Well, for our final day as Junior Farmers (May 25th) we finally received the treat we had been looking forward to for seven weeks - the pony ride! The ride had been promised from the second week, but due to weather and crowded farm days, the event had to be postponed until the last day.
Alexa and Jared both LOVED their ride on Cricket. They were the last of the ten children to ride, and I was proud at how patient they were.
Then, as if the pony ride wasn't enough, we found out we were also going to go on a tractor ride! And the kids were able to grab either a chick or duck to ride with them.
I know. Alexa's duck looks like it's being squeezed half to death. The ride was short, but that was fine by me because it was a super hot day. Plus, mid-way through the ride, Alexa's duck almost pooped all over her.
