A Year of Thanks

Today marked the first day we went to the Barn, a local favorite, well, barn. The barn is closed during the winter months, and though it opened a few weeks ago, today was the first day I was able to take the kids. It’s a great place to take the kids for an hour or two. You can pick berries, pet the animals, shop for produce, and get a great ice cream cone.

We met my sister, her children, and my aunt who is in town visiting for a few days. It was a warm and a perfect day for the kids to run around. It was also–thankfully–not that busy.

The kids fed and pet the goats, ostrich, and even a duck:

I know these animals look sad, standing behind a fence and in a cage. But I actually think they have a pretty good life. Families come and talk to them, kids throw them food, and the owners feed them and care for all their medical expenses. Not too shabby.

We ended the outing with a trip to their old-fashioned ice cream shop. Luke enjoyed having his own ice cream cone and I appreciated the small size they offer–perfect for little hands:

It was a great afternoon, and I am thankful that the barn reopened and provided excitement for a few hours.
