Down on the farm

Trace has wanted to ride a horse since we moved to Wyoming. He finally got his chance and loved every minute of it.
Jaxson was so funny. He was scared to death of the chickens and goats and turkeys, but as soon as we got to the cows and Clydesdale's he was in heaven. He wanted to pet them and get up funny!

This scale showed the kids how they measured up to the animals. Trace was apparently pretty close to a goat!

Kena milking a cow. They had a plaster cow that had a bottle nipple attached to it so the kids could pretend. It was really cute to see them try.

Jaxson couldn't get enough of this cow. He didn't even want to go see the real animals. He would have been content just to hang out with his cow friend all day!

This weekend we went with Cory's parents to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point. For any of you looking for an inexpensive way to entertain you kiddo's this is a good on. Admission is only 3.75 and the animals are awesome. As an added bonus we were there for the baby animals birthday party...which means there was cake! Woo hoo. We rode horses and played games, and even saw some baby animals. Everyone had a really great time. Thanks for the fun time Grandma and Papa!

We also got to see Grandpa Hadley graduate. We were so proud of him and everyone sat still and quietly through the whole ceremony! Congrats Papa!

It looks like so much fun! How I wish Grandpa Ellsworth still had his dairy! Think how much Jaxon would like that! They could milk a real cow then.

That is so great that Bro. Hadley graduated! Which school?

I'm glad the weather was good for you. Now it's back to being gloomy and miserable.
