... and of course there was holiday tuesday ...

Well guess what?  Remember all that time ago last thursday when we said goodbye to Willow ..  ?  Well she came back, just for the day, along with her brother Ryder and three new friends for a day at the farm .. Ilan, Isabel and Aki ..

.. and we covered lots of ground together and got to see much about the farm that is special ..

We visited my vege patch for a look and a wander and grabbed some asian greens going to seed to feed the chooks and goats with ...

Willow and Isabel had lots of giggles .. wandering along hand in hand and Isabel reaching out to have both hands from time to time which meant stopping for a little jiggle and a dance and of course .. lots of giggles ..

We chatted with the goats many times through out the day ..

.. snoozed in a tree :) ..

.. looked for bugs and found worms and slugs ..

.. visited baby sheep, shooed lots of chickens, watched the ducks, patted the cats, saw all the horses with some kids lucky enough to spend time with them, met Tiny Sal and Dora, the two gorgeous belted galoway cows ..
.. and for the first time ever were serenaded by some accordain musci courtesy of Ilan, which turned into a spontaneous gig between Ryder and Ilan .. Ryder on 'keyboard' and Ilan doing 'percussion ..

.. for more peeks at what we did on the day ..
