Field Trip #1 - Grant's Farm

As mentioned before, Kevin and I took the girls to Grant's Farm. This was our first official field trip. Norah's science theme for last week and this is farm animals - so we thought Grant's Farm would be the perfect place for us to go!

We grabbed lunch on the way and headed out. Lucy was totally freaked out by the tram ride - no idea why, but she cried for the first 5 minutes. Once she realized it was no big deal, she wanted to sit up and see the animals!!

The tour guide called this cow an "oreo cookie" cow. Norah thought that was quite funny!

Once we got off the tram we headed straight for the goats. Kevin and Lucy went into the pen to feed the goats. Norah and I stayed outside the pen and Norah fed the goats through the pen.

Besides the farm animals, Grant's Farm also has zebra, elephants, kangaroo, buffalo, and ostriches. We saw the elephant show - Norah loved this part - which is great because next week her science topic elephants.

Lucy started to have a meltdown (understandable since it was after her naptime) - but we had already seen everything so we headed back to the car. Before we headed home we made a stop at Ted Drewes - we can't be that close to Ted Drewes and not stop, can we? Kevin and Lucy shared the Apple Pie Conrete and Norah and I shared hot fudge, cararmel sundae with whipped cream. Yum!!

The girls fell asleep on the way home. Norah woke up when Kevin carried her to her room, but Lucy was out cold!
