP unrolling contests too! :-) Glad she did well w/ the animals.

The first time I read your blog I was a bit confused by the "favorite UPS man". LOL I did figure it out though. Glad you clarified for others. :-)

LOL! Thanks for the UPS Man clarification. I would've been stumped!

Looks like they had a great day! Incidentally, I didn't realize until yesterday that I wasn't actually already following your blog! I thought for sure I was...weird. Anyway, glad to be following now. :-) The video at the top made me cry - just beautiful!!!

Love it. But I especially love that you have your very own brown truck entourage. If we ever meet you guys in person, I'm certain that Piper would insist on staying at your house. She's very impressed by big trucks these days... Thank GOODNESS she hasn't figured out that those big trucks have goodies in the back- I can see her running down the street after the truck now... :)
