Our Day at Blackberry Farms

Our neighbors invited us to go to Blackberry Farms with us today and we had so much fun! It is like a little pioneer village where you do fun things like riding ponies, hay rides, train rides, watch demonstrations like a blacksmith and basket weaver. We also got to see what an old school house was like with a teacher and everything. Daci had such a fun time and we got some fun pics to share!!
My anniversary present to Rick was dying my hair brown. He loves it! Don't you just love this smile on Daci? Its so adorable! She refuses to smile when we pull a camera out so this was a rare event.


Carousel Ride. Despite her non-smiling face she LOVED it. She kept saying "more!" when it was over.




We went on a tractor ride with a cute old farmer

We visited an old home and a lady told us what the pioneers' daily life was like.

We got to see lots of fun animals...chickens included











and goats

LOVE this pic!

They had little mini tractors that the kids could drive around on

We had a little picnic

and then went to visit the old school house

What a fun day that was!!!

Now, this next photo may be a little odd to you but I believe blogging is about sharing your life...the good, the bad, and the ugly! So here it is...

Daci went poop on the toilet! So proud of my little booger :)
