Earlier this week we got back from our Arizona trip, where we totally had a blast. However, I was so excited to dive into cooler weather and some fun Idaho traditions. This time of year in Idaho is seriously the best, all the fun fall festivals happen, delicious treats appear and the best part there are mini petting zoo farms everywhere! You might laugh, but I love them and Blake does too–actually she might more than I do and that’s saying a lot. 😉 So I was thrilled to take her to one this year. Last year we went to one, but she didn’t quite get the whole experience since she was only 4 months old. So we packed our bag with snacks, fairlife milk, hand sanitizer and the camera and were on our way. It was about a 30 minute drive to the farm and well, Blake fell asleep in the car, oops, so I was a little worried she was going to have a rough time. But boy oh boy did she prove me wrong. You know how sometimes these cute babes of ours will take 10 minute (power) naps, then wake up in the best mood ever and ready to do absolutely everything. That’s what kind of nap happened in the car ride over. THANK GOSH. However, that same 20 minute power nap that made our farm trip so much fun, also totally ruined bedtime…but hey? We’re picking our battles, okay?
When we finally arrived, I put Blake in the stroller, handed her, her sippy (full of fairlife) and into the farm we went! She lasted about 2 minutes in the actual stroller then she wanted to be a big girl and walk everywhere. Anyone else have babe’s that once they learn to walk that’s all they want to do? That’s totally Blake. Which I actually don’t mind most times, it’s just keeping her to stay close where the struggle is real. She immediately ran over to the “Bunny Hill”, which is the cutest little enclosed hill FULL of bunnies. I’m talkin’ probably 10-15 bunnies just hopping around in there. You can hold them, pet them, love on em’, whatever! Blake was in serious bunny heaven and my heart was obviously bursting. Next we walked on over to the cows, she “Moo-ed” at them over and over again and even got to meet a cute little calf! It was the sweetest to watch the Mama cow stay so protective and close to her baby–just like us Mamas do. Blake showed all the cows her milk and even tried to let a few try it….they politely declined. 😉 We hung out by the cows for honestly probably 30 minutes, Blake couldn’t get enough of them. She thought it was hilarious when they “Moo-ed” and even funnier when they accidentally ran into the side of the fence. It’s funny how much she teaches me to just relax and enjoy the small things in life. These cute babes of ours are great like that, aren’t they?
It was actually pretty fun to watch her drink her fairlife milk, next to cows, ironic eh? We actually had the milk jug in the car (because we had finished it earlier), so I made Marcus go grab it so we could take some pictures. I’m that person and it’s fine. Blake of course, smiled, laughed and modeled it because she’s my child and we take way too many pictures. However, I’m tellin’ ya more so often than not lately she’s not into pictures at all…so I better take them while I can.
We finished our little Petting Zoo Farm date with a pony ride, feeding the chickens and then a whole lot of snacks–because you always need snacks! It was seriously the best little welcome home after our little vacay.
fairlife is the only milk we drink in our house and it’s Blake’s absolute favorite! We choose it above all other milk because it has more protein, half the sugars and is lactose free. The fact that it’s lactose free is huge because lactose has caused so many problems for Blake’s little tummy and fairlife milk has not once caused a problem. There’s also a good source of 9 vitamins and minerals without any artificial hormones. Seriously y’all, this milk is honestly the real deal and…once you taste it you’ll never ever go back. Especially the chocolate 😉 it’s like you’re drinking a fudgsicle–but a healthy one. Learn more about why we love fairlife milk so much, here.
