A trip to the farm

A couple weeks ago Jason and I took Jojo to a petting farm.  I really like this place.  A few years ago my sister and I took her kids.  They really enjoyed it.  The best part is it like 5 minutes from our house. 

It was a beautiful day.  The weather was perfect it was warm with a nice breeze.  Upon arriving we went to the show.  It is short and sweet and tells about a couple of the animals at the farm and where things are located.  They end the show with a pig race.  Each section is to cheer on their assigned pig.  Our pig won.  Jojo checked out the pigs as we started on our way.  He really seemed to like them.

Next up we checked out the zebras, horses, and donkeys.  I love when the zebras are little and their stripes are brown.  We went on a hayride through the fields and that was probably Jojo's favorite part of the day.  He love being on the ride. 

After we got him out of the wagon we visited the baby animals.  This is probably where we spent most of our time.  Jojo love the piglets the most.  We checked out the bunnies, piglets, potbelly piglets, Brahma bull, and baby llama.  Daddy was showing Jojo one of the baby bunnies and was excited and squealed and the bunny almost pooed on Daddy.  Jojo laughed and kept saying "poop."  We laughed and laughed. 

To finish up Jojo and daddy checked out the turkeys.  Jojo liked being able to walk around with them.  We ventured over to the goat pen where there were quite a few babies and some more on the way.  Jojo wasn't interested in going into to meet them.

My favorite part were the calves.  I loved the little brown one.  For some reason brown cows are my favorite.  When Jojo is a little older he will be able to milk the cow at the farm.

We had a great day and I am looking forward to making this an annual trip.  It will get better every year.
