We headed in and made our way to the hay ride.
This is a Scottish Highlands Cow that I initially photographed for our friends Pat and Kim who spent five years in Scotland while Pat studied to become a vet.
However, after I took the first picture, she decided to wander over to the wagon,
and have a bite to eat!
After the hay ride the children all got to feed the goats.
The girls did a great job using "precious heart hands" (like we do at yoga) to feed the goats.

Seriously, we need to move to a small farm.
Baby goats are truly about the most fabulous creatures ever.
Emma sat on this rock for quite some time hoping that the goats would climb on her like they did to me.
Finally, one climbed up!
And this sweet calf could have come home with us too.
Emma was a big fan of Teddy, the Scottish Highlands Calf.
"Mama, when I get bigger can I bring a bunny home?"

Emma had a wonderful time painting polka dots on her arms.
We had a most fabulous day and were so thrilled to have been invited to tag along!
Grace spent a lot of time this afternoon and evening talking about all the fun she had today, and I do believe that if Em had more words she would have been jabbering on along with Grace too. The girls really would do quite well on a small farm, or even just some land with various animals. Hopefully some day we can make that dream come true. For now, we will continue to enjoy our visits to various farms and other areas that have animals and local produce/goods.
Thanks, Molly for a super fun day!
Have a wonderful night, sweet friends.
We'll see you tomorrow.
