Our trip to the petting zoo

On Wednesday, before I pumped Elliott full of cupcakes, we decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and went somewhere I'd been wanting to go for years- the petting zoo at Domino's Farms.
We went on a hay ride, and wondered around to look at all of the different kinds of animals. They had just about everything you could want to see on a farm.
We found some noisy geese, ducks, and roosters, and a couple of times I managed to get Elliott to say quack quack. (sounds like "Ah! Ah!"- Okay, not that close. We're working on it.)
We stumbled over toward the bunny cage, and there was one guy laying on the ground. I thought he had gotten out and would run away from us, but he stayed put while Elliott patted his fluffy tail.
Then we figured out you could buy carrot sticks to give certain animals, so we got some. The goats managed to steal most of ours, but Elliott got really excited to feed them. When he started trying to eat the carrots himself, we gave away the rest of our carrots and made our way to the hand sanitizer.

awe! this reminds me of a john and kate episode when they took aiden to a petting zoo/dairy farm...minus the nagging wife and passive aggressive cheating husband.
