Down at the Farm

If you know the Signing Time videos (our favorite ASL videos), then sing along with me, "Down on Leah's farm there is one big turkey, one big, one big, one big turkey." If you don't know Signing Time, you can sing, "Old Macdonald had a farm." For Joy School on Monday we went to Melisa's dad's farm in Taylor.
First we fed the horses some apples.

Then the kids got to feed a calf from a bottle.

Hannah was so excited about the kid-size goats. She kept leaning down and saying, "Hi! Hi!"

Kenzie liked the goats as well. The goats in the pictures, not those other kind.

The poor 3 little pigs. They were scared to death of the kids and tried to hide by burying themselves under each other.

They had a turkey that was friendly and all the kids loved touching its feathers.

Back at the farmhouse their were miniature horse rides and a playhouse that Melisa played in when she was little and her dad had sanded down and fixed up for the preschool kids to play in.

Not only did they get pony rides, they got tractor rides. It was seriously like a dream-kid day. Melisa's dad was so nice to arrange it all.

My kids love the farm too, more than the zoo.

Okay, where is this place at? Taylor? Is that far away? I'm horrible, huh?

That looks like a blast. My kids would love it.

"Everybody's hoppin', nobody's stoppin', everybody happy down at Leah Farm." I am going to be singing that in my sleep now. That is so fun, and quite a learning experience.

Holy Cow!! They actually have farms in Utah? Maybe I could end up in Utah one day...


We went to a free hay ride yesterday that was powered by Clydesdale horses.

My sons spent the entire trip obsessing over the poop bags hanging on the horses. I'm a bit worried that they're making plans to outfit themselves with some poop bags so they can continue on with their video game sessions for longer.

Wow, what a blast and you have some seriously fun pictures there. I never heard of Signing Times until last weekend but am going to be receiving some of the videos soon to review--can't wait!
