Walking onto the farm, we saw three cows
Trying to get a picture with the cows behind them
(they were a little nervous)
We headed over to see the chickens, learn about their lives,
and then the girls were given a chance to feed the chickens.
Caroline just threw the food around
But Elizabeth would kneel and let them eat out of her hand
Then we went inside to see where they sleep and lay eggs.
The park rangers take the eggs and feed them to the pigs
After feeding the chickens, we walked over to see the pigs.
They were brand new to the farm (brought to the farm the day before)
After the Park Ranger fed the pigs we walked over to the horses.
She showed the kids how to feed the horses and then let them do it.
Caroline sat under the horse during the Park Ranger's presentation and I was so nervous!

We had a GREAT time at the Oxon Hill Farm! I highly recommend checking it out. It's free and they have a few scheduled activities in the morning (like feeding the animals and a story time). They also have a ton of picnic tables by the parking lot.
Happy Wednesday y'all!
