Easter Update and Dairy Farm Field Trip

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We started celebrating a little early on Friday with an Easter egg hunt at my sister-in-law's house with Granny and Grandpa too. Daniel quickly got the hang of the hunt and ended up with lots of great treats and sweets! Then Sunday we had a beautiful spring day and spent most of it outdoors. In the afternoon Troy, Daniel and I headed out to the park to try Daniel's new bubble blaster, courtesy of the Easter bunny. We had so much fun!

Then today I chaperoned Daniel's daycare field trip to a local dairy farm. It had been cleaned spotless and while I was sad we didn't get to see a cow being milked, we did get to see all equipment. The best part was the calf barn where we got to pet all the calves. They loved licking our hands and arms and sucking on our fingers. They are a little skittish so you have to be gentle but boy are they cute!!

Without further ado - photos from our weekend and the field trip.

I'd love to take the kids to visit a farm - we did the rodeo here a few weeks ago - similar I guess..
Great pics - he looks like he's having a blast!

Sounds like you had a great weekend. The cows would have been fun to see!

Dima didn't know how to do the Easter Egg hunt at church last year, but he sure racked them up this year!
