We spent the day at White Post Farms in Long Island, NY with A and her Mom and Dad, two of my closest friends I consider family. The girls love love love spending time with A.
The farm has a big petting zoo. You can buy milk bottles and ice cream cones filled with food to feed the animals. I think this is the only petting zoo that uses ice cream cones. The girls had a blast feeding the animals.
You could only give the milk bottle to the sheep and goats. They preferred the food so the girls had to try hard to find animals that wanted the milk.
All of the girls took a pony ride. They even let my Baby on with my Grouchy Husband walking next to her. She had this expression on her face the whole time. I don’t think she could believe she was riding a pony.
We visited the bird sanctuary this year. You buy these $2 sticks of food, hold it in front of where the birds are sitting, and they walk onto your stick to eat. This was sooo much fun and the girls were in complete amazement to be holding a bird. If we lived closer, I would visit the farm often so the girls could spend time with animals and I wouldn’t have to take care of them.
The girls took a train ride and got the caboose all by themselves.
My Princess and A got on the stage of one of the live performances for a dance party. This was so cute.
We ended the day taking a family picture in the pumpkin patch. I was so tempted to use this picture for our holiday card but thought the pumpkins would feel off-season.
We spent 4 hours at the farm and didn’t see and do everything! It was a wonderful family day with great friends.
