Fun at the farm & Five months old
What a day! Old Mine Ranch was a definite win. Soren got to see a bunch of animals (goats, ponies, chickens, turkeys, peacocks, donkeys, llamas & sheep). He got to feed the goats. He got to play on a big plastic culvert pipe slide. He got to go on a mini-train ride and sit on an old tractor. He got to jump and frolic in a bouncy house. And he got to ride a pony.
How awesome is that?! He did great, and totally seemed to enjoy himself. I couldn't be much prouder.
It was an absolutely gorgeous day, to boot. Nice and sunny, but not too hot. Unfortunately, I forgot I'd brought the sunscreen in the house; as a result, I was unable to find the sunscreen anywhere in the car, so we had to do without. Soren, surprisingly, did okay. My shoulders, neck & chest, however, look like a damned tomato. Whee!
I took quite a few pictures at the farm (no great surprise), and they're up on Flickr. Alas, as is frequently the case, I have none of Eleri at the farm, since she spent the whole time chilling in the pouch, where it's really tough to get a good picture of her with the 50mm lens. (If only I had Go-Go-Gadget arms...) I did, however, get a bunch of her showing off her strong back muscles in the evening at home. Here's a quick comparison of the two at 5 months old.
There's no denying it. We've got some damn cute kids.
