Fancy Feathers Farm

Today our preschool 3 and 4 year olds went on a field trip to Fancy Feathers Farm.  This is a farm that has all kinds of farm animals from emus, ostriches, a turkey, donkey, goats, rabbits, chickens and some very large dogs!  The kids had so much fun seeing all the animals and even getting to hold a few of them.  The baby emus were my favorite and Cohen really enjoyed the emus because they liked to come and peck your shoes.  The owner told us they would untie your shoes if you let them but most of the kids didn't have ties so they were happy to let the bird come up and peck or touch their shoes.   It was all very entertaining and I think the kids really had a good time.
On a funny note, Cohen has really gotten on this kick about finding someone to marry.  And right in the middle of the field trip she looks at me and says, "Mama, I've got to find someone here who will marry me."  I think this is cute and really hilarious because lately she has nominated several boys to marry her...she doesn't understand they have to want to marry her first :)  She is into Wyatt, who is in the 4 year old class and you can see her move in on him in a few of these pictures.  Not only does my sweet baby like boys but she is going after the older her!
Ready to see all the animals

Cohen loved holding the baby emu!

Cohen & Will decided to feed the chickens their lettuce instead of eating it themselves

Cohen moved in on Wyatt here while they waited for a piece of lettuce from the garden

Snack time was with Wyatt too :)
