Irene Dairy Farm has to be one of my favourite places to head out to on a weekend, and now that the weather is warmer, we took the Grandparental Units out there with us. Nothing beats that farm smell when you climb out the car. We off loaded the blanket, Ladybugs car and the backpack and headed down to the cows.
Ladybug decided to have a tantrum of epic proportion, mainly because she had fallen asleep in the car and Evil Mommy had to wake her up… unfortunately this set her mood for the morning and there was no negotiating with her. She wanted to go where she wanted, how she wanted and in her own time. This of course involved Mommy pushing her on her car and her not really steering where I wanted her to go!
She loved the cows, feeding them and investigating where they were. She loved the tyre swing and wasn’t going to do it the safe way, no she had to swing on it the proper way, much to Mommy’s disapproval and near heart failure! The morning was rounded up with a visit to (late) Great Granny’s oldest and dearest friend – and Irene Farm Yoghurt for lunch!
