One of our local family owned grocery stores, sponsored a fascinating exhibit this summer. The event was called "Farm Days" and my daughter and her husband took their three youngest children. This exhibit proved to be more than they had expected, and their children were excited to see and learn many new aspects of the farming world. As you can see above, this little guy jumped right into the chore of milking a cow. He probably did not have a clue as to what he was doing, but it was fun, and he does not want to miss anything "fun". Can you imagine what went through his mind when his dad told him," that this is where milk comes from."
On to the eggs...then on to the peeps. Can you imagine what they thought as their mother explained that the peeps come from the eggs. But, what about the eggs they eat each morning...how do they process that concept?
I can imagine they were asking to take this little, fluffy peep along home.
Very carefully he gets his turn to hold it.
So many new things to learn. Alpacas...how cute are they? We have dear friends who raise these animals, which has helped us learn many interesting facts about them. But, for this little grandson, it was his first introduction to the Alpaca world. My daughter told me, the children were thrilled with their visit, and for her it was a break in trying to find things to keep them occupied during this summer.
