Farmstead Fun

We had a really great weekend visiting Kyle's family in Kansas City.  We took Maddie to the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead Saturday morning and it was the highlight of the trip!
It was overcast and cool...perfect for pictures and very comfortable for being outside.
Maddie had a great time with her Grandpa!  
She really enjoyed the goats too...
We got up close and personal.  We got to feed them, but they were a little too anxious to get a bite, so we left that to Grandpa and we watched at a safe distance.
They weren't content to just drink the milk...
apparently my scarf was really tasty too!
The goats were super cute and quite photogenic!
Next, we thought we would feed the ducks and the geese...
 We stood by the fishing pond and Maddie was cautiously watching when all of a sudden, she BOLTED...right INTO the pond!  She was knee deep before we composed ourselves and reached her!
Next, Maddie sloshed on over to the playground where she discovered the children's garden.

Then we saw a turkey...
 and turkey babies...
and Maddie found out what happens when hungry little turkeys find a tasty-looking finger to munch on!  OUCH!  We quickly moved on stopping to enjoy the beautiful flowers.

We saw sheep, bunnies, goats, cows, turkeys, eagles, owls, horses, and chicks.  Maddie really loved it.  This is definitely a place we will go back to next time we are in Kansas City.  It's so lovely!
