Farm outing

Emma and Johnny looking up

Tuesday I decided to take the kids raspberry picking. They were very excited, but when they saw that we would have to walk through some overgrown bushes to get to the raspberries they decided they were NOT interested. So, we bought some corn, peaches, and tomatoes, and opted to visit the farm animals instead. Emma and Johnny were especially impressed by this goat, who was about thirty feet up in the air. I was impressed that Emma managed to figure out that he got there by climbing a series of ramps.

The goat Emma and Johnny were looking at 
Not the outing I planned, but still fun, memorable, and educational.

  2. I would not have gone through that overgrown patch either! We have one of those goat things at our Pumpkin Patch.

    Cute picture of Emma.

  3. Too funny that the kids didn’t want to pick up berries, but at least they enjoyed visiting the animals. I wish there were any pickings close to where we live.

  4. Love love love that picture of them peering up at the goat! What an unique view of a farm animal, from far below. :) And yes, Emma was very clever to figure out how he got up there.

    Once again, it pays to be flexible with young children in tow. Glad you enjoyed such a fun day out!

  5. @Christy – I lucked out with the animals this time round. WAY better than my attempt at an aquarium in NJ – the kids spent the entire visit running through an empty room – presumably used for birthday parties?
