I'll admit it. Maddox gets neglected. Since school has started he spends the majority of his days parked in front of the TV, playing cars and trains by himself or being dragged around on errands. He's such an easy going kid, which also makes it easy for me to ignore him. I decided I need to make a conscious effort to enjoy the one on one time with him, and that's why I've taken him on two (yes count it, uno, dos) outings in the past month. So sad. This was our second big outing to Superstition farms and I had so much fun with my little man. I love that all it takes is a few animals to feed,
a little hay ride around the cow farm
and some of the best homemade ice cream to get him excited (the ice cream got me excited too).
When we got there he clung tight to me so that the animals wouldn't eat him. Finally he atleast got on the ground and would feed the chickens,
and before long he was brushing all the animals (the chickens didn't like that too much),
chasing Toby the farm dog around and pretending he was a dog (with cow poop on his shoe that he brought home as a souvenier),
and trying to feed the animals goat poop that he had found on the ground. lovely. How cute is this little 2 day old calf??
I loved spending the morning in his little world. I really need to do that more often.
