Visit to Nature Center

I took the children to a nature center the other day. Here are a few pics from the day.

They had a donkey, 2 sheep, and some chickens I didn't get a good picture of the sheep, but they were as tall as the donkey. The kids were impressed.

While we were there, one of the volunteers showed up to feed hay to the animals. Because they were getting so fat, they had stopped feeding them grain. He decided that a few oats wouldn't hurt them that day. So even though the sign says, "Please Do Not Feed The Animals", they were doing it with permission.

Check out this barn built in the 1820's.

Frog counting by the pond.

In the visitors center, they had cookies, kool-aid, and this little bluebird craft for the kids to make. Great thing was-it was free. Can't get any better than that.
