Big Red Barn

Oops, almost forgot to tell you about our Sunday expedition. We went to see the Big Red Barn in real life at Drumlin Farm.

If you don't remember the words, here is an excerpt as I remember it:

Near the big red barn in the great green field, there was a little pink pig, who was learning how to squeal.

Ok, I forget the rest of the book, but here are some of the other things I saw.

Baby lambs aplenty

We also saw a newborn baby lamb who was only 2 days old. It pretty much looked like the one above only lying down curled in a corner of the big red barn.

We even saw Serena the cat, but she didn't want to take a picture while she was drinking out of a puddle. I didn't get a chance to ask her how she got all the way over here before she ran away.

These chickens are cage free
The chicken coop had chickens roaming all over. It looks like I am in a cage! Tricky mommy!

Sorting my eggs
Here I am playing the role of USDA egg inspector and sorter

I like eggs
I have already eaten 4 hard boiled eggs for breakfast this week

It was a lot colder and rainier than Saturday so we didn't stay long. I had a fun time anyway, in the big red barn.
