Why Are Animals Like Heaven?

Seriously, my kids would be so content if heaven was just a big farm! They seriously love animals. Maybe it is because animals and kids are a lot alike. Both are really messy. Both are a little stinky. :) Both need to be fenced. Both need to be tamed but love to roam freely. The list could go on & on.

Carl is really in the long school schedule, so me and the kids go exploring. Today we went back to Thanksgiving Point to visit the FARM.

This was my favorite part. It was a little kiddie jail. If only I could have one of those in my house for "Time Out". A girl can dream. :)

Nothing like riding a fake sheep right? They are my favorite kind of sheep to ride.

They had food that you could feed the animals. These little goats would just lick your hands clean. Yummy. Thank you hand sanitizer!

Oh, how we do love cows. I really think Chick-Fil-A did us in with that one. With all their cow advertisement...It really works on these young kids. They can spot a restaurant or billboard a mile away.

Now this black cow loved CJ a little too much. He tried to eat his pants!

And, oh how we love those wagon rides. I think my kids asked the driver a thousand questions.

But, I would have to say, this was the icing on the cake. To ride a horse, that really is a little piece of heaven.

If that is not happiness, I don't know what is.

And, what else do you wear to a farm? Your National Champions Alabama gear, of course! Aww Yeah! I would say CJ was a little tuckered out, so needless to say, the trip was a success!
