The Big Red Barn

A sweet friend left a book at our house one day after coming over to visit. Since then, The Big Red Barn has been one of Ellie's favorites and has played a part in her animal obsseion. So, on Saturday, since we had Eric to ourselves all weekend, we made a trip out to the farm. Ellie is all about some animals and so she loved being able to roam freely with them...




She was all about hugging whatever animal she could. I was thinking she was going to come home with some type of thing, but didn't want to be that mom stressing about the germs...


Who knew?



So, I was so excited that they had a little Shetland pony there, but the poor thing never moved. He looks a little rough, huh? Ellie waving bye bye.


Then we had a picnic in the shade enjoying the not so hot weather.





We had a fun day and enjoyed the weekend with Eric. We got to watch the Gators take another win and Purdue was off, so they didn't loose, so it was a good sports weekend for the whole house (ha- just kidding Eric!) Eric's parent's gave me a new camera lens for my upcoming B-day and I can't wait to try it out and share some pics! Slowly but surely, fall is getting here!

What a cute farm. Glad Ellie didn't get bit by the aggressive pig! lol Never heard of that. Looks like she loved it. Lincoln is super into hugging animals too. Must be a toddler thing.

Cannot get over how much Ellie's changed since spring. Her hair grew like 10 inches and so did her legs. crazy. You look great, girl and the farm looks like way too much fun.
