Russell and I went to visit a farm today (while Meredith and Jason stayed home). I’d say most of our friends went – wow, was there a big crowd there! It was a combination of our church’s MOPs group, our Sunday school class, both of my play groups, and I’m sure some others too. I’m terrible at estimating, but I heard someone say that 40+ kids were there.
We saw the goats first. They were in a pen with turkeys, pigs, and peacocks.
Then Russell got to brush and pet some of the horses – right before he was shocked by an electric fence (not the fence in this picture). I’m not even kidding. Maybe he should have listened to me when I repeatedly told him not to touch the fence and that it would hurt! Hopefully it won’t cause lasting damage? I think Jason has touched one before…so if you know him, what does that say?
Anyway, here’s Russell with a horsey:
His favorite part of the experience: getting to hold a baby chick. He held 3 different ones, and he was very gentle.
Looking at the chicks – they were all saying “I want that one!”

I may add more photos from friends’ cameras later! Despite the “incident” we had a fun morning at the farm!
