Wheeler Farm

Gav and I had a little play date with his cousins Lauren and Katie, his aunt Heather and her sister Grace, at Wheeler Farm today. It was such a beautiful day and it felt really good to get out of the house. I can only pretend to clean so much. We started off by feeding the geese/ducks. That was the worst part. (For those of you in the dark...I am TERRIFIED of birds.) I did learn today that it's mostly the flying birds that bother me. These ones sure were loud, and I didn't let Gav out of his stroller...not because he was scared, because I was scared for the birds and what he might do to them! He is not always gentle with animals (or toys, or food, or clothes, or MOMMY). These geese would come right up to you, and they kept poking their heads into the food bag. It was sort of funny, in a creepy bird sort of way....


We saw a variety of smelly things, like chickens, turkeys and pigs and then it was on to the "Neighs!" as Gavin so delicately calls them. He is so stinkin' cute when he sees horses! And today was the day of all days for him...he rode his first horse! He wasn't scared a bit and he LOVED it! What a cute little cowboy!


We had a great day with Lauren (Coren as Gav says) and Katie (Tay ti) and Aunt Heather and Gracie! Thanks for going with us!

What a fun day! I think we are going to have to venture over to Wheeler Farm this week! I love when they ride a horse for the first time -- too cute!
