having a little person with endless amounts of energy forces you outdoors to see what your state has to offer. you know. i think by the time parker is three i'll have seen every farm/outdoor oasis in the state of massachusetts. so, in planning the week ahead, my friend rachael said, "how about drumlin farm?" so to drumlin farm we went.
four babies under two (do i have to stop calling them babies when they turn two? don't make me.), their mamas, baby goats a-plenty, a big raised gardening bed full of dirt and shovels for playing, chickens, hens, a seven-day old calf, pigs, a hayride, trails, and the sunshine made for a really nice day.
next up... davis farmland (anyone been?)... where i heard you can play with the goats sans separation fence! yessss! (thank you to those who gave me tips after this instagram!)
and any massachusetts readers: if you've got some more fabulous must-see places... gimme!
p.s. stating the obvious: baby pigs are nooot easy on their mother's.... teat? (having a ben-stiller-in-meet-the-fockers moment). we attempted to have an "oh, look at that! nature and nursing and motherhood-right-here-on-the-farm moment!" but it sort of made us cringe. mother pigs... kudos to you. mother-warriors, i tell you.
