My girls are fairly obsessed with this video and bargained to be able to watch it during breakfast.
We always play this game when we're at streetlights, where the girls are the traffic light monsters and turn the lights lemon yellow or cherry red, and I plead and plead with them to turn it back to pickle green.
After naps we played outside with friends and had a quick dinner. Then it was off to the farm to help put the animals to bed! Here are some funny faces while we waited for Anu.
Anu brought some flowers for Grace. Grace brought a flashlight decorated with pink ribbon for Anu. Such sweet friends!
Once inside, there was a brief introduction where we heard about how to feed the animals, what we might see while putting the animals to see, how to be quiet and slow and not shine the light right in the animals' eyes. Then we went to go see some of our animal charges.
Looking for the sheep -- they'd decided it was bedtime just a few minutes before we got there to "help" them and had to be rustled back out for their bedtime snack.
I couldn't -believe- how excited Grace was to feed them. Suki mostly tossed the food a couple of feet from the fence and called it a day but when she did get her hand near their mouths she laughed when they ate from her hand.
This goat actually tried nibbling on Grace's hair! She stood very still and calm and the adult helper nearby quickly extricated her.
We visited some other animals and shushed them to sleep and then headed back to the barn. Grace petted this horse so nicely.
