Down at the Farm

Taking advantage of a warm May day and with the promise of cute newborn piggies we took a trip to Frying Pan Park. Frying Pan Park is a working farm modeled after farms of the early 20th century.

Ellie giggled with delight at each of the animals, but got a particular kick out of the chickens, which she referred to as “cockle-doodle-doos”. We had to make several stops at the chicken coop to satisfy her curiosity at all the pecking and bawking (no real cock-a-doodle-doos). She also enjoyed several conversations with the cows. Each time she caught a glimpse of the cows she would “moo” quite loudly at them. She loved it when they seemed to moo in response, and it seemed that it really was quite a delightful conversation for both Ellie and the cow.

Adam and Ellie have both turned into complete chatter-boxes, so we got live narration the whole way through about what each animal said, what its babies were called, and “Boy that calf pees for a LONG time!”, etc.
