Today we took a trip to our friends' house to meet the brand new addition to their family - a little goat named Coconut. Goats are generally quite cute and to see them in miniature form is something very special.

When we arrived Rowan was very shy so he ran straight to the things he knew best - the sand box and of course his friend, Owens super cool workbench stocked full of various kinds of tools.

Later on as he settled into the visit we got to meet little Coconut and were even allowed the privilege of feeding the goats which Rowan was very excited about. I was impressed when he stuck his hand out to the goat to feed it. He did it once and surprisingly wanted to do it again. Then we also saw some ducks and chickens.

But I think the best part of the day was when he discovered their huge vegetable garden. He walked around looking for the vegetables amongst the leaves. My favourite part was when he stumbled upon a section with an absolute abundance of bright red cherry tomatoes and said: "Oh wow!" at the top of his voice. When he saw the big carrot that Jaime had just harvested he had pretty much the same reaction. I think we've got ourselves a little farmer on our hands.

  1. I love these pictures. It's funny because I have one shot of the goats that is nearly identical. I will have to post it for you to see.

  2. Jaime, I also took some nice photos of your two babes. I will email them to you when I switch my computer on again. One shows Owen with a huge big blueberry smoothie smile on his face. It is very cute.

  3. I can't wait to see them. Thank you Elaine.
