Upland Hills Farm 2008

Having a great time!

We met up with the Bennetts for a morning at the farm. We took the boys last year and they enjoyed it quite a bit and today was no different. This time they were right there in the middle of the action. Feeding the ducks, stomping through the mud and dirt, and trying to put their fingers into the mouths of all the animals. I was amazed at just how gentle and passive the animals were. Jake harassed most of them by shouting their animal sound at them and his version of "gently" touching them. They all seemed to enjoy the attention, no matter how annoying it may have been.

The highlight of the day was being able to feed the ducks and geese. All three of them dug their little hands into the buckets of corn feed and fed the animals like it was their job. They were surrounded by nearly a 50-70 ducks and geese that were quacking loudly and they didn't seem a bit apprehensive. They enjoyed the long tractor ride and had fun sharing graham crackers and drinking their milk. When we got home it was straight to the bathtub and then off to nap.
