Tio Jake & Auntie Scar: Johansen's Farm

On October 26th, we decided to take a break from party preparation and headed over to Johansen's Farm to check out their giant petting zoo!

 Lily was a bit rough on the little chicks at first...

But after her daddy showed her how to hold them without squeezing, she did fine!

 Both Lily and Brooklyn were very tender with the baby chicks.

 Lily, especially, took a liking to all things furry!

 And feathered!

Auntie Scarlet took a little extra time to show the girls how to properly feed a goat...without getting their fingers nipped!

 We all had fun feeding the different animals that the farm had on display...

 But I think the baby cow was every one's favorite!

 Although, Brooklyn really loved petting the mommy goat and her tiny babies.

Soon we were done checking out all the animals...because we ran out of quarters for their feed.

So we headed over to the giant blow up slides and bounce houses to let the girls get some wiggles out before we had to go back home.

 On the way out we stopped by the bakery to grab an apple pie and some apple cider doughnuts before hopping back in the car. (Actually, everyone but Kevin got back in the car. He had to ride his bike and hour both ways so that we could all have seat belts!)

Later that night Jake and Scar got a little rest while Kevin and I took the girls over to our ward trunk-or-treat. It was a lot of fun seeing all the different costumes and it was a great way to end the day!

by the way, I thought we were supposed to come with you...thanks a lot for calling me!!! LOL! kidding, kidding. I waited for you to call but when you didn't I figured we had a lot of unpacking to do anyway so it's all good. NEXT time though, we'd love to join you!

OH DANG BEC! I'm sorry! You actually called me before we left asking questions about unpacking and stuff. I thought you forgot about the farm and I didn't want you to be stressed out so I just let it slide. MY BAD! Next time though, for sure!
