The Farm:

There is this cute little place not far from us simply called "The Farm".  They rescue animals of all kinds and charge a small $2 fee to get in, so that people can see the animals and be educated on which ones make good pets, and which ones don't. 
 They also sell produce and homemade items that they've created.  It's just a husband and wife team.  Look at these sweet potatoes that we found!  They were huge!  (BTW, that is Alanna's "I don't really want to smile, but I will because you said to" face.)
Some of the animals were just roaming the property, like this peacock, and pretty much allowed to do whatever they want.  I laughed out loud that this guy was just helping himself to the zucchini that was out for sale.  He was not afraid of people at all.
 This enormous pot belly pig was just laying there as all the hens and roosters were crawling all over him.  They also had a cage of feral cats.  Like 50 of them.   It was nuts.
 Later we found this pot belly pig just roaming around the yard.  Alanna was so proud to pet this pig and thought it was the coolest thing ever.  We saw the Charlotte's Web movie in a hotel while we were moving, so I think that might have had something to do with it. ;)  Cie-J looked at me and smiled and before he could even say anything, I said "NO!"
This little pony was Alanna's favorite part of the whole farm.  She announced that this was exactly what she wants for Christmas this year and that she would be telling all her grandmas about it.  HAHA!!!!!  He was a really sweet pony and let us pet him through the fence.

This was just the sweetest place and we can't wait to go back and visit.  Not pictured, were two cows, a lama, a donkey, dozens and dozens of chickens, quail, ducks, rabbits (we got to see newborns from that morning!), and other gerbils.  We stayed away from the goats!!!
