Oil Ranch

I was excited to take Mallory on her first field trip in pre-school! We went to the Oil Ranch and I decided it would be fun to take Mia as well. Well, that ended up being the best choice because Mia LOVED the farm. She wanted to do everything. We started by milking cows.
Mallory said- I am not touching that pink thing!
Mia said- I want to do it!
And she did. That girl has no fear.
Then we rode horses, fed cows, rode a train, played in a park, fed goats and had a picnic. They both loved but I think Mia really enjoyed it the most. She keeps saying,"Remember when....

The train was a big hit. It reminded me of Zilker Park in Austin.

The class line up

Mallory lovin the horse. She wanted to ride more than once.

Mia on the tinest pony I have ever seen! So cute and she had a fit when it was time to get off!

Mallory was not liking the cow idea- they smell but Mia thought milking the cow was cool.

All in all, a great day and fun memories. I would say it is worth the drive and lots of fun for a family outting. And now I know Mia will be on Cole's farm for sure.

LOL! I am happy for Mia that she gets to be on Coles farm.
How fun! I am going to have to look into that more and take my kiddos. It looks like a blast.

I love that place. So cool how the cows can eat from the kids hand. I think it has been 2 years since we have been there!!

Okay I'm going to finish that Vampire book ASAP.....
