Baby Animal Days

The kids and I had such a fun outing on Saturday! (Unfortunately, Steve was working helping someone with their house, so it was just the three of us.)
The American West Heritage Center in Wellsville (not too far from Logan) hosted Baby Animal Days where they let everyone come and visit - and pet - the new baby farm animals. We all had a blast!! Joseph loved being about to be so close to all of the animals that we've talked about (and hasn't stopped talking about it since) and Kathrynn just LOVED being there - she was smiling and squealing almost the entire time. :)

Baby Sheep

Baby Cow (There was a little boy in the pin who asked what the cow's name was. A farmer on hand answered that he had no name and then leaned over to the boy's dad and said "I guess you could call him 'Big Mac.'" The sad irony is that Joe and I got hamburgers on our way home that day..)

Joseph keeps a safe distance from the cow.. he was like this most of the time - very wary around the animals, but loved seeing them up close.

Kathrynn was a total trooper - never complained about staying in the stroller and just LOVED being there. :)

My munchkins. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get them both to look at the camera at the same time!

Mama Horse and Baby Horse

Joseph got a massive kick out of the baby chicks. :)

The only animal he actually pet - a baby duck. He loved it!

There was an event called the "Candy Cannon." They shot candy out of these little cannons and the little kids (5 & under) ran out to this field and gathered as much candy as they could. In this picture, Joseph is being his total self and giving a handful of candy that he found to a seriously cute little girl. He's such a lady's man. :)

This is the view from the ranch. Isn't it just GORGEOUS?!

They're so cute!! Yeah, Joseph would get a kick out of these chicks alright. We have 3 little Banty's and 2 white ones, the rest are Rhode Island Reds. Lots for him to go crazy over.

Love you
