nina's first pony ride

the farm yesterday was awesome! nina and i had a great time. she liked the bus ride, the pony ride, and the hay ride best. she chose to not milk the cow (can't say i blame her, it is kind of weird) but she did try to feed a sheep. unfortunately the sheep had been fed already by droves and droves of preschoolers, so they weren't hungry. we tried.

we also saw a donkey, horses, goats, chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys, bunnies, baby ducks, baby chicks and a sow and her piglets.

maggie did great with nick! no tears, but nick said she was very excited to go meet me and nina at the bus. i got a big hug from her, the she went back to doing her thing. well, i'm glad it wasn't traumatic for her, but a few minutes of snuggling would have been nice!

a video of nina riding a pony is coming, when the internet is faster. for now here are some photos.

or not, seeing as i'm having trouble uploading those too. hm!

What fun! It's hard to imagine that there are actually farms within driving distance of NYC!
Where is it, by the way? And how long a drive?
