A visit to the farm!

 Jason and I are committed to giving Ethan as many experiences and opportunities as we possibly can. This means we try and do activities each weekend. It can be a visit to the beach, park or library. Last weekend it was a visit to the Swan Valley Cuddly Animal Farm. The farm provides children with the opportunity to experience the joy of getting 'close and personal' with lots of friendly farmyard animals.

There are lots of things to do.......
  • Talk to the Animals -  Alpacas, llamas, Red Deer, ponies, miniature donkeys,
    a mini mule, Red Kangaroo, Emus, lambs, sheep, Milking Goats, Billy Goats, baby goats, a Scottish Highland Steer, calves, piglets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, hens, roosters, ducklings, ducks, geese, a Fox and JJ the old farm dog.
  • You can bottle feed the lambs, kids, piglets and calves  (although Ethan was a little bit young for this).
  • Nurse a chick, duckling, bunny or guinea pig 
  • Bucket feed the rabbits, guinea pigs and anything with feathers 
  • Pony rides
  • Tractor/Train rides (Ethan LOVED his train ride!)
 And playing on the tractor with Dad!
On the way home we stopped in to the ice cream cafe where we discovered Ethan likes the cone more than the ice cream!!
