Cox Farms Outing!

This is the little girl who, last year, sobbed at the sight of goats and refused to touch them, demanding to be taken out of "goat village" at our very favorite fall tradition.
 

And this year she told me she was scared, and that she would maybe need to cry, but she was actually willing to be put down and THEN she actually TOUCHED a goat!  Not one, not two, but THREE baby goats!


But ONLY baby goats, because they don't have horns and she was still VEWWY scared of the horns.

And since it's still relatively rare for our family to go "out" anywhere, I'm linking up with Cari for Theme Thursday: Out.


She also awkwardly followed this scary chicken-man around, waving her 2-year-old wave and then giving her poker face when she was offered a picture with it.

 
We got caught in a torrential downpour after a few hours, but it stopped pouring for just long enough for the kids to pause for a couple more photo opportunities (and grab an apple!).

 
And we even got rain checks, so we'll be going back for free when we get the chance!
 
Do you live in the DC area?  You MUST check out Cox Farms and their fall festival!  It's a total blast!

  1. My son went into a bouncy castle this fall - overcoming a fear that has been there since, well, since he first had the opportunity to enter a bouncy castle! Yay for the fall of progress!

  3. I love Cox Farms! I'm so excited that Evie will be able to do more than the corn crib this year. :) And that's too bad you guys ran into rain, but awesome that you got rain checks!
