Amazing Acres Farm

Sunday we decided to head to Amazing Acres Farm. It is a small farm about 5 miles from my house. I don't think they are open to the public all year, but they do things for schools and parties and that sort of thing. Last weekend and this weekend, they are doing "trick or treat with the animals". The kids all enjoyed it.

Delaney, Sean and Owen with the bunny "Butterscotch"

Jessica and Delaney feeding the chicken. It would peck the food right out of their hands.

Jessica's friend Corrine went with us. Here they are holding up the little rubber chickens and sling shots that you use to play "chick~tac~toe" It was a really cute game, however, they never got the hang of it.

Everyone got to go fishing, but it happened so fast that this is the only decent picture I got. Everyone caught a fish, some bigger and better than others!!

This guy was very hungry and very active. He loved it when someone would rub him, but got very "pushy" with the other goats when some one tried to feed him. Yet, he was gentle with the girls and would just lick the food out of their hands.

This one followed Owen around. I think Owen wanted to bring him home.

I think this one was my favorite. So small and sweet!

And even the animals need a good place to Worship!

What's got them so all intrigued, you ask?

These pigs are over 20 years old!

If I tried to pass this off as my Christmas card photo, do you think anyone would notice that I am missing one boy but added a girl? HHMMMMM!! Come on...I will NEVER again get 5 kids to look at the camera!

You may be asking your self why there aren't any pictures of Sean near the animals? Well, that is because he kept a safe distance between himself and the "puppies"

That place looks incredible! My barnyard duo would fit right in. Constantly my playroom sounds like a farm! (And smells like one too on occasion!)

I love the pic of everyone on the bench- that is perfect and no I wouldn't have even caught it!
