A Trip to the Farm...

Today we had a field trip with Maeve's daycare class... except, it wasn't a field trip, because they don't do those anymore... so, we've labeled it a "community day"... I was so happy to be able to go because I don't know a lot of the kids in her class simply because Maeve is dropped off really early and picked up late on our work/school days. So, three days a week Maeve has this life that I really know very little about... Kinda weird. But, she loves her school and her classroom is just great. Can't beat that. So, we had a good little showing of parents, kids, and teachers.

So, we went off to this great little farm about half an hour away. We'll definitely visit it again because it was perfect for the pint sized kiddos. It has a ton of baby animals and petting and feeding opportunities. All was great in the world until Maeve was eye to eye with an aggressively honking goose. That sort of ruined her desire to get close to any other animals the rest of the trip. Oh well... next time.

Up close and personal with the goats...


"Maaaaaa...."


Feeding the friendly ducks...


Amy and Bennett came along too because Maeve and Bennett were in the same class up until about a month ago. Bennett has since transitioned to the toddler room but wanted to catch up with some of his peeps... (ignore the wild hair once again... thank you).


Gran is in town this weekend and came along for the fun too...


"Cheese...."


This seems like a good place to rest my chin...


Bennett was brave and pet the new chicks...


Playing in the back of a trailer...


We put Amy to work... and it was Maeve's favorite part of the day...


The boots were a little tough to coordinate for this new walker... but, we figured it out... sort of.

Maeve, you are so cute and getting to be such a big girl. You should have come to MN this week with Char. Birhane would have loved to meet you. She loves looking at "Maeve pictures". Thanks for sharing them with us.
