What a Difference a Year (well, 11 months) Makes!

I've been looking forward to taking Jillian back to Clark's Elioak Farm since we visited last October to pick pumpkins. We met up with our moms group there this morning and explored the Enchanted Forest sights, played, met some animals at the petting zoo, and had a couple pony rides. We may have to make this a fall tradition, because looking at pictures from last year's trip (just before Jillian started walking) and this year's is really neat!

Now that I've taken you along with me on my stroll down memory lane, some more fun pictures from today!















This was the closest we could get to having a picture of Jack & Jillian together with "Jack & Jill".
















Then we went to the petting zoo.

We saw ducks.
















And goats.
















Jillian thought that the goats needed their straw ON them.































We saw sheep, too.
















Jillian got to ride on the pony!























And before we left, the tractor got hugs.























Although I hate paying admission to places for Jillian to run and play, this place has so much for her to do and so much free space for her to run, it's well worth it and we will definitely be making a trip back before they close for the winter!
