Today we went to Bakerwoods in Ashford, CT. http://www.visitbakerwoodsfarm.com/
After I parked, I was getting the baby carrier situated while the girls were in the car seats.
"Mommy, There's a chicken in the car!"
"No, Honey; There is a chicken next to the car."
"No, Mommy; There's a chicken IN the car!"
"Holy shit! There IS a chicken in the car!"
So, right off the bat, Delaney's life long dream to hold a bird (inspired by Snow White) was checked off the list.
The turkey was very vocal and pecky, so D didn't like him.
We did the "I spy" Gnome trail. Very fun and so cute.
Afterwards, we were able to visit with Nancy, the owner. She is an amazing lady (read the history on the website). We told Nancy how one of the chickens tried to come home with us. She told us a hilarious story about how she got all dressed up for a function and went to get into her car, only to sit on an egg. Apparently, this chicken has a habit of laying eggs in cars. Delaney followed Nancy around and helped feed the turtles. Then, Oatmeal, a chicken let Delaney pick her up.
