To round up our spring awareness campaign

after doing daffodils and eggs and nests and lambs and stuff like that, we went to the farm to see such stuff for ourselves. It was a bit windy, but we had a nice time all in all. Got to see the lambs and get a chance to feed them milk, and we even saw a chick hatch from an egg. Good stuff. Took the easter hunt tractor ride with his Dad and got some chocolate in the "enchanted wood", which he fervently described on his return as "a thick jungle with lots of animals and NO daylight". OK so piccies:

The peacock. Every farm should have one


Ignore that sign - Feed me!


Chicks


More chicks. Stop me if I'm getting too technical


Guard geese


Mill House


Lean mean digging machine



The highlight of the day


Much improved play area




Came home and ate the chocolate the Easter bunny "gave" us and read some Charlotte's Web and whale books, watched more of our hero, David Attenborough and played kitchens. Jaws very much furniture walking now and placing him in the walker produces howls of fury. He plays with the kitchen too - ish - and we all played "cooking" - he played "eating" except he wasn't playing because he really was trying to eat everything, but it's nice having two kids to play with rather than one and some background noise :-)

Just read THIS and made me contemplate what the future holds. *sigh*

*SHRIEK!* Just read it. Nah, is nothing to worry about. They have to make these plans 'just in case', and they just love to scare monger...I reckon it is nothing to be worried about.
