We got up semi-early (after a major breakthrough on the sleep front), and I got her dressed in her "Locally Grown" onesie thinking it would make for a nice photo op.
However, a blow-out as we were leaving the house necessitated a costume change. I do realize that she does not need baby leg warmers and socks in 80+ degree temperatures. But her legs and feet are the only thing that stick out of her stroller, and I was/ am paranoid about sun exposure. Paranoid.
Anyway, we made it.
We did all sorts of novel farm-like activities. We weighed Scout on the hog scale (14 pounds, give or take). And she posed in front of the biggest boar.
|I was finally convinced that the leg warmers, while protecting her legs from UV rays, were roasting her.|
As a side note, the Animal Learning Center is air conditioned, has bathrooms, and a baby area with rocking chairs for feeding and clean changing areas.
We bypassed the line at the butter cow, and snuck a peak from the other direction.
|While I was caught in a rather unflattering pose, Scout was unimpressed.|
Other than that, we saw some animals, some flowers, lots of bizarre people, and ate some food on a stick. Next year, maybe she'll be ready for the big slide.
