Angel and I had a field trip last week. To a REAL field. With REAL animals…
On a REAL farm. A farm that has been in the same family for over 350 years, that continues to survive and thrive here in our little part of the world.
We were already well-aquainted with the wonderful things they grow and raise at Simmons Farm. Their eggs, yogurt, goat cheese, and produce – Hey! I can’t grow everything we need, even though I try! – regularly find their way into my market basket at the Saturday Farmer’s Market. Today, we were going to the farm’s petting zoo, to acquaint ourselves with some of the animals.
Angel quickly introduced herself to a roaming Fainting Goat and a young turkey…
then got down to the business of making some new friends.
A little snack always helps break the ice.
Girls can always discuss hairstyles…”How DO you get it so soft, Lambie?”
Once you’re accepted by part of the group…
The rest of the gang won’t be far behind!
Not that kind of ‘behind’.
