Oooooh, the next thing was the petting zoo! I mean, my son is not scared of anything. He stuck those sweet little hands right through that fence and put his fingers in that donkey's mouth! Colt was a little more hesitant, but finally Mason talked him into it. Mason visited lots of cool animals; kitties, goats, kangaroos, lots of donkeys, llamas, and last but not least; the Ze Donk. Thank you. I have never seen anything like it. It was a mix between a male donkey and a female zebra. What in the world?!?! I have never heard of such. How in the world do you just get that mixture?!?! Anyway, it was very interesting.
And of course, we attempted to get THE super cute picture of Mason and Colt posing all perfectly in front of the perfect display of pumpkins. Once again; DIDN'T happen!! :) We did get lots of good pictures from our visit there, though. I know these boys are worn out!!! We ended our fun day with dinner at Federal Grove; about a 20 minute drive to Auburn, KY. It is this old colonial-style house that is a bed and breakfast and they've recently started serving lunch & dinner. Seth & Colt had their rehearsal dinner there 7 1/2 yrs ago, so that was the last time I'd been. Marc and I were dating then and it happened to be on my birthday. :) It is sooo yummy; like Monell's in Nashville. It's family-style so we got to pass the best home-cookin' ever round and round that table and the waitress kept bringing us more & more! Cream corn, mashed potatoes, green beans, broccoli salad, country ham, roast beef, fried chicken, cole slaw, corn bread, and bumbleberry pie w/ vanilla ice cream for dessert! Am I making you hungry yet?? :) That was my kind of place! Now we're home, Mason's asleep, thoroughly exhausted from his big day, and Marc and I are just relaxing. He's watching football and I'm bloggin' away! Aren't y'all so proud of how committed I've been the last few days? :) Anyway, here are pics from our day:
The boys discussing what to do with this pumpkin
Look at my big boy playing in that little house with the big kids! He looks 4 years old here all with his little hoodie & blue jeans!
Time to eat! This kid worked up the biggest appetite! I mean, we couldn't keep the food on his plate fast enough!
I've never seen Mason do this before, but he was making his little monkey "walk" across the table. He was playing like the biggest boy!
Thank you, Coulter family, for letting us crash your Jackson's Orchard outing today! :) Y'all are always introducing us to these new BG adventures! Who ever knew that there were so many fun things to do in this smaller town? We're loving it! Something about living here though is making Mason grow right up before our very eyes! It is making us sad, but yet we're so incredibly blessed that he is so healthy and growing into this smart, outgoing little boy.
