Down on the farm
Ava, my sister Carrie, and I took a short drive (about 6 miles from our house) to a local farm for "farmfest" this morning. We saw chickens, llamas, pigs, cows, horses, ponies, rabbits, goats and sheep and had the opportunity to feed and pet several of them. It was a lot of fun. Ava enjoyed swinging on a tire swing and a horse swing made from a tire, as well as climbing on hay bales, playing in a huge sandbox, riding a tricycle and more.
I had no idea this farm existed so I'm glad that someone let me know about it (via a parenting message board), especially since it's so close to home. I'm sure we'll go back another time, maybe on a weekend so daddy can come too.
Here are a few pics from our day:

Not too sure about that huge horsey (though she did pet it's nose a couple times):

Ava got up from her nap talking non-stop about all of the different animals she saw on the farm today before exclaiming, "I love ALL the animals!" :) I guess you could say she had a good time.
