We woke up early Saturday morning for Breakfast in the Barnyard at Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, Rhode Island. These Breakfast events allow children to be more hands-on at this living history farm. They milk cows, find the eggs that the chickens have hidden throughout the barnyard and (if they weren't one of the lucky ones to find an egg) they get to hold baby chicks (as you see Clare doing here--that little blur is the chick running quickly from her hands and back to its mama).
While the outing was very fun, everyone was showing signs of some serious grumpiness. We decided we needed to take it easy for awhile. The rest of the weekend was spent quietly with family and it was very enjoyable.
I had hoped to share some of this week's outings with you in this post, but I am dealing with a very fussy Baby Anne who is getting her first teeth. So those posts must wait until later.
