This past Thursday, we took Norrin to Shadybrook Farms. He loved it. The pumpkins, the farm animals, the swingsets, the little water fountain, the tractor ride...it was all good and made him just so very happy. Norrin fed the goats, was a little too scared of a very furry cow, wanted to pet the chickens (hmmm...I don't think so, bud), pointed out all the body parts on a sheep ("eyes, ears, nose!). He took the lead and made us all get on the tractor ride. When we got to the pumpkin patch, he picked out pumpkins for me, Da and Uncle. Uncle turned down a few because they were dirty on the side (what?). We took turns hiding in a corn maze and jumping out to scare each other...Norrin was the best little hider and he certainly had the loudest scary roar. We had a wonderful lunch at the farmers market and then Norrin threw a few rocks in the fountain and took a few more turns on the swings. It was a great day and I love watching Norrin explore his world. He's such a joyful little man.
