Chickens, Grand kids and Snowmen oh my (the world around me)

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

Thank you for joining me for a trip in The World Around Me....

Brought to you by Cows in the City..For butter lovers everywhere(Giggle)

Hey let me out of here will ya?

What a great day you three had, Patty. Cody is a beautiful child. You could tell by the smiles on his face how much he enjoyed the children's zoo. I've never seen cute little goats with black legs like that. I've also never seen an albino peakcock... Amazing!!!!

I laughed about your daughter putting that big snowman in the car... Hope it made it home safely!!!! ha

Thanks for sharing your day.

It looks like a lovely day out for you all. I have to confess that i've never seen an albino peacock either so thankyou for that! What a lovely place to find in a town, Is it named after the resident cows? Take care xXx
