Hold Your Horses!


My good friend Rebecca and I took our boys out to Davis Farmland for the day today.  It has a little bit of everything: petting zoo, pony rides, splash park, and playgrounds.  We didn’t get to spend as much time there as we would have liked, but Robbie and Pete had a blast while we were there!

The boys were ready to go as soon as they got in their car seats.  Rebecca and I, however, required a little coffee.

As soon as we got there, we got feeding cups for the boys to feed the animals.  This place has an incredible set-up for letting kids see and interact with the animals.  There are “cuddle pens” where kids can go in and actually play with the animals.  We hit up the cow cuddle pen first.

And then the boys rode some horses.  The entire time we waited in line, Robbie kept saying, “Horse.  Ride.  Fun.  Ride horse, Mama.”  He started to panic when I put him on the horse (he even lost his shoe), but he held it together pretty well and rode like a champ.  They didn’t even use anyone to hold him on.  Nona would be so proud!

After that, we made our way to the llamas.  It needed to be brushed, and Pete and Rob were up for the job.

And then the goats, who loved Robbie.

But they didn’t think he was feeding them fast enough.  One goat took matters into his own hands and grabbed the cup.

And then it was off to the splash park.  The boys took off in separate directions, but I managed to grab a few pictures of them together.

Unfortunately, my battery died before we got to the bubble pool…  But let me tell you it was amazing.  Tons of suds, slippery surface, little kids.  Yeah.  I know.  I really wish I had pictures, too.

And at the end of our fun adventure?  I came home to this.

Not bad for a Wednesday.
