Moo, Baa, La La La (Best Shot Monday 5/5/08)

On Saturday we packed up the kids, met up with my sister and her beau, and took a trip to our local farm.

We saw…

and cows.

And then we learned to moo like them.

Ava brushed a horse and went for a ride on a pony. Both kiddos fed the goats. Ava took a turn on the tire swing and played in the tree fort, while Julian took a turn on the horse swing.

We also saw chickens, llamas, rabbits, a turtle, ducks, a donkey,

a beautiful view,

  1. What fun!! I love visiting farms with kids. I really like the shot with the horse and your best shot!
    Happy Monday!

  2. Oh Amy! Those are great! My parents just took my kids to an event called “Farm Days” at our local university extension program. They got to see all kinds of farm animals! They thought it was the most fun EVER! It’s such a rewarding experience for our children – we are great parents :) :) :) LOL

  3. First thing, I totally laughed at your title. :) Great pictures of all the animals, too – sounds like a great afternoon!

  4. Baby animals rule – not many things can make me happier than that. Except maybe chocolate. And ketchup.

  5. Cute calf, but I like Julian’s expression with the horse. What a great experience for them.

    (Had trouble with the pictures when I clicked on them.)

  6. Such a very good thing to know… how to MOO. awesome.

  7. Wonderful photos! I love the baby calf! So precious!! :)

  8. Great photos that capture a fun weekend. farms are so great for kids, aren’t they. Even I secretly enjoy them. Whenever we go to a farm, I am reminded of how my kids make me do stuff that I would never otherwise do – and I end up enjoying it!

  9. Great pics – I haven’t met a kid yet that didn’t love a farm!

  10. Such great shots! I love going to farms…I wouldn’t want to live on one I don’t think, but they sure are fun to visit!

  11. Love your BSM shot! Sounds like you had a great time!

  12. How fun. I grew up in the country but live in the “big city” now. Nothing makes me feel better than taking the boys up to Youngstown Ohio to spend the time at their dairy farm. Those are memories they’ll have forever!

  13. It looks like you guys ad a great time. I love all of the shots.

  14. This is such a fabulous idea for helping kids connect with animals and I love that unlike a visit to the city zoo, it features local livestock and happens to be completely free. We’re planning a farm visit sometime soon!

  15. looks like fun! we should find a farm, i bet there’s one around here somewhere…

  16. Hi Amy,
    I love the title- We love Sandra Boyton too! Great farm photo’s. The calf photo is darling. Our Palimino horse, China, is due in a few weeks! Tristan loves going to Grandma’s where the horses and cows are! BTW- My little guy has the same adorable hat as Julian. Sooo cute!! :)
