Sunday Getaway

Today i was feeling a little cabin feverish. We had not been anywhere in awhile and it was so nice out...why not take a delayed field trip. We traveled north of here to this little zoo/game farm place. It was tucked away in the woods, and you would never know it was there.
these were one of my favorites...some kind of crane i think...not sure.
Avery loved this miniature horse...he was not even as tall as she was. When we asked her what was her favorite thing she kind of gave us that "duh" face, like how did we not know the horse was going to be her favorite.
Mitchie wanted to take this goat home. It kept following him around bleating for attention. After we left he said he was sad because he wanted the little black and white goat to live with us.
Chris had a favorite too...in with all the goats was this gnarly old tortoise. He was so cool, and when you pet him around the legs and neck he was soft in a scaly kind of way.

Since I love animals also I can see why the kids wanted to take their most favorite animal home.
