The "Hairy" Farm

So we went with Josh's preschool to a dairy farm this morning.

We had a really good time.

On the way there, Becky said, "Mom, we are going to a HAIRY farm!"

I said, "No, honey, we are going to a DAIRY farm."

She replied, "No, it's a HAIRY farm. My Dad said so."

Well, I guess he would know...right?

Anyway, we got to enjoy all the sights and sounds and smells (mmm, mmm, good) of a working dairy farm.

The kids got to take a tour of the farm, including a hay ride, looking at a chicken, up close and personal, playing on the farm equipment, and duck racing with old fashion water pumps (they used the pumps to float a rubber ducky down a pipe).

They even got to pet a sheep and have some ice cream.

The highlight of their adventure was making a "dirt baby." It is a little stocking full of dirt and seed that the kids glued googly eyes on. The seeds will eventually spout and look like the baby is growing hair.

So, I guess Troy was right, it WAS a HAIRY farm.

I love Cows and Corn. We were going the Kirsti's Preschool in Thursday but it was raining and Kendall was throwing up all night. I hope Josh didn't get it?
There really is a lot of hair at farms, so Becky is not that far off.

Ha ha that is so funny we went to the same place yesterday. You are so smart to bring a camera I forgot mine and it was cold. Glad to see you had a hairy day. =)
