Last month I decided to try and post something every week or at lest every couple of weeks about my area. I call these post The World Around Me...Here is my latest
My daughter finished work early today. I was off and the sun was shining so we took advantage of the spring like weather by getting outside. We decided on the local children's farm. First we stopped for some lunch.
As you can tell my grandson thought it would be more fun to wear his cup on his head than to drink out of it.
After we ate we stopped at our favorite thrift stores (since they were on the way)
I found a couple of movies and my daughter found this!
I told her she was crazy, that it would never fit
But she had a plan
I held my breath
Whew...she did it!
Next stop, the local children's farm where Cody played on the Swings
And the slide
He ran around in circles
And played peek a boo
While I took some pictures of the turkeys
And the swan
And the ducks by the water wheel
We stopped to feed the horse
Check out the llama
How often do you see cows in the city (This sounds like a new TV show...stay turned for cows in the city brought to you by butter lovers of the world)
Look at these beautiful baby goats
They were so sweet
Here comes the albino peacock
With this beauty not far behind
Next we stopped at the chicken house
This little fellow is having a bad hair day
And this one talked to us the entire time we were there
Not to be out done. Mr Rooster let out a big cock a doodle doo
Cody loved petting the deer
But was starting to get a little tired, so we sat down to rest
We were bored with the playground and the animals so we took a little walk to the other side of the farm, where this old building is
You might remember from last year that this is one of the area's that Cody saw a "ghost", It was in here that he saw an old man.
He didn't see anything there today,(I have to admit I wish he had) so we just looked around.
Isn't it amazing how quick kids get a second wind
We finished up our walk by stopping at the old graveyard where last spring Cody saw "The Lady Ghost"
We haven't mentioned her to him in a long time, but he still remembers seeing her.
he wasn't afraid and he enjoyed walking around the graves
It's been a long time since he has "seen" anything. I think he is outgrowing it already. I am not sure why children seem to have the ability to see and feel spirits, but his mom and I want him to be comfortable around cemeteries and old places where "something" might be.
One of the ways we do this is by giving him the camera to take photos.
I think he did a good job getting this one of me and his mom
And an even better one of his feet (giggle)
One last walk around the lake and it was time to head back to the front of the farm
We must not forget to visit the rabbits
Or the giant turtle
And last but not lest climb in our favorite tree
