Summer Bucket List 2015: Critter Barn

One of the places we have never been until this year was the Critter Barn. I had heard from some other friends how much fun it can be so we met up with Jackie and Grace and other family to check it out!
There is an indoor part that has lots of animals to pet and to hold. It always brings back memories when I was a little girl just the same size and same age as Ava, when I was obsessed with animals. I held onto a baby kitten and sure enough it decided to poop in my hand. Didn't change my opinion of animals any but for whatever reason, we always joke about it as a family. Ava isn't as open to animals as I once was. She is still somewhat skiddish when it comes to holding and touching them.
This shows just about how much Ava is willing to pet an animal....just one tiny little finger can touch them

The goats must have been getting hungry because they were over excited to see Austin and Ava come over to the fence.
We revisited the baby chicks time and time again. They were fun to hold and would jump in and out of your hands.
Ava needed a little help but she got the hang of it.

We waited for quite some time to watch the baby calves get fed. They had us stand in a circle as they paraded the little calves around so we could pet them.

Ava looks like a little farm fashionista here. She told me she wants to ride a horsie. We might just have to put that on our bucket list next year.
The running of the lambs was also worth the wait. The sheep dog came out and showed them the way while we were all lined up on the sides.
Very fun to watch them all come out a runnin'

so many different animals to see

We got to go into the field where they all ran to. At this point Ava had had enough. It was hot and humid this day and we had done I think just about everything they had to offer there. Glad we got to check it out this year!
