Merrymead Farm

guest bloggers: Lydia & Heidi

Yesterday we went to hang out with Aunt Rachel for her birthday (which was on Friday). We sang Happy Birthday in the car on the way out, but when we got to her house, she wasn't awake yet. So we never actually sang to her. (Sorry, Aunt Rachel.) Anyway, after Heidi's nap, we hopped in the car and drove to Merrymead Farm. Their Harvest Days (with a cornmaze and hayrides) don't start till this weekend, but they still had their animals to see. Plus the pumpkins were already out.

It's a dairy farm, so there are a lot of cows. Heidi said, "boo!" instead of "moo" for most of our visit.

The animals were so far away. Mama and Aunt Rachel didn't know why there were so many fences. They say it didn't use to be like that.

Here we are!

This cow mooed at us for awhile. Mama thought maybe she needed to be milked (look at her full utters! poor lady!) and felt bad for her.

What is Lydia doing?

Putting on chapstick in the middle of a photo. Silly girl.

When Aunt Rachel squatted down to take a picture with us, we both squatted, too.

Heidi wanted to take a kitten home. Mama gave it some serious thought remembering the mouse in the kitchen in the old house.

Of course, what is a trip to a dairy farm without sampling some ice cream.

Happy Birthday, Aunt Rachel! We love you!
