Kangaroo Farm

Today we went to the Kangaroo farm! What a great day.
In the picture below you you can see a baby Joey if you look closely. The baby is 6 months old. So cute!
We where able to feed the kangaroos also. Grandpa and the boys fed them wheat bread. The boys loved it. What healthy little kangaroos.
This one jumped up to give my mom a hug.
Andrew was bit by a donkey. He was so sad. Luckily he still has all 10 fingers.
The birds on the farm where amazing. The had all kinds of chickens, roosters, ostriches, emus, and peacocks. My favorite was a peacock that was in the trees way above us. I couldn't get a good picture, but it was an amazing sight!
The llamas liked to eat their pebbly stickish food right from your mouth. It was entertaining to watch other people do it.
Andrew and I got to hold a baby Kangaroo. She was so darling. Jacob wasn't interested in doing this he was having more fun swing on a huge swing with Grandpa and his cousins. Boys! --emily

Petting zoos are so much fun. Kids don't usually get the chance to get up so close to the animals. Sorry to hear about Andrew's fingers. That would put a damper on wanting to feed any more animals. How special to hold a baby kangaroo!

what a fun outing! I'd love to know where this is, so that we could go sometime.

It was an amazing day, seeing all of these strange animals from far away lands right here in the Northwest. They were all so sweet and gentle, and a little too anxious to eat, as in the case of Andrew. One was a great dancer too!
