We hung out with Betsy and the kids for the morning. Randomly, Betsy was also taking that time off.
After Lucas, Ginger and Rosie were awake from their naps we drove out the the Wheeler Historic Farm.
We bought tokens for all of the different things to do that day.
First stop, the cow train!
Lucas was still pretty dazed from his nap.
All the other kiddos!
After the ride around in the train, we presented out tokens to the farmer here to milk a cow.
He first demonstrated how to do it, then invited each child to come up and try.
Mirah was a PRO.
With very little effort she got it to squirt. Which probably means the poor cow was really full.
Who was not that into it.
How was also a little weirded out by it.
But he did it!
“Ugh, milk hands.”
Speaking of cows. There were two cutie little calves in the back that were ready for their milk! All the milk that is pumped from the cow in there is given to these beauties. 20 liters twice a day!
Lucas was in love.
Until he wasn’t.
Even the ladies joined in!
It was really sunny, and we were SUPER happy to have our hats.
The wagon dropped us near where it picked us up.
We took a picture together on the tree house steps.
Then attempted one of the kids.
Their rosey cheeks will tell you how hot it was in the sun. It was very nice in the shade.
The kids. And Lucas, who just couldn’t be bothered.
Everyone was beginning to melt down, and we all agreed that it was time to get inside somewhere air-conditioned. So back to the cars we headed.
But not with our first taking a picture in front of this amazing tree carving.
Poor Lucas was SWEATY.
