This weekend, Rob's friend Bill from work had a little party at his house. He lives less than a half mile from us, in a little pocket of farmland.
First, we got to see the piglets and the huge momma pig.
Then we saw the chickens.
Then some tortoises.
And some chicks.
The kids absolutely loved the animals! Bill told the kids they could climb around on the farm equipment...
And when they were climbing into this one, he joined them and started up the engine for them. He lifted up the front and drove just a little bit with them. Robbie especially loved this!
There was also a haystack to climb and a little playground area.
Bill and his wife provided hot dogs and beef brisket and shredded pork, and everyone else brought sides and we had a good lunch.
Then the kids got to ride a horse! This was the first time for both of them.
It was a gorgeous day to be outside. And it was good for these city kids to hang out on a farm!
We went to our ward's Trunk-or-Treat that night (no pictures) - also on a farm! It was a nice, full day. Then we stayed up late and ate candy.
