it has been sooo beautiful and autumny here, so to celebrate we decided to go on an adventure to maple wood farm.. a local small farm/business. there, ngaio met her first goat(and a very sweet one too!) elwynn practiced being one and and i got to "ooh" and "ahh" at the beuatiful sheep. i guess loving sheep comes with loving wool..we also saw "daisy" the cow being milked(though i was kind of sad when the farmer told the kids that cow milk is for humans, not baby cows.. yeah, i know that cows make a LOT of milk.. but isn't it kind of creepy to milk the cow then give her baby a bottle? i think so..) all in all it was a fantastic day on the farm.
oh how i wish i had a farm of my own..
