I thought McKenna would be too little for a pony ride, but I was so pleased to find out she wasn't! Next I was a little worried she would want nothing to do with this giant of an animal, but was again pleased that she loved it! She smiled the whole time!
And Austin, of course, was in heaven on his big ol' burro! He kept going "hee haw! hee haw!!"
The petting zoo was by far the best petting zoo ever! The animals were all really friendly and stinkin' adorable. Bunnies, chickens, a pig, a sheep, a momma goat and by far, the cutest bunch of lil' baby goats that I have ever seen! Honestly, I was tempted to stick one in the diaper bag and call him my own! They were 4 days old! And bouncing everywhere and headbutting each other. A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!
Austin did the same thing with these animals that he did at the zoo - went up to each of them and got down to their level and said "Hi!" "Hi Sheep! Hi Pig! Hi Goat!"
He did pretty good at first being gentle and calm but soon got a little excited and a little silly. At one point he was trying to "pet" the sheep and instead held on to the sheep's back and went for a ride! Feet up in the air and everything! This pic was right before lift-off!
We also got some Katelyn snuggles in!
Check out the adorable birthday cake that Rebecca slaved away for days on! She does good work!
