Green Meadows Petting Farm

Today, Grandma, Daniel and I chaparoned the Pre-K field trip to Green Meadows Petting Farm. Joshua's class did this same field trip last month, so last night he was coaching me on what to expect. We all had a great time and came back exhausted. I took over 100 pictures today on the trip, but I'm only posting a few. At the end of the day, the kids (and grown-ups) were allowed to pick a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch to take home. We love pumpkin patches.

One of my favorite parts of the day was watching the kids run around the chicken coop trying to catch chickens. Megan did not catch this chicken, someone else was holding it and passed it off to her. Megan held this chicken for about a half a mili-second. It's a good thing I had the camera at the ready!

The kids got to ride horses again, and were thrilled!

The goat feeding frenzy was pretty funny. Daniel kept giggling when the goats were licking his hand.

Megan drew quite a crowd of goats with her goat-feed.

The kids (and grown-ups) really enjoyed themselves. Through-out the day we also took a hayride, a trainride and saw many, many animals.

It was so nice to be able to visit such a hands-on learning place. The kids all listened well and were very respectful to the animals.
