Our town's Parks & Recreations Dept. hosts free events for kids throughout the year. (Well, nothing in life is free. Especially when one is paying property tax.) A few weeks ago, a petting zoo at a nearby park was listed as one of the summer events. This also happened to be my day at home that week.
The girls refused to hold the chick and then it pooped in Rich's hand, which they thought was hysterical.
Now, it should be known that Anna is terrified of all animals and bugs. She was also still recovering from that fever virus and insisted that someone (here it is Grammy) hold her lest one of the bunnies escape from its swaddle and attack her.
I didn't realize that baby bunnies are like human babies when it comes to swaddling.
I love this one - the bunny is looking at the camera.
There were kittens as well but the girls were too afraid to hold one, mainly because they were more active than the bunnies. I held one while they pet her head. Anna flipped out when she saw me holding it though. You would have thought that I was being attacked by a tiger. Allie and Em did well with the bunnies except for one minor incident. Allie was looking at her bunny's face and said, "Hey, I can see his teeth.... AHHHHHH." Rich grabbed the bunny from her.
