Field Trip Day at Thanksgiving Point

We had another fun field trip with Miss Angie's Preschool!
We went to Thanksgiving Point and saw all the farm animals!
Katy's started it off right with a pony ride!

Then we were off to Feeding the Goats!
I have to say that Katy is my bravest child
when it comes to a lot of things, including feeding goats.
I was a little nervous myself, but not Kate!
She jumped right in there and loved it!

This is Katy's best Friend at school -- Daniella!
Since I wasn't paying attention . . .
we missed the class hayride.
Lucky for me, Daniella said she would go on the hay ride again with us
so Katy would feel better about missing the whole thing.
Thank you Daniella!!!
We even got our own private ride!
After the hayride, Katy begged me for more money for animal food, but I was out of change. Katy was extremely disappointed. But this didn't stop her from getting more food. She just walked over to the vending machine and started picking up all the little corn pieces that people had dropped on the ground. She ended up with a pretty good handful. Way to go Beana!

This time she fed it all to the cows!

Shawn, of course, loved the day especially kisses from Kate!
But not so much the picture taking on the Sheep!
and he wanted to feed the goats himself . . .
and maybe take a picture or two!
But his new favorite thing to do, that drives mom crazy,

is stand in his stroller. What a monkey!

Hiking to the "Y"

We were so lucky!
This morning Bret got us all loaded up
and took us to hike to the "Y"!
This was the gate at the bottom of the trail.
We couldn't wait!
I really thought I could carry Shawn, but Bret said no way! Luckily Grandma and Grandpa Z were willing to watch him for a couple hours while we went on our big adventure. After a few switchbacks we were all panting like mad dogs and Bret said, "Aren't you glad we don't have Shawn?" I had to admit that carrying Shawn wouldn't have been very easy.
After about an hour hike, we made it to the top!
The kids were so excited!
Once we came around the corner and we could see the "Y", there was nothing stopping Tyler.
He was the first to touch it!

It was amazing up there!
The weather was perfect!

We couldn't have asked for a better day!It was so fun to be together!. . . laughing, talking, sharing water, taking breaks to rest, listening to Bret's stories . . . It was great!
Once we got home, Bret and I felt like our muscles had all turned to Jello. We were tired and ready to sit down and watch the cougar game. The next thing we knew the kids were asking "Can we go out and play?" and they played all afternoon!

Hiking to the "Y" was so fun . . .
it was something we will
always remember!
Thank you Dad!
You are the Best! We love you!
