An afternoon on the living farm…

This afternoon we took a trip with our Nannie to the living historical farm near our house, where we got to feed some animals, water the garden, milk the wooden cow, churn the butter, wash the laundry & more! We LOVE going to the farm, and were so excited to show Nannie all the things we do there!

Someone forgot to tell Ben to water the flowers and not his shoes…

Churning the butter in the old farm house is ALWAYS the highlight…
