National Ice-cream Day!

Today was National Ice-cream Day...who knew?!? We have an incredible farm bang smack in the middle of our city, the Experimental Farm that, for a fee, is open to the public, and runs a series of programs specifically geared towards kids. Today they had an Ice-cream Festival so my brother, my sister-in-law and I loaded up our kids and met up for a good portion of the day. The weather was perfect and we had a great time!

Going to see the animals and play on the awesome play structure has always been enough to keep Keira both busy and happy. She actually woke up this morning saying "Animals!" and rattled off all the animals she intended to see and pat. She must have said "cows!" at least 20 times on our way to the farm. Add to that mix crafts, giant bubbles, ice-cream demos and taste testing, games, music, getting to milk a fake cow, free ice-cream (in addition to the taste testing!), and a picnic lunch, and she was one busy little girl! We were at the farm for four and a half hours. Needless to say, within minutes of being strapped into her car seat, she was snoring! ;-) 

I love days like these!!! I have to thank my brother for finding out about the festival and inviting us to join him and his family. What a great day!
