As a busy working mom and with my little one now in nursery school, I decided to plan my first spring break around an animal theme; Let’s Learn About Animals. Unfortunately, our scheduled trip to the Toronto Zoo had to be postponed due the drop in temperature through the March Break.
None-the-less our week was quite memorable, and for certain, the highlight was a trip to a friend’s hobby farm. Patrick was absolutely fascinated to meet real life versions of the animal characters from his story books. Despite a little apprehension – he was absolutely glowing with excitement and warmed up quickly to the experience. It wasn’t long before he was feeding, petting and running about with the chickens, hens, geese, ducks, rams, ewes and the sweet baby lambs.
Of course, being an adventurer at heart, it was imperative to test out the rubber boots, which resulted in tromping though mud and stomping in the puddles. Low and behold, Patrick also spotted a tractor, which further fueled his love for anything with wheels.
Our hosts were amazing and the experience was truly amazing.
“Go back soon mommy, go back soon?” “Yes Patrick, we will go back soon!”
