The Thrill of the Chase

Caleb eyes all his new "friends!"

Cooper takes an unexpected dive into the mud!

A really bad choice of footwear!

The boys and I ventured over to the Trader's Point Creamery this afternoon. On Fridays, the creamery hosts a farmer's market where local farmers display fresh produce and organic dairy and meat products. We arrived a few minutes early, so we decided to explore some of the creamery's livestock areas.

First stop was the chicken coop. Looking back, all I can say is: poor chickens! The boys loved the chickens, maybe a little too much! I caught Cooper trying to crawl into their coop! I was retrieving him from their corral when I heard Caleb say, "I'll turn you into a scrambled egg." I watched as he fluttered to and fro with arms extended ready to pounce on any unsuspecting and now petrified fowls.

Just about that time, Cooper totally wiped out in the mud. He was covered. As I was retrieving him, I also became engulfed in mud. At the point, I realized there is a reason farmers don't wear open toed shoes!

After the mud, we decided to exit the chicken coop and stroll around the farmers' market. I'm sure we were quite a sight between our mud caked skin and chicken feathers adhered to various body parts.

The boys had fun, but I'm not so sure about the chickens!
