Relaxing in NH

MiniM.E. and I are in NH this week taking a little break from everything.  While I love being in the new house, every free second I feel like I need to be tackling one of the little projects I have left to complete the move or make the house feel more like home.  It's so nice to take a break and really take a break from EVERYTHING.  MiniM.E. loves my parents house and we've just been playing and relaxing.  They opened their pool and we went in a couple times, but it wasn't very long lived as it hasn't been super hot and the water is still a little on the icy side.  The big hits are the hot tub, the kiddie pool (filled with hot tub water) on the deck and of course, the trampoline.

Today we went to the Friendly Farm because it was such a big hit last year.  We arrived amidst the chaos of a couple school groups and MiniM.E. was a little intimidated by the bigger kids and didn't seem excited to do anything.  Though my child often will act like I've decided to take her to a lecture on microbiology when in fact we are actually at the coolest playground or the beach or any other amazing toddler destination.

Fortunately, the school groups left, MiniM.E. came out of her shell and we spent a lovely few hours with the animals.  So lovely MiniM.E. didn't want to leave- at least not without taking some of the animals with her.  We fed the baby goats-- food and bottles, had a "goat parade" in which MiniM.E. made the goats chase her around thinking they were getting food from her feed bag, held the baby chicks and saw one that had just hatched, visited with the other grown animals, fed the two baby sheep and got our fingers suckled and even bottle fed the baby cow her WHOLE bottle.

Thanks Friendly Farm- definitely lived up to last year!  Looking forward to going again in 2015 with both the girls!!
