Field Trip & Weather!!

Yesterday was Holden's class field trip to Schappacher's Farm. I know we have been to a ton of farms but the kids love them. But unlike the other farms, the kids were able to feed some of the animals. Just look at these guys, they are just waiting for some food! Our class was able to feed these the cows some corn! How exciting! Holden loved these beauties, he could not resist showing them a little love. There is just something about this age of kids and animals peeing, they think it is hilarious! And when the cows decide to relieve themselves...laughter filled the farm!
Since this is a working farm they had chickens, and donkeys too. Again, the kids were able to feed them too. By now, I should mentioned the winds were picking up and you could see the storm rolling in. We were able to take a short hayride to the pumpkin patch and then back to the barn to have a snack when the rains set in. I am not talking about a shower I am talking about a STORM!! Thankfully, we moved indoors for questions and then called it a day.
The kids had a great time and we were lucky to be able to enjoy the farm before the rain.
This farm is really close to our house so we only had a short ride home when Kevin called to tell me we were under a tornado watch. When we pulled into the neighborhood the tornado sirens began to go off!
So we spent the reminder of the day in the basement. Watching a Halloween movie. But from the looks of these two they did not seem to mind.
