Marlee's 2nd Field Trip

Marlee's Kindergarten had another field trip this week. And I was lucky enough to go again! We had almost a hour long bus ride north to the farm to see the baby animals. Marlee was amazed at how soft the sheep's wool was. Especially that little black lamb. But, she was a bit stunned to find out that people (her parents included) EAT lamb!! During our visit there, the sheep escaped. Just imagine 3 sheep running for their freedom, about 100, 6 year olds squealing in delight, and 4 grown men trying to herd them back into the stall. Man, I wish I had a picture of that moment . . .I love this picture of her holding the goat. She was not afraid to pick that kid up at all. And he had the cutest horns just starting to grow!Here's cute little Norman the bull - ummm, I mean steer. The "farmer" with Norman gave out waaaayyy too much information to these kids about how he became a steer a few days ago. See Marlee's face? She did not appreciate the details.But she did love the Shetland pony, TINKERBELL - The Wonder Horse. Every girl there fell in love (I think it had something to do with the name?)!!And last but not least, the 4 day old baby chicks. Her absolute favorite part! It was the perfect end to a very fun afternoon.

That is so cute, where is this place? They have something like this in Logan and they let kids hold the baby animals on Easter weekend. We took my nieces and nephews and it was really fun. I love seeing your little family grow up-you guys have the cutest kids ever!
