Here's some pictures of our impromptu trip to Chalberg Farm. We ended up getting there just in time to feed the animals with Farmer Jack. The lamb in the pictures was bottle fed from birth so it was sort of a pet. One of the other ladies there asked what her name was and the farmer said, "She doesn't have a name, I don't name things I'm going to eat!" I thought it was funny because that's what my dad would say!

A different lady there had a 2 yr. old baby who was petting the lamb. The lady said to the little girl, "Pet the baby goat, Honey! They cut the hair off them to make cotton clothes out of it!" I almost said, "Oh, so what's the stuff they pick out of the fields down south?" John said I should have asked her if wool came from the woolly mammoth? LOL

We took the trail through the woods to the Bailey Family Cemetery and it was well worth it. Very beautiful! It was a long walk though with the kids - almost a mile and a half!

Wow! That looks like fun! Luke really reminds me of Levi, especially with those sideburns growing! Jozie's defiance picture looked like you;) Not defiant...just a resemblance in the face. And how do you mix up a kid with a lamb???? Gosh, that is funny!

That is hilarious about the wool/cotton thing! Some people are so clueless about things. Sounds like you had fun!

The wool and cotton thing made me laugh really hard--especially the "clueless" comment...

My old roommate in college saw a bunch of cows on the side of the road on the way back from Wally World one day, and she was like, "MMMMMMM, BACON!!!!!!!"
