2 Buck Tuesday (Year 3)

This year we only chose to go to the farm at our annual 2 Buck Tuesday Homage. It was just too hot to wander the full gardens this year.  The twins were a bit unsure of all the farm animals, Cami  was especially siddish of a cow that kept  wanting to smell and lick too closely to her.
Phoebe of course had no reservations when it comes to animals, she reached right out to pet all the animals. We kept having to remind her that some of the animals were look only animals so she couldn't reach her little fingers in.
Every year we once again realize wheat a great asset a little jail would be in our home for when we all need a little break from one another.
I think it's funny how ducks, one of the most common non petting zoo animals yet seems to entertain my children the most. They stood on the little bridge so long looking at the ducks that we eventually had to just drag them away. I guess we are instilling the Duck love in them well, only 15+ years till UofO will be lucky have 4 more Fergy attendees.
 We really liked this red headed goat, it had the identical color hair as Josh & Cami.
We even got to see a real live UniHorn; look closely and you will see the real live mythical creature too.
After all were done looking at the animals we took Phoebe for he most favorite part, the pony ride. The twins were too young for it, but they didn't mind too much 'cuse I just set them in the stroller and feed them Red Vines while they watched Phoebs. Phoebe was so proud to be able for the first time to ride the pony all by herself without her dad walking along at her side.
On the way out we took a Fergy group pic one the cute cow bench. Sophie was melting in the 90+ degree day.
And as always we had to get on the farm scale for our annual weigh in. My scale is reading 200 lbs...what can I say, it's all Sophie.
