Summer is Here!

A few weeks ago I saw this post on another blog and thought it was a neat idea to avoid summer boredom. Anna Clare made a list of activities (i.e. pool, picnic, various local parks, TCBY) and put them in an envelope. She loves little games like this. Today was her first day of summer (blog post on the end of 1st grade to come, and her birthday, and the Disney cruise, and ...I am REALLY behind on posts!) so I told her to choose an activity. When she pulled "Landmark Park" out of the envelope, my first thought was "HOT!" But we loaded up and headed out.

First was the playground...

which was indeed HOT!

Can you tell my girls like to pose?!

Then we happened up on Farmer Sid and Elbert.

It was feeding time, and since we were the only ones in sight, the girls had the animals all to themselves.

Sid was so gracious and patient with the girls (and with me as I tried to snap pictures with a dying camera battery).

He let the girls gather the eggs...

and put them in a bag to bring home so they could have fresh eggs for breakfast Saturday morning!

He even kept the "mean" rooster at bay.

They had a blast! We thanked Farmer Sid and headed home with our eggs.

They couldn't wait for Daddy to get home so they could tell him all about it. And nothing makes Daddy happier than two red-faced, sweaty children who have been spending time in the great outdoors. Feeding time is every week day at 4:00. Your children will love it!
