We have this wonderful free petting zoo/park/botanical garden here. The kids love to go and feed the goats, play on the playground, milk the cows, ride the ponies, etc. One thing we've never done is fish in the pond. A few weeks ago we met some friends there and one of them brought a fishing pole. My kids were in heaven. We were there for probably 2 hours and never left the pond. Jace mostly liked feeding the ducks (OK, I didn't buy any food and he was throwing them pebbles--but he thought he was feeding them). Amelia loved playing with her friends and I let her have a pony ride while Cardon and Brinly fished. It was such a fun afternoon.
We brought oatmeal butterscotch cookies to share. I was glad that they were gobbled up or I would have eaten them all afternoon. Lucy, Amelia and Emma Kate loved sittin' back, eating cookies and swinging on the swing. Good times!
