Old MacColey had a farm
The other day, Nicole and I took the kids to "Underwood Family Farms". Nicole had first told me about it last year when Savannah's school went there on a field trip. Nicole said it is a huge deal here in SoCal, and yet we never made it there until this past week. It was a lot of fun to watch the kids laugh at all the different animals and see how happy they were. Little kids are amazing. If Nicole and I went to a farm on our own, I'm certain we would both be whining about how dirty it was and how smelly the animals are. But with the help of two little kids the farm was a ton of fun! We are so lucky to have such fun little kids. My favorite part of the farm was the little goats. They had a fenced in pen which had an old rusted out truck parked in the center. There were wooden walkways that led from the back of the pick-up truck up into the sky, across the dirt path, and onto small little perches, then down into smaller little pens. People would feed the goats carrots, then when the people would walk away, the goats would climb up on the walkways and follow the people clear across the walkway and into the smaller pens, trying to get more food. I'm gonna buy one for a pet cause I'm almost certain that my little dog can't do anything that cool. Plus, it could keep my grass mowed, and carrots are way cheaper for treats than doggy treats!
