Field Trip #2

Now, a week out, I’m going to recap our State Fair trip.  We had such a good time.  It was such a good experience for the boys to see a lot of different animals up close and personal.  If we ever own the on-and-off again daydream of a few acres and a few farm animals, the kids better decide which they like.  It’s going to be difficult finding just the right animals. 😉

Goats: Dinosaur likes them.

Cows: Most of the kids liked them.

Sheep: None of the kids liked them.

Horses: None of the kids liked them (we’ll hold verdict until Princess is six or so).

Chickens: Not so bad, but ducks are a favorite.

Rabbits: Pretty universally liked.

Pigs: Trooper liked them.

So, cows and rabbits?  One goat? One pig?  Who knows.  At any rate, we don’t have acreage.  Rabbits it may be.

Of course, we also saw a lot of John Deere action….

The boys tried some hands-on pretend farm play, but the lines got too long at one point and enthusiasm evaporated.  Trooper had a pony ride, and he was so good.  He had such a fun time!

Saving the most interesting sight for last….
