Fun with Furry Animals

I was concerned about taking Jack to a petting zoo over the weekend - terrified that he is going to catch that stupid H1N1. I fought my flu fears... and brought him anyway. We went with Sarah and Ryan expecting big animals... horses, pigs, chickens, cows... you know, a typical petting zoo.

Umm... not so much. Three were some chickens... and a lamb, rabbits, ducks and tiny goats. No horses. No pigs. No cows. Oh well. The boys seemed to enjoy it regardless. In fact Jack had a special place in his heart for the little black lamb. Yes, he did sing Baa Baa Black Sheep to him... and then he decided to try and feed him the hay that was there for the animals to lie on top of. The neat thing was that the pens were very little and the boys were allowed to go inside them ... and pet the animals. Hence a "petting zoo."

The boys are assessing the lamb situation.

It appears at this point that Jack is trying to let the lamb run free.
He clearly takes after Grandma Sheep.

Not sure what they were doing to the poor little rabbits here...

Getting up close and personal with the rabbits.

"Hi Mom, can we get french fries for lunch?"

Shaking the poor little goat's tail... incessantly.
Reminds me of what Jack used to do to Chatiemac.

This is supposed to be Jack giving Ryan a hug... but it looks a little more like a tackle.
