For Katie’s birthday and just ‘cuz…
We went to our town’s Baby Animal Days.
It was run by our local 4-H and they were awesome. For $25 per family, we could see a handful of cows, sheep, goats, pigs, geese, ducklings, chicks, 1 mini horse, bunnies, and turkeys. The kids loved it.
My youngest daughter is rather obsessed with cows.
For her birthday today, she received a cow bank from my parents, cow Webkinz, a Sandra Boynton cow CD and book, and a little cow vacuum to suck up table crumbs. And she already has quite a cow collection. So seeing these cute little guys made her day.
Unfortunately, they were all huddled together in fear and we didn’t get to pet them, but they sure were cute!
Fun pics! The kids made animals sounds for the first one and buzzed like bees for the flower pic. Funny!
Alex loved petting the sheep…until the sheep turned around to face him and check him out and he stumbled back so fast it was hilarious!
Then we found The Tent. Baby chicks and ducklings and bunnies! That you could hold and pet! Hurry!
Liz loved on a muddy duckling for about a second. It was wet! ew! But we wanted to take one home and name it Henry, like in The Little Duck.
Baby chicks were much cleaner and softer. Cuteness!
Tori really loved the chicks.
Alex LOVED the bunny.
There were sweet gray bunnies with their mama.
We love baby animals!
